About this Item

171 x 108 mm. 8vo. xxxviii, [4, blank], 331, [1, explicatio figurarum] pp. Headpieces, tailpiece, 3 engraved folding plates. Contemporary marbled boards; spine label missing, rubbed. Very good. SECOND LATIN EDITION. THIS IS THE FIRST EDITION TO CONTAIN THE PREFACE BY HENRI-AUGUSTE WRISBERG, WITH FOLDING PLATES. "An exhaustive study of typhoid, which the writers confused with dysentery and relapsing fever." Garrison and Morton. "During the heavy typhoid epidemic at Gottingen (1757-63), a careful account of the disease was published, in 1762, by Johann Georg Roederer, professor at the Gottingen clinic, and his assistant Wagler, who made autopsies of the cases. The intestinal lesions were carefully noted, but the authors regarded the disease as identical with intermittent fever and dysentery." Garrison, History of medicine, p. 404. Garrison goes on to remark that "Perhaps for this very reason the unique monograph was soon forgotten." But judging by the six editions listed in Wellcome, IV, p. 546, from 1762 to 1841, it was not forgotten as soon as Garrison suggests. Heinrich August Wrisberg (1739-1808) is known for the discovery of the nervus intermedius ("nerve of Wrisberg") described in his Observationes anatomicae de quinto pare nervorum encephali (Gottingen, 1777). See: Garrison and Morton 1252. Blake, NLM, p. 385; Hirsch, IV, p. 178; Wellcome, IV, p. 546. See: Garrison and Morton 5021 (Gottingen, 1762); Waller 8070 (Gottingen, 1752).
