A treatise of the hypochondriack and hysterick passions.

London: Dryden Leach, 1722.

Probably the first psychiatric self-help book. Hunter and Macalpine call Mandeville's work "the first book on minor mental maladies `writ by way of Information to Patients' rather than `to teach other Practitioners' . . . [Mandeville] gave a graphic account of his own attack of melancholy when he developed the delusion that he had syphilis" (Hunter & Macalpine, p. 296).

It all depends on the dose: Poisons and medicines in European history. Edited by Ole Peter Grell, Andrew Cunningham, and Jon Arrizabalaga.

London & New York: Routledge, 2018.

"This is the first volume to take a broad historical sweep of the close relation between medicines and poisons in the Western tradition, and their interconnectedness. They are like two ends of a spectrum, for the same natural material can be medicine or poison, depending on the dose, and poisons can be transformed into medicines, while medicines can turn out to be poisons. The book looks at important moments in the history of the relationship between poisons and medicines in European history, from Roman times, with the Greek physician Galen, through the Renaissance and the maverick physician Paracelsus, to the present, when poisons are actively being turned into beneficial medicines" (publisher).

Leprosy in India. A report.

Office of the Superintendent of Government Printing, Calcutta, 1877.

 The first quantitative study of leprosy in India. Leprosy first appeared in India at least 2,000 years ago and continued to exist throughout the subcontinent over the succeeding centuries. Upon the establishment of the Indian Raj in 1858, the colonial authorities began to assume a more professional and scientific attitude towards public health. The severity and geographic distribution of leprosy in India was unknown until it was surveyed in the British Indian Census of 1872, the statistics of which prominently feature in this report. Includes two chromolithographed disease maps. Digital facsimile from the Internet Archive at this link.

Liber phsionomiae [and other works].

Venice: Jacobus de Fiviz(z)ano, 1477.

"Composed between 1209 and 1226, the first of the two primary texts discusses human generation — anatomy, physiology, astrology, sexual behavior, conception and the health of the fetus. The second part, the Physiognomy proper, goes head to toe, to determine a person’s character, vices and virtues by interpreting body parts. It draws on Aristotle and Rhazes and was translated into Spanish, Italian, French, German and Polish. The short tracts are on urology, dreams and the differences between genera and species of animals. This last flows from Michael’s translations of Averroës’ De animalibus, of parallel writings by Aristotle and of the Abbreviatio de animalibus of ibn Sina. This collection of texts influenced, i.a., Thos. Hill’s Contemplation of Mankinde (1571, etc.) and Aristotle’s Masterpiece" (McKittrick Rare Books, Medicine 1477-1755).

Poisons in relation to medical jurisprudence and medicine.

London, 1848.

Taylor was the leading English toxicologist and medical witness of his time, and his works were revised, edited, and translated into other languages. He "performed an invaluable service in codifying legal precedents and rulings and relevant anatomical and chemical data. He was known to a wider public by his appearance as a witness for the prosecution in celebrated murder trials, including those of Drory, and the poisoners Tawell, Palmer (who first exploited the possibilities offered by life insurance policies), Smethurst and Catherine Wilson. He was a commanding figure in the witness box, unbending and relentless" (munksroll.rclondon.uk) Extensively revised second edition 1859, further extensively revised edition 1875.

De honesta voluptate et valetudine.

Venice: Laurentius de Aquila and Sibylinus Umber, 1475.

The first two editions of De honesta voluptate et valetudine, the first printed work on cookery, diet, and health, by Italian humanist and papal librarian Bartholomeo Platina (Sacchi) appeared at roughly the same time. One was issued in Venice by Laurentius de Aquila and Sibylinus Umber on June 13, 1475. (ISTC No.: ip00762000). Another edition, which is sometimes called the first, might be slightly earlier or later. Neither the place, nor the printer, nor the date of printing is identified on that edition, but the Incunabula Short Title Catalogue No.: ip00761000 assigns the work to Ultrich Han of Rome between the years 1475 and 1479. 

Platina credited the origin of most of the recipes in this work to the professional chef Maestro Martino of Como.

The journal of a disappointed man. With an introduction by H. G. Wells.

London: Chatto & Windus, 1919.

