Remèdes contre les cours de ventre.

Paris, 1688.

"The remedy here treated of is ipecacuanha: although its antidysenteric virtues had previously been made known in 1649 by the writings of Piso and Marggraf [No. 2263.1] it was left to Helvetius, about forty years subsequently, to bring the remedy into public notice in France. This he did in a truly empirical [quack, charlatan] style, keeping his remedy a secret, placarding its virtues on the street walls, &c. So great was his success, the Dauphin of France having been cured by its means, that the French king purchased from Helvetius his secret for 1000 louis-d'or and made it public" (Waring, Bibliotheca therapeutica 1, 526).

The "Lindbergh operation", a complete very long distance tele-surgical gallbladder operation carried out by a team of French surgeons located in New York on a patient in Strasbourg, France using high-spreed telecommunications and Zeus surgical robot. The operation was performed successfully on September 7, 2001 by Professor Jacques Marescaux and his team from the IRCAD (Institute for Research into Cancer of the Digestive System). This was the first time that long distance elecommunications were fast enough to make this type of procedure possible. With Michel Gagner,  Francesco Rubino, Didier Mutter, Michel Vix, Steven E. Butner, & Michelle K. Smith.

The native population of the Americas in 1492. Edited by William M. Devevan.

Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin Press, 1977.

"The discovery of America was followed by possibly the greatest demographic disaster in the history of the world." Research by some scholars provides population estimates of the pre-contact Americas to be as high as 112 million in 1492, while others estimate the population to have been as low as eight million. In any case, the native population declined to less than six million by 1650. Revised second edition, 1992, with a new hemispheric estimate of 54 million.

An inquiry into the nature and origin of mental derangement: comprehending a concise system of the physiology and pathology of the human mind, and a history of the passions and their effects. 2 vols.

London: T. Cadell, Junior, and W. Davies, 1798.

In chapter 2 of vol. 1, pp. 254-90, “On Attention and its Diseases” Crichton described a mental state much like the inattentive subtype of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). He did not mention any symptoms of hyperactivity. It is possible that Crichton observed hyperactive or impulsive symptoms in his patients, but failed to recognize a correlation and decided not to specify them in this context. He began his chapter with a definition of attention. Digital facsimile of Vol. 1 from the Internet Archive at this link; of Vol. 2 at this link.
