The estimation of acetanilide and its metabolic products, aniline, N-acetyl p-aminophenol and p-aminophenol (free and total conjugated) in biological fluids and tissues.

J. Pharmacol. Exp. Ther., 94, 22–28, 1948.

Brodie and Axelrod confirmed that paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen, was the major metabolite of acetanilide in human blood, and established that it was efficacious an analgesic. Unlike its precursors, paracetamol does not cause methemoglobinemia in humans. See also their follow-up papers:  "The fate of acetanilide in man" (PDF). J. Pharmacol. Exp. Ther., 94 (1948) 29–38., and Flinn, Frederick B., Brodie, B. B., "The effect on the pain threshold of N-acetyl p-aminophenol, a product derved in the body from acetanilide", J. Pharmacol. Exp.

Experimental researches in cerebral physiology and pathology.

The West Riding Lunatic Asylum Medical Reports 3, 30-96, London, 1873.

Using a variety of experimental animals, Ferrier demonstrated that various neurologic functions were controlled by separate parts of the cerebrum and that damage or loss of that part created an irrevocable and particular deficit. He showed that these areas were much more discrete as one ascended the phylogenetic scale and that, accordingly, effects of brain damage in rabbits, dogs and cats etc. could not be compared to those in monkeys, apes and human beings. Clarke & O’Malley, The Human Brain and Spinal Cord, pp. 513-14. This paper became the basis of Ferrier's book, The Functions of the Brain (1876).

Orthotopic cardiac prosthesis for two-staged cardiac replacement.

Am. J. Cardiol., Nov 24 (5)723-30, 1969.

The first total artificial heart implant, performed by Colley using a device developed by Liotta on April 4, 1969. The device, known as the Liotta-Cooley artificial heart, was implanted in a 47-year-old patient with severe heart failure. The artificial heart supported the patient for 64 hours until a donor heart was found for transplantation. This experience showed that patients could be "bridged" to transplantation.

A manual of military surgery: or, hints on the emergencies of field, camp and hospital practice.

Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1861.

Digital facsimile of the second edition (1862) from the Hathi Trust at this link. Notably in 1862 this small work written for Union surgeons was reprinted in Richmond, Virginia for the use of Confederate surgeons. The Richmond publisher J. W. Randolph, published an informative note on the source of this edition on the verso of the title page. It reads:

"In view of the great want of some convenient work on Military Surgery, we present a valuable little Treatise recently published by Dr. S.D. Gross, of Philadelphia. The book trade between the two sections of the continent having been interrupted, it has rendered it impossible for Dr. Gs publishers to furnish the work to the Southern Public. We avail ourselves of the copy recently published in the Southern Medical and Surgical Journal, Augusta, Geo."

Botanic manuscript of Jane Colden, 1724-1766. Edited by H.W. Rickett and E.C. Hall.

New York: Garden Club of Orange and Dutchess Counties , 1963.

Colden was the first distinguished American woman botanist. Her work is known only from an untitled manuscript by her on the flora of the lower Hudson River Valley of New York that is preserved in the Natural History Museum (London), portions of which are here reproduced in facsimile. The manuscript's title page was added by Ernst Gottfried Baldiner in 1801. The manuscript includes 340 ink drawings by Colden, and in some cases includes folklore suggesting medicinal uses for particular plants. Colden died in childbirth at the age of 42.

Vergleichende Untersuchungen der Keimung, Entfaltung und Fruchtbildung höherer Kryptogamen (Moose, Farrn, Equisetaceen, Rhizocarpeen und Lycopodiaceen) und der Samenbildung der Coniferen.

Leipzig: Friedrich Hofmeister, 1851.

Hofmeister described the process of fertilization in non-flowering plants as an alternation of sexual and asexual generations in the mosses, ferns, horsetails and liverworts. He showed that asexual generation propagated by means of spores, altemating with one in which spermatozoids unite with ova. Hofmeister's researches led him to the revolutionary conclusion that all green land plants undergo a regular alternation of dissimilar generations in their complete life histories. Digital facsimile from the Internet Archive at this link.

Hofmeister revised and expanded his work, and in its expanded form it was translated into English by Frederick Currey as On the germination, development, and fructification of the higher cryptogamia, and on the fructification of the coniferae (London: Ray Society, 1862).

Illustrations of the birds of California, Texas, Oregon, British and Russian America. Intended to contain descriptions and figures of North American birds not given by former American authors, and a general synopsis of North American ornithology. 1853 to 1855.

Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1856.

Originally issued in ten parts from 1853 to 1855. Cassin ran an engraving and lithographing firm in Philadelphia, which produced illustrations for government and scientific publications. He pursued ornithology as an amateur, devoting his spare time as unpaid curator of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, which was developing the largest bird specimen collection then in existence. He arranged and catalogued 26,000 specimens, and published regular reports of the results of his research. In this work Cassin described species discovered since the appearance of Audubon's Birds of America. Digital facsimile of the 1862 printing from the Biodiversity Heritage Library at this link.

Figura ductus cuiusdam cum multiplicibus suis ramulis noviter in pancreate in diversis corporibus humanis observati.

Padua, 1642.

Wirsung, assistant to the celebrated German anatomist Johann Vesling, discovered the excretory duct of the pancreas named for him in 1642. To announce his discovery, Wirsung chose the extremely unusual method of publishing a single-sheet engraving with explanatory notes. On August 23, 1643, a year after publishing his plate, Wirsung was assassinated by a doctor from Dalmatia. Very few copies of Wirsung's print survived. Erik Waller owned a copy now at the University of Upsalla, listed as item 10362 in the catalogue of Waller's library, and illustrated as plate 48 in that catalogue. A different version of the plate was issued in Amsterdam in 1644 with the title Pancreatis, novique in eo ductus seu vasis a Io. Georgio Wirsung observati. . . . The creator(s) of the 1644 plate, while familiar with Wirsung's discovery, may never have seen the original 1642 plate as the images are quite different. Wirsung's plate focuses on the ductus pancreaticus, and is fairly simple and schematic, while the Amsterdam plate shows the pancreas in its entirety, and is much more artistic in its rendition. The Wikipedia reproduces an image of the 1644 plate at this link.

Surgical operations performed during insensibility, produced by the inhalation of sulphuric ether.

Lancet, 1, 5-8, 16-17, 1847.

The first use of ether as an anesthetic in Britain (for a dental procedure) was conducted in Boott's house at 24 Gower Street on 19 December 1846. Boott issued the second announcement of ether anesthesia published in Britain in The Lancet on January 2, 1847. Jacob Bigelow, the father of Henry Jacob Bigelow, wrote on 28 November to Francis Boott of telling him of Morton's discovery  and enclosing the text of his son's communication as it had appeared in the Boston Daily Advertiser. Boott forwarded Jacob Bigelow's letter and H. J. Bigelow's paper to The Lancet which published them both in their number for 2 January 1847. Appended to the reprint was a letter from Robert Liston to Dr. Boott dated 21 December 1846 saying that on that day he had successfully used ether during an amputation at the knee, thus recording the first surgical operation under ether anesthesia in Europe.  Digital facsimile from the John Snow Archive and Research Companion at this link.