Published under the pseudonym, Wilhelm Nero Pilate Barbellion. "Cummings' life changed forever when he was called to enlist in the British Army to fight in World War I in November 1915. He had consulted his doctor before taking the regulation medical prior to enlisting, and his doctor had given him a sealed, confidential letter to present to the medical officer at the recruitment centre.[3] Cummings did not know what was contained in the letter, but in the event it was not needed; the medical officer rejected Cummings as unfit for active duty after the most cursory of medical examinations.[3] Hurt, Cummings decided to open the letter on his way back home to see what had been inside, and was staggered to learn that his doctor had diagnosed him as suffering from the disease now known as multiple sclerosis, and that he almost certainly had less than five years to live....

"The strong early sales and the admiration received by The Journal of a Disappointed Man are largely forgotten by the wider reading public today, but the book has been frequently reprinted in paperback and is regarded as a classic of English literature.[6]It has been likened to the best work of other writers like Franz Kafka[7] and James Joyce.[8]

"It is also much admired by many sufferers of multiple sclerosis as a frank and eloquent portrayal of their struggle, and numerous MS societies and charities have recommended or even published copies of the book to encourage greater understanding among sufferers and non-sufferers alike" (Wikipedia article on W.N.P. Barbellion, accessed 3-2019).

Bibliography of fossil vertebrates: The indexed published literature of vertebrate paleontology, 1509-1993.

Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, 19401993.

http://vertpaleo.org/Publications/Bibliography-of-Fossil-Vertebrates.aspx

"The Bibliography of Fossil Vertebrates (BFV) aimed to index the world literature of vertebrate paleontology. Although no compilation can ever be complete, the BFV attempted to include every published scientific work that mentioned vertebrate fossils. In addition, it included works that dealt with closely related subjects such as evolutionary theory, geology, and the history of science, where relevant. Articles from newspapers and popular magazines were not included; nevertheless, the total number of references to books and published articles is in the neighborhood of 200,000.  The bibliographies indexed literature by taxonomy, geologic age, geography and subject areas, although the indexing changed over the years. The contents of those bibliographies have been converted to a database that can be searched using subject and taxonomic indexes, covering the literature from 1509-1993.
 

"The Bibliography of Fossil Vertebrates was compiled and published as a series of volumes, beginning with the 1928-1933 Camp, et al., volume published in 1940 (see below). However, this volume continued the work begun by O. P. Hay and his colleagues, who had published two previous retrospective volumes covering the literature of North American vertebrate paleontology, in 1902 and 1929. The Camp volumes were published by the Geological Society of America. In 1962, A. S. Romer, et al. (see below) compiled a massive bibliography to complement the Hay volumes, covering the non-North American published literature up to the point when the BFV series proper was begun.
 

"In the early 1970s, the BFV indexing was done under a cooperative agreement by the SVP, the American Geological Institute (AGI) and the University of California Museum of Paleontology, under the supervision of J. T. Gregory, and the references incorporated into AGI's GeoRef.
 

"Publication of the series resumed in 1983, with a compilation of the AGI references in the 1973-1977, 1978 and 1979 volumes. The 1980-1993 volumes were supported by the SVP and the University of California Museum of Paleontology. The increasing indexing of vertebrate paleontological literature in computerized indexes, and the increasing costs of indexing caused the SVP to cease publication of the BFV in 1996. A demonstration project of the BFV Online, created by John Damuth in 1994, proved successful, and the SVP supported its expansion. A grant from the Dinosaur Society permitted keystroking of the references from the older printed volumes, which have been added to the database."

Outlines of lectures on mental diseases.

Edinburgh: Printed for Daniel Lizars, 1825.

Of particular note for the greatly expanded second edition published in 1826. That edition contained 150 pages compared to 72 pages in the first edition. The second edition also contained 13 plates derived from images collected by Jean Esquirol, but published more than a decade before Esquirol published related images.

"In making a collection for this purpose, I have great pleasure in acknowledging my obligations to my friend Dr Esquirol of Paris, for his liberal permission to avail myself of his extensive collection of busts and drawings illustrative of the subjects ; and also to Dr. Sutherland, and to Mr. Wastell to London, for the facility afforded in selecting examples of different varieties, from a very large number of insane" (p.126).
 
