Versuche über Photographie mittelst der Röntgen’schen Strahlen.

Vienna, 1896.

"Eder was the director of an institute for graphic processes and the author of an early history of photography. With the photochemist Valenta, he produced a portfolio in January 1896, less than a month after Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen published his discovery of X-rays. Eder and Valenta’s volume... demonstrated the X-ray’s magical ability to reveal the hidden structure of living things. Human hands and feet, fish, frogs, a snake, a chameleon, a lizard, a rat, and a newborn rabbit are all presented in exquisitely printed photo-gravures, as are carved cameos and an assortment of natural materials. In an era when photography’s ability to accurately depict the visible world had become commonplace, this newfound capacity to record the invisible opened up a host of possibilities, both scientific and aesthetic" (https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/296322, accessed 05-2018).

New Haven, CT, 1934.

Gesell, who originated the Child Study Center at Yale University, was the founder of the study of child development in the United States. He is best known for his groundbreaking studies of normal child development: beginning in the 1920s, he used advanced cinematic and photographic techniques, including one-way mirrors, to record developmental milestones from infancy to adolescence. His most famous work is the Atlas of Infant Behavior, which contains 3200 photographs documenting the human infant's "visible manifestations of his maturing patterns of action and reaction. . . . Through systematic, pictorial charting, we trust that this Atlas will reveal the patterned organization of the moments and of the developmental sequences of infant behavior" (p. 11).

The mental growth of the pre-school child: A psychological outline of normal development from birth to the sixth year, including a system of development diagnosis.

New York: Macmillan, 1925.

"The Maturational Theory of child development was introduced in 1925[1] by Dr. Arnold Gesell, an American educator, pediatrician and clinical psychologist whose studies focused on "the course, the pattern and the rate of maturational growth in normal and exceptional children"(Gesell 1928).[2] Gesell carried out many observational studies during more than 50 years working at the Yale Clinic of Child Development, where he is credited as a founder. Gesell and his colleagues documented a set of behavioral norms that illustrate sequential & predictable patterns of growth and development. Gesell asserted that all children go through the same stages of development in the same sequence, although each child may move through these stages at their own rate [3] Gesell's Maturational Theory has influenced child-rearing and primary education methods since it was introduced.[4][5] (Wikipedia article on Gesell's Maturational Theory, accessed 05-2018). Digital facsimile from the Internet Archive at this link. Various films made by Gesell and/or showing him at work are available on YouTube.

Computerized mapping of disease and environmental data. A report of the Mapping of Disease (MOD) Project.

Washington, DC: Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, 1969.

This appears to be the earliest monograph on computerized disease mapping. At the time the research was conducted both computer graphics processing and data output in mainframe computers were inadequate for drawing all but very primitive maps so that many of the images in the book compare the very limited computer graphic output with traditional simple hand-drawn black & white maps. Much of the book describes the planning of appropriate data collection and data input methodologies for computer processing of epidemiological and environmental data. With Roger J. Cuffey, Jerome Monrenoff, Wayne L. Richmond, and Joseph D. H. Sidley.

Imagining illness: Public health and visual culture. Edited by David Serlin.

Minneapolis,MN: University of Minnesota Press, 2010.
"From seventeenth-century broadsides about the handling of dead bodies, printed during London's plague years, to YouTube videos about preventing the transmission of STDs, public health advocacy and education has always had a powerful visual component. Imagining Illness explores the diverse visual culture of public health, broadly defined, from the nineteenth century to the present.

"Contributors to this volume examine historical and contemporary visual practices-Chinese health fairs, documentary films produced by the World Health Organization, illness maps, fashions for nurses, and live surgery on the Internet-in order to delve into the political and epidemiological contexts underlying their creation and dissemination." (Publisher).

Medical authority and Englishwomen’s herbal texts, 1550–1650.

Burlington, VT: Ashgate, 2009.

