Incunabula Short Title Catalogue (ISTC).

London: British Library, 1980.

https://data.cerl.org/istc/_search

The Incunabula Short Title Catalogue (ISTC) , an electronic bibliographic database maintained by the British Library, seeks to catalogue all known incunabula. The database lists books by individual editions, recording standard bibliographic details for each edition as well as providing a census of known copies, organized by location. It currently holds records of about 30,000 editions. Work on the ISTC began in 1980 under the leadership of the British Library's Lotte Hellinga. Frederick R. Goff's Incunabula in American Libraries (1973) was the first pre-existing catalog to be keyed into ISTC's database. Besides providing the catalog's first 12,900 entries, Goff's system for classifying information about incunables formed the basis for the structure of ISTC's records. Entries for all of the incunables in British Library and the Italian union catalog (IGI) were added next, followed by other national incunable catalogs.

"The database records nearly every item printed from movable type before 1501, but not material printed entirely from woodblocks or engraved plates. 30,518 editions are listed as of August 2016, including some 16th-century items previously assigned incorrectly to the 15th century.

"Information on each item includes authors, short titles, the language of the text, printer, place and date of printing, and format. Locations for copies have been confirmed by libraries all over the world. Many links are provided to online digital facsimiles, and also to major online catalogues of incunabula such as the Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke, the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Inkunabelkatalog and Bod-Inc online.

"A number of copies recorded in ISTC are now described in detail in the Material Evidence in Incunabula (MEI) database. In due course, links will be added from the copies recorded in ISTC to their descriptions in MEI" (https://data.cerl.org/istc/_search).

Women under the knife: A history of surgery.

London: Hutchinson Radius, 1991.

"In the nineteenth century, major developments in internal surgery were due to operations on ovaries. Women bore the brunt of surgical experimentation and also reaped its rewards. Their need was great, but so was their compliance. From the first operation in America in 1809, much suffering was relieved at the expense of prolonged surgery endured by both black slaves and prosperous whites. Later, in the Victorian era, many surgeons looked at certain types of behavior as reasons for mutilating operations. Such procedures as "spaying" and clitoridectomies were performed to "cure" hysteria and masturbation, as well as questionable interventionalist surgery in pregnancy and childbirth which still continue today" (publisher).

Handbuch der Samenkunde: physiologisch-statistische Untersuchungen über den wirthschaftlichen Gebrauchswerth der land- und forstwirthschaftlichen, sowie gärtnerischen Saatwaren.

Berlin: Wiegandt, Hempel & Parey, 1876.

In 1869 Nobbe set up the first seed control station, establishing the science of seed testing. He set out to improve seed quality in a sustainable way, through systematic inspection. In his Handbuch der Samenkunde he described the morphology and anatomy of seeds, the germination process, and the physical conditions required for germination, and methods for determining the value of the seeds. He called for the introduction of uniform examination methods. His experimental and control station for seeds in Tharandt, Germany became a model for the establishment of similar seed testing stations elsewhere.

Histoire physique de la mer.

Amsterdam: aux dépens de la Compagnie, 1725.

The first book devoted entirely to marine science and the first oceanographic study of a single region. Marsigli conducted an intensive investigation of the Gulf of Lyon in the south of France, taking soundings to obtain a profile of the sea floor, analyzing the relationship of the lands under and above water, studying the water's physical properties (temperature, density, color) and its motions (waves, curents tides), and describing the marine life of the region. He was the first to class corals as living beings rather than as inorganic mineral formations. Digital facsimile from Google Books at this link.

Marsigli published the essence of his marine biology observations in Brieve ristretto de saggio fisico interno alla storia del mare. Venice: Andrea Poletti, 1711. Digital facsimile of the 1711 work from Google Books at this link.

Remarks on the medical library in post-graduate work.

Brit. med. J., 2 (2544), 925-928, 1909.

