Medicine at the Paris Hospital 1794-1848

£29.99

Product description

Medicine at the Paris Hospital 1794-1848

Erwin H Ackerknecht, MD

The Johns Hopkins Press, Baltimore, 1967.

Hardback; 155 x 235 mm; light and dark brown boards with titles in gold on spine and pictorial front cover; xiv & 242 pages; illustrations within text. No dust jacket.

The book is in good condition. The binding is sound. Very little wear to the boards but staining on the front cover. Book symbol on top page ends. Owner’s bookplate on front paste-down endpaper. Embossing on the front free endpaper. A little pencil sidelining, etc.

“During the period roughly from 1794 to 1848, the period covered by Dr. Ackerknecht's new book, France led the world in medical progress. The great figures of this era, who made the transition to modern medicine, were leaders in medical thought. Their names are familiar to most of us - Pinel and Bichat, Broussais, Corvisart, Laennec, Louis, Dupuytren. Lesser figures abound, familiar to scholars, although less well-known to the general medical public. The concern with the patient, with physical examination, with careful observation, quite transformed the practice of medicine. The detailed correlation of clinical and pathological findings provided a new and fruitful perspective. New concepts of disease, regarded as process, became quite influential.”
