New residents in the History of Medicine Room
Three additions to the History of Medicine book collection have just come back from cataloging, and now reside on the shelves in the HOM Room:
Edridge-Green, F. W. The Theory of Vision. S.l: s.n.], 1909.
This reprint of a Lancet article outlines the disputed physiological theories of the English ophthalmologist Frederick W. Edridge-Green.
Lewis, Thomas. The Soldier's Heart and the Effort Syndrome. New York: Hoeber, 1918.
This book builds on the library's strong holdings of one of the most important figures in the history of modern cardiology.
Masson, Raoul. L'amaurose hystérique: Avec figure hors texte d'hémispasme facial et de ptose hystérique. Neuchâtel: Attinger Frères, 1911.
Another work on opthalmology, this time an M.D. thesis on hysteric amaurosis: temporary blindness following emotional shock.
Several titles for the History of Dentistry Collection have also just been cataloged and are available for research.