"Through an analysis of twenty-four examples of female-owned herbals supplemented by case studies of the herbal references in the writings of Margaret Hoby, Grace Mildmay, Elizabeth Isham, and Isabella Whitney, Rebecca Laroche seeks to uncover the myriad ways that women engaged herbal texts along with the multiple contexts of their usage. She investigates the texts for their practical value, rather than as reference texts to help modern scholars understand allusions in early modern literary works.

"Her work is firmly within the revisionist critique of the concept of the medical marketplace and the tripartite division of medical authority into physicians, surgeons, and apothecaries, a model that excludes and subjugates women. Beginning with an examination of herbals written by men, she shows how these intentionally authoritative and comprehensive texts aimed to bring a more complete herbal knowledge to a projected audience of learned men, and to masculinize the herbal tradition. John Parkinson, for example, produced two books on herbals: one for women that demonstrated the delights to be found in plants and one for men that incorporated more intellectual debates and medicinal remedies. The published herbals, through their construction of the female reader, attempted to limit the medical activities of women, but the extensive information they supplied enabled gentlewomen in particular to acquire considerable medical knowledge" (https://muse.jhu.edu/article/522314, accessed 05-2018).

In Rafinesque's polemic style the title page includes the following statement:

Atlas of clinical medicine. 3 vols.

Edinburgh: T. & A. Constable, 18921896.

Published at the end of the 19th century, and employing the wide variety of illustration technologies then available, including color lithography, lithography, and photography, this work testifies to the breadth and depth of Bramwell’s medical knowledge; it illustrates, with extensive accompanying text for each image, a wide range of disorders including Addison’s disease, smallpox, cancer, hemiplegia, muscular dystrophy and the various stages of syphilis. Also included is a remarkable series of portraits of the insane, depicting patients suffering from “melancholia,” “melancholia with fear,” “melancholia with strong suicidal tendency,” “hilarious mania” and “mania.” As a contribution to the artistic depiction of disease this work is unsurpassed.

The Pelvis: Structure, gender and society.

Heidelberg & New York: Springer, 2014.

"This book offers a critical review of the pelvic sciences—past, present and future—from an anatomical and physiological perspective....The book starts with a “construction plan” of the pelvis and shows its structural consequences. The historical background of pelvic studies proceeds from medieval and early Italian models to the definitive understanding of the pelvic anatomy in the Seventeenth century. During these eras of pelvic research, concepts and approaches developed that are illustrated with examples from comparative anatomy and from mutations, also with regard to the biomechanics of pelvic structures. Perceptions of the pelvis as an important element in sexual arousal and mating conduct are discussed, as well as attitudes to circumcision, castration and other mutilations, in its anthropological, social context.

"The anatomy and physiology of the pelvic wall and its organs as well as the development of these pelvic organs are covered as a prerequisite to understanding, for example, the spread of pelvic carcinoma and male and female bladder muscle function. Connective pelvic tissue is examined in its reinforcing capacity for pelvic structures, but also as a “hiding place” for infections. Innervations and reflexes relayed through the pelvic nerves are discussed in order to explain incontinence, sphincter function and the control of smooth and striated muscles in the pelvis.

"Catheters and drugs acting on pelvic function are described, and a critical review of alternative clinical methods for treating pelvic dysfunctions is provided" (publisher).

De motu cordis adversaria analytica.

Montpellier: Apud Joannem Martel, 1698.

In this pioneering experimental study of coronary function, describing the first experimental tying of a coronary vessel, Chirac demonstrated that cardiac arrest occurs in response to coronary ligation. “A special position must be allocated to the French physician Pierre Chirac for having performed the first experimental ligation of a coronary artery in a dog. His book De motu cordis (1698) is an early attempt at experimental pathology with regard to the coronary vessels. Likewise there is much information on the fibers of the heart; some ideas are also expressed as to measuring the heart’s power . . . the blood volume, too, was estimated” (Leibowitz, The History of Coronary Heart Disease, p. 305).

