Handwritten notes on lectures about pathology, anatomy, therapy, and disease, given by Rudolf Virchow in Berlin in 1879-1880. Each of the three sections has its own title leaf and includes detailed drawings and figures, some in color. "The first section explains Virchow's general pathology; the second part contains notes on lectures about special pathology and anatomy; the third section treats diseased blood vessels. At the end of the nineteenth century, Virchow gave a series of lectures entitled 'General Pathology and Therapy' and 'general Pathological Anatony.' The manuscript appears to be notes taken by a student who attended those lectures, given when Virchow was chair of Pathological Anatomy at the Friedrich-Wilhelms University. ... This notebook explains in Virchow's own words the main principles of his doctrine that laid the foundation of modern scientific medicine. Stating that the job of pathology starts where physiology stops, he explains the importance of food processes and digestion, and treats necrosis, atrophy, hypertrophy, thrombosis, embolism, and components of tumor pathology, among other topics."--Antiquarian bookseller's description.
