About this Item

Miescher, Johann Friedrich (1844-95). Ueber die Beziehungen zwischen Meereshöhe und Beschaffenheit des Blutes. Offprint from Correspondenzblatt für Schweizter Aerzte (1893). 809-832pp. Text diagrams. 249 x 174 mm. Original printed wrappers, one corner a little chipped. Fine. Miescher's copy, with his stamp on the front wrapper and title and printed label on the front wrapper. First Edition, Offprint Issue. The Swiss physiologist Miescher is best known for being the first to isolate and identify what we now know as DNA. Toward the end of his life, suffering from the tuberculosis that would eventually kill him at age 51, he began researching the effect of high altitude on the composition of the blood. He confirmed that at 6000 feet above sea level the number of red blood cells per cubic centimeter is eight million as compared with five million at sea level. In the present work, the text of an address delivered before the Congress of Swiss Physicians in 1893, Miescher stated that "climate on high mountains is the best which most effectually restores health and by which a maximum activity in the production of new blood is set up, with a minimum of discomfort in the process of acclimatization" (quoted in Mosso, Life of Man in the High Alps [1898], p. 277).