"In March 1818, Morison travelled to Paris to meet Jean Étienne-Dominique Esquirol at the Salpêtrière. They corresponded for many years, Morison visited him on a further five occasions, and Esquirol subsequently sent students over to him. Morison visited a variety of Paris hospitals and was impressed with the French example that work could serve both as occupation and punishment. He noted the use of bath treatment with water to the head. He explored the theory of phrenology: he attended a lecture by Franz Joseph Gall and met with Johann Spurzheim, who told him he did not follow Esquirol’s classification of insanity."

Long-term control of HIV by CCR5 Delta32/Delta32 stem-cell transplantation.

New Engl. J. Med., 360, 692-698, 2009.

Gero Hütter and co-authors reported the first long-term remission or "cure" of HIV/AIDS in a human. The patient, Timothy Ray Brown also known as "The Berlin Patient" also suffered from myeloid leukemia and underwent stem-cell transplanation (bone marrow transplant) as treatment for his leukemia. The stem-cell donor lacked the CCR5 HIV virus receptor on his cells. When these cells were transplanted into the "The Berlin Patient" the donor's cells totally replaced the patient's bone marrow cells with cells that lacked the CCR5 HIV virus receptor and made the recipient "immune" to HIV. Thus "The Berlin Patient" was "cured" of both AIDS and leukemia. Digital edition of this paper from nejm.org at this link.

The first replication of cure of HIV/AIDS by this method was accomplished 10 years later in March 2019 by a team lead by Ravindra Gupta: "HIV-1 remission following CCR5Δ32/Δ32 haematopoietic stem-cell transplantation," Nature, 568, 244–248 (2019).

The early spread and epidemic ignition of HIV-1 in human populations.

Science, 346, 56-61, 2014.

Using the viral genome isolated from the archival serum of the "Kinshasa patient", Lemey, Faria and colleagues deduced that the prototype African viral strain first crossed from monkeys to humans about 1920 in the area of Kinshasa in Africa. This was about forty years before it was first detected in a stored human blood sample collected in 1959 from a hospitalized patient it in Kinshasa. Order of authorship in the original publication was Faria, Rambaut, Suchard...Lemey.

By genetic analysis of HIV, Worobey, Lemey and colleagues from the social sciences "cleared" Gaëtan Dugas, a Canadian air steward, who previously had been identified by name as Patient Zero--the source of the epidemic. Unfortunately Dugas was cleared of his responsibility only after his death. One lesson that researchers drew from this was not to identify patients by name in contexts like this.

A preliminary note on the susceptibility of goats to Malta fever.

Proc. roy. Soc. B., 76, No. B 510, 377, 378., 1905.

Zammit discovered that contaminated goat milk was the vector for transmission to humans of the Malta fever bacterium, Brucellosis melitensis. At the time goat milk was a primary source of milk in Malta and other parts of the world. Zammit's campaign to Pasteurize goat milk led to eradication of the disease in Malta and other parts of the world.

Social work in hospitals: A contribution to progressive medicine.

New York: Survey Associates, 1913.

Cannon, sister of Walter Bradford Cannon, established medical social work as an accepted subspecialty of social work first at Massachusetts General Hospital, and eventually throughout the U.S. Her career was closely associated with the development of medical social work that combined the skills of the nurse, the social worker, the social investigator, and the psychologist. Cannon began training medical social workers at Mass General in 1912. In Social Work in Hospitals (1913), she claimed that the diagnostic casework of the social worker was as important for treatment as was the clinical diagnosis of the doctor.

Baltimore, MD: Turnbull Brothers, 1876.

Stevenson was chief surgeon at the Confederate States Military Prison Hospitals in Andersonville, Georgia. The appendix lists the causes of death of 12,912 men.

"Andersonville Prison, established in Georgia early in 1864 to relieve the congestion in the capital and ease the supply problem, soon became the scene of sickness and death of an almost unbelievable scale. The inadequate facilities, the difficulties in procuring supplies and equipment, and the increasing poverty of the Confederacy were the principal factors that go to explain the frightful conditions that existed at Andersonville. Surgeon R. Randolph Stevenson, medical officer in charge, was appraised by one of his colleagues as a 'poor medical man & no surgeon, but an energetic officer in trying to provide for the wants and comforts of the sick under his charge--but without the means afforded him here to accomplish his desires" (Cunningham, Doctors in Gray, 103.)
