Das Verhalten der Eigenwärme in Krankheiten.

Leipzig: O. Wigand, 1868.

This classic work on temperature in disease laid the foundation of modern knowledge regarding clinical thermometry. Garrison has said of Wunderlich that he “found fever a disease and left it a symptom.” The book was translated into English and published by the New Sydenham Society in 1871.