In this speech given by Osler as President of the Medical Library Association Osler spoke first about the essential value for practicing physicians of institutional medical libraries run by professional librarians, and then discussed the value gained for each physician in collecting a personal library, depending on their personal and professional interests. He spoke of forming divisions within the Medical Library Association for professional librarians and another for "amateurs, like myself." Regarding his own approach to book collecting, Osler wrote,

"Personally, I collect on two principles--first, interest in an author, which is a good guide, as the book illustrates the biography, a principle which has the advantage of helping at least to keep you within the limits of purse and shelves, more the latter than the former. Take, for example, the two small groups of books I have placed in our exhibition, the one illustrating Servetus, the other Ulrich von Hutten. Valuable as they are from the standpoint of the professional bibliographer, this is nothing to the interest awakened in the men themselves, in their aspirations, their labour, and their tragic fates. For the amateur this personal note clothes the dry bones of bibliography and makes them live. And my other principle is this: a student of the history of medicine, I look out for books which have left their impress on it in some special way. If one is particular to examine carefully into the claims of a book before admitting it to the select company on your shelves, you here again cultivate a due regard for purse and space. For example, five or six books illustrate the whole subject of auscultation and percussion, only the masterpieces are chosen. I confess there may be a certain satisfaction in tracing out the biography of a book, but it is cold work unless you love the author.

"Judiciously cultivated, bibliography has many advantages as a pastime for the doctor; a little patient care, a very small expenditure of money, and a constant look-out for the books wanted are the essential requisites. Nor is there ever any difficulty in the choice of a subject--anything he may be interested in has its bibliographical side."

Lectures on physiology, zoology and the natural history of man.

London: J. Callow, 1819.

This work set forth Lawrence's then radical and remarkably advanced ideas concerning evolution and heredity. Arguing that theology and metaphysics had no place in science, Lawrence relied instead on empirical evidence in his examination of variation in animals and man, and the dissemination of variation through inheritance. On the question of cause, Lawrence disagreed with those who ascribed variation to external factors such as climate, and rejected the Lamarckian notion of the inheritance of acquired characteristics. His understanding of the mechanics of heredity was well ahead of his time: he stated that "offspring inherit only [their parents'] connate qualities and not any of the acquired qualities," and that the "signal diversities which constitute differences of race in animals . . . can only be explained by two principles . . . namely, the occasional production of an offspring with different characters from those of the parents, as a native or congenital variety; and the propagation of such varieties by generation" (p. 510). While Lawrence did not grasp the role that natural selection plays in the origination of new species, he recognized that "selections and exclusions," including geographical separation, were the means of change and adaptation in all animals, including humans. He noted that men as well as animals can be improved by selective breeding, and pointed out that sexual selection was responsible for enhancing the beauty of the aristocracy:

"The great and noble have generally had it more in their power than others to select the beauty of nations in marriage; and thus . . . they have distinguished their order, as much by elegant proportions of person, as by its prerogatives in society" (p. 454) Lawrence investigated the human races in detail, and insisted that the proper approach to this study was a zoological one, since the question of variation in mankind "cannot be settled from the Jewish Scriptures; nor from other historical records" (p. 243). The Natural History of Man came under fire from conservatives and clergy for its materialist approach to human life, and Lawrence was accused of atheism for having dared to challenge the relevance of Scripture to science. In 1822 the Court of Chancery ruled the Natural History blasphemous, thus revoking the work's copyright. Lawrence was forced to withdraw the book; however, it continued to be republished in unauthorized editiions. Darwin , who owned one of the unauthorized editions, cited Lawrence's book five times in The Descent of Man (1871)

Texts illustrating the history of medicine in the Library of the Surgeon General's Office, U.S. Army. Arranged in chronological order. Reprint from volume xvii, second series, Index-Catalogue of the Library of the Surgeon General's Office.

Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1912.

In 1912 Garrison was Assistant Librarian of the Surgeon General's Office, U.S. Army.  At the suggestion of Sir William Osler, Garrison prepared this classified listing of medical classics across the full range of the history of medicine. It occupied pp. 89-178 of a volume in the Index-Catalogue. The listing included very few annotations, and those published were exceedingly brief. This listing was the origin of the medical bibliography you are reading today.

Preliminary report on the pathogenicity of Legionella pneumophila for freshwater and soil amoebae.

J. clin. Path., 33, 1179-1183, 1980.

Discovery of the pathogenic relationship between amoebas and Legionella bacteria--a key step in understanding how this bacteria infects mankind. Legionella bacteria, along with amoeba, live in the organic contamination on the surfaces of water systems. Rowbotham demonstrated that Legionella grow inside another cell, specifically amoebas. Ordinarily amoeba eat bacteria and organic contamination, and in the process kill those bacteria.

It was later understood by others that when amoeba eat Legionella the bacteria become encapsulated, and continue to grow inside the amoeba until they are either released from the diseased amoeba into the water or a protective biofilm composed of mostly complex carbohydrate matrices containing the Legionella is released. In either form Legionella can be aerosolized and inhaled by a human host.

