By Ralph H. Major. This text presents two hundred and eighty-seven selections from the original, epoch making accounts of authorities whose contributions and discoveries have furnished the foundation of our knowledge of clinical medicine. The articles included are the first known, one of the earliest, or one of the most interesting accounts of the disease in question. The clinical entities, methods of clinical diagnosis, and treatment techniques presented cover virtually the entire field of medicine. Sections are included on infectious diseases, diseases of metabolism, lead poisoning, circulatory system diseases, diseases of the blood, kidney diseases, respiratory diseases, and diseases of the digestive tract.

By Otto L. Bettmann, The Bettmann Archive, New York, New York. With a Foreword by Philip S. Hench Using pictures selected from the famous Bettmann Archive, this book illustrates and narrates the history of medicine from Egypt and the ancient East through the Nineteenth Century. The text graphically depicts the great physicians, the key inventions and the crucial discoveries of medicine. Each medical landmark is presented in a compact pictorial unit which delineates the technical perspective and relates the healing arts to their concurrent cultural movements. This book has been universally acclaimed by both the lay press and professional journals. Surgery, Gynecology and Obstetrics said, “Perhaps nowhere else can one obtain so clearly and quickly a broad grasp of medical history.” The New York Times concurred: “Certainly one of the most vivid presentations of the history of medicine.”
