About this Item

272 x 218 mm. 4to. Pages 763-766. [Entire volume: 1555, [1] pp.] Brown cloth, gilt spine; lightly rubbed. Ex library blind-stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington Solar Observatory, 2 small paper spine labels. Very good. FIRST EDITION. "Toxoplasma described." Garrison and Morton 5534. "Nicole described African infantile leishmaniasis and differentiated it from kala-azar, generally found in India. He discovered leishmaniasis in the dog, which was thus recognized as the reservoir and vector of this disease; and he developed a culture medium that made it possible to study various types of Leishmania (1908). In collaboration with L. Manceaux, he isolated a previously unknown parasite of Tunisian rodents, Toxoplasma gondii (1908). Other researchers later established that toxoplasmosis is also a human disease" DSB, XV, p. 454. Charles Nicolle was Director of the Pasteur Institute of Tunis, and an outstanding scholar well known as an excellent writer. Nicolle accomplished important work in leishmaniasis (a disease caused by protozoa), and was the first to show that typhus fever was transmitted by the body louse (1909). See: Castiglioni, A history of medicine, p. 813. Nicolle won the 1928 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine "for the successful transmission of exanthematous typhus fever to chimpanzees in the acute stages by the injection of a small amount of the body louse." Wasson, Nobel Prize winners, p. 766. Bookseller Inventory # M8072
