    Description

    William Osler, M. D. The Principles and Practice of Medicine. Designed for the Use of Practitioners and Students of Medicine. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1892.

    First edition, second issue. Octavo. xvi, 1079 pages. [3, publisher's ads at the rear]. Eight page publisher's catalog at the rear dated June, 1892. Twenty-four charts and illustrations. Index.

    Publisher's green cloth covers, triple ruled in blind-stamp. Spine lettered and ruled in gilt. Covers and spine slightly rubbed, minor bumping to corners, some fraying to foot and joints of spine, some missing preliminary pages prior to the title page. Altogether a very good copy.

    Famed Canadian-born physician Sir William Osler, 1st Baronet (July 12, 1849 - December 29, 1919) has been called the Father of Modern Medicine. Osler published this work while a Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. The textbook was the most considerable medical publication during that period, and the significance of Osler's work is continually appreciated and built upon today.
