William Osler was a 19th-century Canadian physician, known as one of the most important and outstanding Canadian doctors. Also known as the ‘father of modern medicine,’ Osler published one of the world’s most recognizable medical books – ‘The Principles and Practice of Medicine’. Shortly after its release, it became the standard text for medical students and physicians worldwide. Subsequent editions curiously continued to recommend bloodletting well into the 20th-century.

 

According to ‘Heirs of Hippocrates’,

“This book gained and maintained a place in English, American, and continental practice…[with] a unique place among scientific books.”

 

Also included with this volume is a 1915 pamphlet from the United States Public Health Service, detailing the research of The Treatment and Prevention of Pellagra. Written by Joseph Goldberger, the “unsung hero of American clinical epidemiology”, the pamphlet was produced shortly after Goldberger had concluded that the disease was caused by nutritional deficiencies. The study was extremely important for its time, as more than 3 million Americans were affected by pellagra, with more than 100,000 deaths, between 1906 and 1940.  Conrad Elvehjem would not pinpoint the exact cause, a deficiency in niacin, until a study in 1937.
