by PEMBERTON, Ralph (1877-1949); Robert B. OSGOOD (1873-1956).
New York:: Macmillan, 1934. Series: Macmillan Medical Monographs., 1934. 8vo. vii, , 403 pp. 59 illustrations, index; occasional foxing. Black blind-stamped cloth, dust-jacket; clipped jacket fragment pasted onto front endpapers. Very good. Pemberton was a pioneering figure in American rheumatoid arthritis. He earned his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania, took time away from his practice to study in Germany under the biochemist Franz Hofmeister (1850-1922). This book records his findings at the earlier stages of research into the field at the time after WWI. Benedek reports that Pemberton became the first American physician to limit his patients to only those suffering from rheumatic disease. He even established his own arthritis clinics in Philadelphia area hospitals. See: Benedek T.G., "Ralph Pemberton MD (1877-1949), pioneer rheumatologist." J Medical Biogr. 1996 May;4(2):79-81.
