An alternative Path: The making and remaking of Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital.

New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, 1998.

"When Hahnemann Medical College was founded in Philadelphia in 1848, it was the only institution in the world to offer an M. D. degree in homeopathy, a therapeutic and intellectual alternative to orthodox medicine. This institutional history situates Hahnemann in the broader context of American social changes and chronicles its continual remaking in response to the rise of corporate medicine and constant changes in the Philadelphia community. In the nineteenth century, Hahnemann provided a distinctive and respected identity for its faculty, students, and supporters. In the early twentieth century, it accepted students denied admission elsewhere, especially Jewish and Italian students. It taught a flexible homeopathy that facilitated curricular changes remarkably similar to those at the best contemporary orthodox schools, including selective assimilation of the new experimental sciences, laboratory training, experience in the school's own teaching hospital, and a lengthened course of medical study. Hahnemann is no longer homeopathic, although it remained loyal to its alternative heritage long after the 1910 Flexner Report attempted to eliminate alternative medical education in America. Like many other American medical schools, Hahnemann has had its share of problems, financial and otherwise. The civil rights and radical student movements of the 1960s and 70s, however, pushed the College into a more politically conscious view of itself as a health care provider to the inner city and as a producer of health professionals. In 1993, the College merged with another Philadelphia medical school into a single health care and training institution called the Allegheny University of the HealthSciences. Although Hahnemann is now part of a new system of academic medicine, its institutional legacy endures, as it has in the past, by following alternative paths" (publisher).

Dying in the City of the Blues: Sickle cell anemia and the politics of race and health.

Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina Press, 2001.

"Set in Memphis, home of one of the nation's first sickle cell clinics, Dying in the City of the Blues reveals how the recognition, treatment, social understanding, and symbolism of the disease evolved in the twentieth century, shaped by the politics of race, region, health care, and biomedicine. Using medical journals, patients' accounts, black newspapers, blues lyrics, and many other sources, Keith Wailoo follows the disease and its sufferers from the early days of obscurity before sickle cell's "discovery" by Western medicine; through its rise to clinical, scientific, and social prominence in the 1950s; to its politicization in the 1970s and 1980s. Looking forward, he considers the consequences of managed care on the politics of disease in the twenty-first century" (publisher).

Beyond germs: Native depopulation in North America. Edited by Catherine M. Cameron, Paul Kelton, and Alan C. Swedlund.

Tucson, AZ: University of Arizona Press, 2015.

This book "challenges the “virgin soil” hypothesis that was used for decades to explain the decimation of the indigenous people of North America. This hypothesis argues that the massive depopulation of the New World was caused primarily by diseases brought by European colonists that infected Native populations lacking immunity to foreign pathogens. In Beyond Germs, contributors expertly argue that blaming germs lets Europeans off the hook for the enormous number of Native American deaths that occurred after 1492.

"Archaeologists, anthropologists, and historians come together in this --- volume to report a wide variety of other factors in the decline in the indigenous population, including genocide, forced labor, and population dislocation. These factors led to what the editors describe in their introduction as “systemic structural violence” on the Native populations of North America" (publisher).

Shadows in the valley: A cultural history of illness, death, and loss in New England, 1840-1916.

Amherst, MA: University of Massachusetts Press, 2010.

"...The study is organized for the most part around disease categories and the life cycle, so that the cultural framework of people's habits and values often seems secondary. Most of what we learn about illness and death in between 1840 and 1880 (the core decades of the study) will not surprise anyone familiar with these matters during this well-studied historical time. Infectious illness was rife, life expectancy at birth was low, medicine was various and largely ineffective, government was weak, and religion and community were the contexts in which families faced death and loss. Swedlund's research is deep and spans many different kinds of texts, from census reports to material objects. His chapters on childhood diseases and on tuberculosis make particularly good use of the range of sources, and add the heft of local detail to the broader perspectives of epidemiology and medical practice. Other chapters are less well formed, especially one in which discussions of pregnancy, men's industrializing labor, and the Civil War yield too many strands to be tied into a clear argument.