Heart-lung transplantation: Successful therapy for patients with pulmonary vascular disease.

New Engl. J. Med., 306, 557-564, 1982.

First successful heart-lung transplant, performed on March 9, 1981, after nearly four years of testing on primates.

Abstract

"We report our initial experience with three patients who received heart-lung transplants. The primary immunosuppressive agent used was cyclosporin A, although conventional drugs were also administered. In the first patient, a 45-year-old woman with primary pulmonary hypertension, acute rejection of the transplant was diagnosed 10 and 25 days after surgery but was treated successfully; this patient still had normal exercise tolerance 10 months late. The second patient, a 30-year-old man, underwent transplantation for Eisenmenger's syndrome due to atrial and ventricular septal defects. His graft was not rejected, and his condition was markedly improved eight months after surgery. The third patient, a 29-year-old woman with transposition of the great vessels and associated defects, died four days postoperatively of renal, hepatic, and pulmonary complications. We attribute our success to experience with heart-lung transplantation in primates, to the use of cyclosporin A, and to the anatomic and physiologic advantages of combined heart-lung replacement. We hope that such transplants may ultimately provide an improved outlook for selected terminally ill patients with pulmonary vascular disease and certain other intractable cardiopulmonary disorders."

Democratic governance & health: Hospitals, Politics and health policy in New Zealand.

Dunedin, New Zealand: University of Otago Press, 2012.

"New Zealand is the only country in the world where elected health boards have long been a core feature of the health care system. These boards are conceptually important and aspirational for policy-makers and communities across the world grappling with issues of how to increase public participation in health care. This book traces the development of New Zealand’s elected health boards, from the 1930s to the present District Health Board structure, analyzing the history of democratic governance of health care, how boards have functioned, the politics surrounding their reform, and the idea of local democracy in health care decision-making. Based on extensive primary research, it assesses the capacity of elected boards to effectively govern the allocation of public expenditure on behalf of taxpayers and patients. Are there alternatives to the existing District Health Board model? How might the electoral model be improved upon? The concluding chapter provides some suggestions" (publisher).

Nutrition and physical degeneration: A comparison of primitive and modern diets and their effects.

New York: Paul B. Hoeber, 1939.

"The 1939 foreword to the book, written by physical anthropologist Earnest A. Hooton, lauded Price's work for confirming previous research that dental caries were less prevalent in "savages" and attempting to establish the etiology for this difference. In 1940, a review in the Canadian Medical Association Journal called the book "a masterpiece of research", comparing Price's impact on nutrition to that of Ivan Pavlov in digestion. In 1950, a review in the journal The Laryngoscope said that "Dr. Price might well be called "The Charles Darwin of Nutrition" while describing Price's documentation of his global travel and research in a book.[24] Other reviews were less sympathetic, with the Scientific Monthly noting some of his conclusions went "much farther than the observations warrant," criticizing Price's controversial conclusions about morality as "not justified by the evidence presented", and downplaying the significance of his dietary findings.[23] Likewise, a review in the Journal of the American Medical Association disagreed with the significance of this nutritional research, noting Price was "observant but not wholly unbiased", and that his approach was "evangelistic rather than scientific."[25]

"A 1981 editorial by William T. Jarvis published in Nutrition Today was more critical, identifying Price's work as a classic example of the "myth of the healthy savage," which holds that individuals who live in more technologically primitive conditions lead healthier lives than those who live in more modern societies. The review noted that Price's work was limited by a lack of quantitative analysis of the nutrition of the diets studied, and said he overlooked alternative explanations for his observations, such as malnutrition in primitive societies and overindulgence in the Western diet, rather than the diet itself, as a cause for poorer health. The review makes the assertion that Price had a preconceived positive notion about the health of primitive people, which led to data of questionable value and conclusions that ignored important problems known to afflict their societies, such as periodontal disease.[26] "(Wikipedia article on Weston Price, accessed 08-2018).
