About this Item

Series: The Development of Science, Sources for the History of Science. 8vo. xii, 304; 183 pp. 2 volumes in 1. Beige/tan cloth stamped in red. Fine. Reprinting of two noted works about Virchow. Ackerknecht's biography dates from 1953. Ackerknecht, born in Poland, came to the US due to WWII, became the first Chair in the history of medicine at the University of Wisconsin; the second such position in the United States. Julius Schwalbe (1863-1930) completed the "Virchow-Bibliograpie. . .", first printed in 1901, with contributions from five distinguished associate editors: Becher, Pagel, Strauch Weyl and Schwalbe. Lelland J. Rather described the work as "monumental." "The work is divided into two parts. The first lists in chronological order Virchow's publications in pathology, parasitology, epidemiology, social medicine, public health and sanitation, medical history and philosophy, forensic medicine, military medicine, school hygiene, and medical therapy. Included also are a few publications of a more general character, such as those on Goethe as a natural scientist and on Darwinism and evolution. The second part lists Virchow's publications in anthropology, ethnology, and archeology. Schwalbe's two lists are almost definitive. Virchow survived for another eleven months after their completion, but his career came to a rather abrupt end on a rainy night in Berlin on January 4, 1902, when he slipped and fell after dismounting from a streetcar. . ." " See: Lelland J. Rather, Commentary on the Medical Writings of Rudolf Virchow: Based on Schwalbe's . Norman Publishing, 1990, p. iv. ISBN: 0405138326. Bookseller Inventory # RH1454