Once in the respiratory tract of humans, Legionella are ingested by macrophages and possess the unique ability to replicate inside the phagosome within the alveolar macrophages, which act in a protective manner for this specific bacteria. The key to the survival of Legionella within the macrophage, and thus their virulence, is the ability of Legionella  to prevent phagosome lysosome fusion and subsequent destruction.

Hospitals dispensaries and nursing. Papers and discussions in the International Congress of Charities, Correction and Philanthropy, Section III, Chicago, June 12th to 17th, 1893. Edited by John S. Billings and Henry M. Hurd.

Baltimore, MD: The Johns Hopkins University Press & London: The Scientific Press, Limited, 1894.

Includes almost 90 articles on all aspects of hospitals and nursing, by luminaries such Henry Burdett, Lavinia Dock, Cardinal Gibbons, Isabel Hampton, Henry Lyman, and Lewis Pilcher, among dozens of others. Florence Nightingale contributed a 20-page chapter on "Sick Nursing and Health Nursing." There are illustrations and floor plans of several hospitals, including 19 relating to the Johns Hopkins Hospital, which had opened just five years earlier. Billings had designed the hospital and Hurd was its superintendent. This book provides valuable insight into the dramatic changes in patient care taking place as hundreds of new hospitals were being built across the United States and in Europe. This was an age when hospitals were becoming a locus for active care, much of which would be delivered by nurses, rather than institutions that housed the poor and dying. The fifth chapter concerns "First Aid to the Injured", and begins with Ueber Blutlose Operationen by Friedrich von Esmarch.

Sporadic cretinism in America.

Am. J. med. Sci., 114, 377-401, 1897.

In 1893 Osler was among the first American physicians to use thyroid extract to treat myxedema or cretinism. He made a special study of the disease, corresponding with physicians across America to try to determine its prevalence. In the 1895 revision of his 1893 text he hailed the results of thyroid feeding as 'unparalleled by anything in the whole range of curative measures. Within six weeks a poor, feeble-minded, toad-like caricature of humanity may be restored to mental and bodily health.' In 1897 he delivered a major paper, 'Sporadic Cretinism in America,' to a Washington Congress of Physicians and Surgeons in which he used stunning before-and-after lantern slides [reproduced as half-tone photographs in the journal article] to show marvelous transformations and 'undreamt-of transfigurations,' and in addition to citing all the medical literature on the subject also referred to descriptions by Milton, Shakespeare, and an instance of 'the brave kiss of the daughter of Hippocrates'" (Bliss, William Osler: A Life in Medicine, 243-244).

On chorea and choreiform affections.

Philadelphia: F. Blakiston's Son & Co., 1894.

"One year after Charcot's death, Osler published On Chorea and Choreiform Affectations (1894), and in this pithy monograph, Osler offered a particularly useful evaluation of Charcot's neurological contributions. Whereas in most instances, Osler and Charcot agreed, Osler used data from the new fields of genetics and bacteriology to draw a dear distinction between two entities that Charcot had failed to separate, Sydenham's chorea and Huntington's disease. Osler's On Chorea uniquely captures the transition period between the 19th and 20th centuries. With clarity and insight, Osler documents Charcot's important contributions on disease description, differential diagnosis, and treatment. But with equal sobriety, he delineates Charcot's and his generation's limitation, as the 20th century opens toward the search for neurological causes and embraces new laboratory and experimental methodologies" Goetz, "William Osler: On chorea; On Charcot" (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10716267).

The cerebral palsies of children.

Philadelphia: P. Blakiston, Son & Co., 1889.

Osler's monograph on cerebral palsy helped define this condition. "Osler emphasized the diverse causes of childhood hemiplegia. Osler classified his patients with nonprogressive upper motor neuron dysfunction according to the distribution of their weakness (hemiplegia, diplegia, and paraplegia) and separated the children with congenital dysfunction from those whose weakness was acquired later in childhood. The monograph contains numerous case descriptions and emphasizes signs, symptoms, and etiology" (Ashwal, Founders of Child Neurology, p. 329; see also pp. 330-32).

Cancer of the stomach: A clinical study.

Philadelphia: P. Blakiston, Son & Co., 1900.

