Catalogue of botanical books in the collection of Rachel McMasters Hunt. 2 vols. in 3.

Pittsburgh, PA: Hunt Botanical Library, 19581961.

Ostensibly the catalogue of Rachel McMasters Hunt's private collection, which she donated to the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation at Carnegie Mellon University, this is much more than a finely printed, luxurious bibliographical catalogue because it contains several lengthy authoritative essays. Contents include:

Vol. 1. Printed Books 1477-1700. With several manuscripts of the 12, 15th, 16th & 17th centuries. Compiled by Jane Quinby. The Introduction, through p. lxxxiv, consists of four parts:

1. Botany from 840 to 1700 by Harold William Rickets

2. Historical aspects of early botanical books by John Farquhar Fulton.

3. The dawn-time of modern husbandy by Paul Bigelow Sears.

4. The illustration of early botanical books by Wilfred Blunt.

Vol. 2., Part 1. Introduction to printed books 1701-1800. Compiled by Allan Stevenson. This volume of 244pp. consists of essays and methodology only:

1. Eighteenth-century botanical printed in color by Gordon Dunthorne

2. Gardening books of the eighteenth century by John Scott Lennox Gilmour

3. Botanical gardens and botanical literature in the eighteenth century by William Thomas Stearn

4. A bibliographical method for the description of botanical books by Allan Stevenson.

Vol. 2, Part 2. Printed books 1701-1800 compiled by Allan Stevenson.

In his introductory essay, "Medical aspects of early botanical books," John Fulton wrote, "The use of plants for their medicinal qualities long antedated any kind of description of the plants themselves." He then noted some of the most significant printed herbals included in the Hunt collection, and continued "The contributions to herbal literature grew apace in the sixteenth century, and there are many which had a particular contribution to make to the history of medicine. The names of Brunfels, Fuchs, Bock, Brunschwig, Valerius Cordus, Gesner, Caspar Bauhin, Ruellius, Rosslein, and Dodoens come quickly to mind." Discussing the significance of the collection described in great detail in this catalogue, Fulton concluded appropriately, relative to scholarship available at the time, "As one reviews the literature concerned with the herbals, it is evident that primary critical attention has been almost without exception been directed either to the botanical or the bibliographical features of the books and that as yet no one has had the courage to study all the texts from the earliest times for their medical content and to assess their historical value...."

The medical profession in the United Kingdom.

Dublin: Fannin & Co. & London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1888.

(1200pp.) This is the greatly expanded edition of the book first published with the same title nine years earlier. "His most important and voluminous writings were the two Carmichael Prize essays of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, the one published in 1879 and the other in 1888. The subject of both was same, namely 'The Medical Profession,' and they dealt with the history of the profession from the earliest times until the date of publication. They form perhaps the only complete account of the history, development, character, and laws relating to the medical profession in existence, and the essay bearing the date 1887 is characterized by the most extreme historical and verbal accuracy" (The Lancet, May 15, 1887, pp. 1380-1381.)

Mechanisms of synaptic transmission: Bridging the gaps (1890-1990).

Oxford University Press, 2001.

"Synaptic transmission plays a central role in the nervous system as the mechanism that allows for chemical and electrical communication between cells and thus connects discrete elements into the functioning whole. This is a broad account of anatomical, biochemical, embryological, medical, pathological, pharmacological, and physiological studies on synaptic transmission during the hundred years beginning in 1890. During this century, the process of synaptic transmission came to be recognized not only as the most fundamental neurophysiological process, but also as a seat of pathological changes, and as the predominant site of action for drugs used to treat a wide range of psychiatric and neurological disorders" (Publisher).

Moving questions: A history of membrane transport and bioenergetics.

New York: Oxford University Press, 1997.

"This book describes half a century of progress in two mainstream areas of biological research: membrane transport, initially a focus of physiologists, and oxidative phosphorylation, initially a focus of biochemists. Robinson shows how the development of new explanatory models had unexpectedly merged these inquiries into a new field, bioenergetics. In the late 1930s, explanations for the asymmetric distribution of ions between cells and their environments invoked absolute impermeabilities of the cell's surrounding membranes. But new experiments contradicted that idea and demonstrated that forming the transmembrane distributions required metabolic energy, implying the participation of active transport "pumps." Subsequent studies identified, isolated, and characterized these pumps as enzymes coupling ionic transport to the consumption of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an "energy-rich" molecule serving as a cellular energy store. In the late 1930s oxidative phosphylation, the process of coupling ATP synthesis to oxidative metabolism, was identified. The explanatory model emerging in the next decades, however, did not follow the enzymatic precedents of known metabolic phosphorylations but rather embodied the principle that metabolic oxidations drive active transport pumps to create transmembrane distribution of ions, with these ionic asymmetries then driving ATP synthesis. It was discovered that ATP consumption can form ionic asymmetries; ionic asymmetries can drive ATP formation; and ionic asymmetries-like ATP-can also power other cellular functions" (Publisher).

Scottish army surgeon John Monro (1670-1740) initiated a series of events that lead to the establishment of a dynasty which, beginning with his son Alexander Monro, changed the course of medical teaching and learning. Three men (father, son and grandson), each called Alexander Monro (Primus, Secundus and Tertius), consecutively held the Chair of Anatomy at the University of Edinburgh for 126 years. The Medical Library of the University of Otago houses the Monro Collection of books and manuscripts, used and written by the Monros during their careers as students, and later, professors at the University of Edinburgh.

The biology of human starvation. 2 vols.

Minneapolis,MN: University of Minnesota Press, 1950.

"To gain insight into the physiology of starvation, in 1944 [Ancel] Keys carried out a starvation study with 36 conscientious objectors as test subjects in the Minnesota Starvation Experiment. At the time, conscientious objectors were being placed in virtual concentration camps, with a few functioning like the Civilian Public Service, so that recruiting them would prove easier than seeking out volunteers in the general population.[14][17] The original pool of 400 responders was reduced to 36 selectees, of whom 32 would go on to complete the study.[23] The main focus of the study was threefold: set a metabolic baseline for three months, study the physical and mental effects of starvation on the volunteers for six months, and then study the physical and mental effects of different refeeding protocols on them for three months.[14] The participants would first be placed on the three month baseline diet of 3200 calories after which their calories were reduced to 1800 calories/day while expending 3000 calories in activities such as walking. The final three months were a refeeding period where the volunteers were divided into four groups, each receiving a different caloric intake.[14]

The war came to an end before the final results of the study could be published, but Keys sent his findings to various international relief agencies throughout Europe[3]and, by 1950, he completed publication of his two-volume 1385-page Biology of Human Starvation."