The people of Deerfield, like those of many New England towns, managed over time to preserve not only public records but also powerful personal texts—diaries and letters—that evoke the reality of losing a child to death or struggling to relieve the suffering of a spouse. Swedlund has come up with several fine diarists, and he includes generous swatches of text that make it possible to enter into the descriptive and imaginative worlds of his subjects. Presented with respect and care, the words of these women and men more often illustrate than drive the analysis. An exception to this is the final chapter, where Swedlund looks closely at certain practices surrounding death—cemetery art, memorial rituals, and the poignant desire of families to prepare bodies for burial and keep personal mementos close. Individuals we have met earlier in the book reappear and seem more fully at home in their beliefs than at any other point in the study. Children are throughout the book, and in this final chapter, on the last page, Swedlund observes of his work, "The one persistent theme I discovered was the genuine, heartfelt grief of a parent at the loss of a child" (p. 190). It suggests a theme that might have been used in a critical way to pull together into a cultural whole all that the book has to say about Deerfield and death" (https://muse.jhu.edu/article/447551)

Two essays. [Essay I. Of suicide]

London, 1777.

Of suicide, "probably the most widely read and most influential philosophical treatment of suicide written in modern times," was written in 1755 and originally intended to be published as one of five essays, including The natural history of religion and Of the immortality of the soul, in that year. Advance copies were printed and sent to friends, but two of the essays, including Of suicide, were withdrawn for fear of official persecution. Clerical critics of Hume knew of the essay and referred to it as evidence of Hume's atheism and immorality; a French translation was published in 1770 without Hume's knowledge, and the English version appeared in 1777, although in that printing neither author nor publisher were named. The first attributed publication came in 1783, under the title, Essays on suicide and the immortality of the soul, ascribed to the late David Hume esq., never before published. With remarks, intended as an antidote to the poison contained in these performances. Full text of the 1777 printing from davidhume.org at this link.

Alphabet anatomic, auquel est contenue l'explication exacte des parties du corps humain: Réduites en tables selon l'ordre de dissection ordinaire, avec l'ostéologie et plusieurs observations particulières. Avec l'osteologie, & plusieurs observations particulieres.

Tournon, France: Claude Michel, & Guillaume Linoncier, 1594.

This innovative didactic work divided the study of anatomy into 91 tables, set in type, but without images. It was unusually popular, with eleven editions in the seventeenth century as well as translations into Latin and Dutch. Cabrol taught anatomy at the University of Montpellier, and became the first surgeon of Henry IV, who awarded him the title of royal demonstrator of anatomy.

A catalogue of the medical library, belonging to the Pennsylvania Hospital; exhibiting the names of authors and editors, in alphabetical order, and an arrangement of them under distinct heads. Also, a list of articles contained in the anatomical museum; and the rules of the museum and of the library.

Philadelphia: Printed for the Hospital, 1806.

Probably the first catalogue of a medical museum in the United States and also possibly the first catalogue of an institutional medical library. The library was open to users for a one time payment of $30, later raised to $40. Paid members received a copy of the printed library catalogue. Thmae lending rules were very strict, and limited to a maximum of two loaned books at a time. A folio could be borrowed for 4 weeks, quartos for 3 weeks, octavos and duodecimos for two weeks. The librarian required a hefty cash deposit for all books loaned, at least one-third more than the book's value, to be refunded only if books were returned "undefaced." Plus a fine of 12.5 cents per week was levied for late returns. After three months books were considered lost, and deposits forfeited. Certain books, that were apparently much in demand, would not be lent out of the hospital. Those are listed on p. vii. Digital facsimile from the Internet Archive at this link. Much expanded edition, 1818.

Code administratif des établissemens dangereux, insalubres ou incommodes.

Paris: Béchet jeune, 1832.

Trebuchet's work sets out the rules and regulations governing dangerous and unhealthy work environments (particularly those involving steam engines) and public nuisances. Pages 281-301 contain a table of businesses classed by their products, listing their specific offenses against public health and citing the laws governing their activities. As far as we have been able to determine, Trebuchet’s work was far more comprehensive than any individual book published in the English language at this time.

The moral and physical condition of the working classes employed in the cotton manufacture in Manchester. By James Phillips Kay.

London: James Ridgway, 1832.

"At first engaged in a Rochdale bank, in 1824 he [Kay-Shuttleworth] became a medical student at the University of Edinburgh. Settling in Manchester about 1827, he was instrumental in setting up the Manchester Statistical Society. He worked for the Ardwick and Ancoats Dispensary. While still known simply as Dr. James Kay, he wrote The Moral and Physical Condition of the Working Class Employed in the Cotton Manufacture in Manchester (1832), which was cited by Friedrich Engels in Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844. The experience which he thus gained of the conditions of the poor in the Lancashire factory districts, together with his interest in economic science, led to his appointment in 1835 as poor law commissioner in Norfolk and Suffolk and later in the London districts. In 1839 he was appointed first secretary of the committee formed by the Privy Council to administer the Government grant for the public education in Britain" (Wikipedia).