This was Osler's first collaboration with Thomas McCrae. Osler and McCrae reviewed 150 cases of cancer of the stomach seen at Johns Hopkins in an encyclopedic fashion. Surgery was often recommended for definitive diagnosis and early treatment. The close interaction between Osler and William Halsted at Hopkins was perhaps one of the earliest examples of multidisciplinary management, which has proved to be such a valuable approach in oncology. “To attain the best possible results the physician and surgeon must cooperate.”  Digital facsimile from Google Books at this link.

Modern medicine, its theory and practice. In original contributions by American and foreign authors. Edited by William Osler, assisted by Thomas McCrae. 7 vols.

Philadelphia: Lea Brothers & Co., 19071910.

Osler contributed six chapters to this massive system of medicine: "The Evolution of Internal Medicine", "Diseases of the Arteries,"  "Aneurism," "Raynaud's Disease," "Diffuse Scleroderma,"  "Angioneurotic Oedema." Osler contracted with Lea Brothers to edit a multivolume series of specialized articles by the best authorities he could sign up. The models were the Systems edited by William Pepper in the 1880s and Clifford Allbutt in the 1890s, to both of which Osler had contributed. Based upon the reputation of the editor--in this case Osler's justly deserved fame-- working physicians bought the set to supplement their textbooks and journals. For contributions Osler enlisted many of his old friends, most of whom were leading experts in their fields. The massive 7-volume set, which weighed 36 pounds, contained almost 7,000 pages. In addition to Osler and McCrae, the authors included Maude Abbott, George Adami, Lewellys Barker, George Blumer, Richard Cabot, Henry Christian, Rufus Cole, William Councilman, Harvey Cushing, George Dock, David Edsall, Thomas Futcher, Archibald E. Garrod, Gordon Holmes, Henry Koplik, Warfield Longcope, William MacCallum, Frederick Novy, Eugene Opie, Joseph Pratt, Humphrey Rolleston, Bernard Sachs, and Hugh Hampton Young, among others.

Les troubles de la marche dans l'hémiplégie organique étudiés à l'aide du cinématographe.

Semaine méd., 19, 225-228, 1899.

Between July 1898 and 1902 Romanian neurologist Gheorghe Marinescu (Georges Marinesco) made the world's first documentary films in his clinic in Bucharest. "Marinescu perfected the use of cinematography as a research method in neurosciences and published five articles based on cinematographic documents. He focused his studies particularly on organic gait disorders, locomotor ataxia, and hysteria. He adapted Charcot’s method of lining up several patients with the same disorder and showing them together to permit appreciation of archetypes and formes frustes. He decomposed the moving pictures into sequential tracings for publication. He documented treatment results with cases filmed before and after therapy.” (Barboi A.C., Goetz C.G. & Musetoiu R., "The origins of scientific cinematography and early medical applications," Historical Neurology, 2004, 62, 2082-2086). The films were (with titles in English translation):

"The walking troubles of organic hemiplegy (1898), The walking troubles of organic paraplegies (1899), A case of hysteric hemiplegy healed through hypnosis (1899), The walking troubles of progressive locomotion ataxy (1900) and Illnesses of the muscles (1901). All these short subjects have been preserved. The professor called his works "studies with the help of the cinematograph", and published the results, along with[drawings of] several consecutive frames, in issues of La Semaine Médicale magazine from Paris between 1899 and 1902.[3]  In 1924 Auguste Lumiere recognized the priority of professor Marinescu concerning the first science films: "I've seen your scientific reports about the usage of cinematograph in studies of nervous illnesses, when I was still receiving La Semaine Médicale, but back then I had other concerns, which left me no spare time to begin biological studies. I must say I forgot those works and I am thankful to you that you reminded them to me. Unfortunately, not many scientists have followed your way "(Wikipedia article on Gheorghe Marinescu, accessed 11-2019)


Also in 1899 Marinescu published "Un cas d'hémiplegie hystérique guéri par la suggestion hypnotique et étudié à l'aide de la chronophotographie," Semaine méd, 19, 421.  Marinescu illustrated his articles with still images taken from his documentary films.

Prepared for William Osler's seventieth birthday but not completed in time. Selections were approved by Osler, and the anthology was in publication when Osler died. Osler looked forward to the volume. Less than a month before he died, Osler wrote to Garrison, "Nothing yet from Milford - I suppose the manuscript is in process of purification! There are still many things in it I wish to see. The Press will follow your wishes as to format. I am sure the entire Volume will be most attractive.
