"Trousseau, great clinician of the Hotel-Dieu, made important advances in the treatment of diphtheria, typhoid, scarlet fever and other conditions. In his book he emphasized the value of bedside observation. He supported the doctrine of the specific nature of disease and realized the significance of Pasteur's work on fermentation. English translation, 1868-72." - Garrison and Morton – 2221. "… Trousseau described the phenomenon in tetany which now bears his name. This is produced by pressure upon the arm sufficient to stop the circulation; the result is a sudden contraction of the fingers and hand into the so-called 'obstetrical position'." - Garrison and Morton – 4830. "As professor of clinical medicine and physician to the Hotel Dieu, Trousseau developed a well-deserved reputation as an exceptional lecturer and teacher and an advocate of bedside teaching through clinical demonstration. Clinique medicale contains the bulk of his most important writings and passed through two editions in Trousseau's lifetime and was printed in an eleventh French edition in 1913." – Heirs of Hippocrates 1635. PROVENANCE: JOHN RODMAN PAUL (1893-1971), studied at Princeton and took his medical degree from Johns Hopkins, became a noted virologist specializing in the study of Poliomyelitis, and its epidemiology. He was an influential member of the Polio Advisory Committee of the U.S. Public Health Service. He is a member of the Polio Hall of Fame. SIR JOHN STRUTHERS (1823-1899), Professor of Anatomy at Aberdeen, is most recognized for his work on the "vestigial ligament of Struthers" which Darwin referred to in his Descent of Man to argue a common ancestor of man and other primates. SIR JAMES YOUNG SIMPSON (1811-1870) was an obstetrician and an early and influential proponent of the use of chloroform. The first edition of 1861 was issued in 2 volumes. This second edition was expanded into three volumes, the third part [836 pp.] of which is not with this copy of the set. Garrison and Morton, 2221, 4830 [1861 ed.]; Heirs of Hippocrates 1635; Waller 9696.
