Fredric Hasselquists ... Iter Palæstinum, eller Resa til Heliga Landet, förrättad ifrån år 1749 til 1752, med beskrifningar, rön, anmärkningar, öfver de märkvärdigaste naturalier, på Hennes Kongl. Maj:ts befallning.

Stockholm: Trykt på L. Salvii kåstnad, 1757.

A disciple of Linnaeus, who complained about the lack of information regarding the natural history of Palestine, Hasselquist undertook a journey to that region provide further information. Having raised funds sufficient for the voyage, he reached Smyrna  towards the end of 1749. Hasselquist visited parts of Asia MinorEgyptCyprus and Palestine, making large natural history collections, but his constitution, naturally weak, gave way under the fatigues of travel, and he died near Smyrna on his way home. Published posthumously, his work achieved wide circulation. It was translated into English (1766) as Voyages and Travels in the Levant, in the Years 1749, 50, 51, 52: Containing observations in natural history, physick, agriculture and commerce: Particularly on the Holy Land and the natural history of the Scriptures. Digital facsimile of the Swedish edition from the Biodiversity Heritage Library at this link, of the English translation at this link.

Hortus Eystettensis: Sive, diligens et accurata omnium plantarum, florum, stirpium, ex variis orbis terrae partibus, singulari studio collectarum, quae in celeberrimis viridariis arcem episcopalem ibidem cingentibus, hoc tempore conspiciuntur, delineatio et aduiuum repræsentatio.

Nuremberg, 1613.

"The Hortus Eystettensis is itself a ‘paper museum’, a pictorial record of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time, that of the Prince Bishop of Eichstätt, Johann Conrad von Gemmingen. As part of a radical building programme at his seat, the Willibaldsburg castle overlooking the river Altmühl, the Prince Bishop created an extensive pleasure garden comprising eight separate gardens, each staffed with its own gardeners and each filled with flowers from a different country, imported through the international centres of Amsterdam, Antwerp and Brussels; the Prince Bishop boasted of having tulips in 500 colours. Painted halls and pleasure rooms further adorned the gardens. The great German botanist, Joachim Camerarius the Younger, advised the Prince Bishop on the garden's early design, and it may have been Camerarius's own manuscript florilegium (sold, Christie's, 20 May 1992, lot 151) which first suggested the creation of a pictorial record of the Eichstätt gardens to the Prince Bishop. After Camerarius's death, a Nuremberg apothecary, Basilius Besler, advised on the gardens, and it was he who undertook immortalising the garden in detailed and delicate engravings for the year-round enjoyment of his patron and for posterity in the Hortus Eystettensis. Flowers were drawn from life with flower boxes sent to Nuremberg so that artists there could work from fresh specimens, with the result that these plant portraits serve both as documentation and pleasure; here is a garden made perennial and evergreen. 

"The first edition was published in two issues: one with descriptive text printed on the verso of each plate and one without the text; in a few copies of the latter issue the text was printed on separate sheets and interleaved with the plates. As Barker observes, the issue without text backing the plates was undoubtedly intended to be coloured by hand; the versos were left blank, to ensure that no shadow of the printed text could detract from the botanical image. It is significant that many of the deluxe copies have no descriptive text at all. The first edition was limited to 300 copies, each of which carried a premium price. While uncoloured copies were available for 35 florins (rising to 48), coloured copies cost 500 florins. Herzog August of Braunschweig exclaimed in disbelief over the price of a coloured copy, but acquired one nonetheless, once he was assured that he had indeed understood the price correctly. 

"Despite much interest in the work and numerous documentary sources, much mystery still surrounds its publication. Neither the printer of the engraved plates nor of the letterpress text has been identified. Barker has tentatively suggested Paul Kauffmann as the printer of the text, with material acquired at Frankfurt through the offices of the printseller and publisher Balthasar Caimox expressly for printing the Hortus Eystettensis ('Who printed the text of the 'Hortus Eystettensis'?, The German Book, Studies presented to David L. Paisey, ed. J.L. Flood and W.A. Kelly, London: 1995, pp185-192). David Paisey has observed that if the watermark is read (as Briquet did) as a pine-cone within an armorial shield, then it may be the arms of Augsburg, which further points to Wolfgang Kilian's shop at Augsburg as responsible for the engravings (cf. Paisey's review of Barker's Hortus Eystettensis, in The Library, 6th series, vol. 17, pp.365-8). The original drawings used in preparing the plates for publication survive at the University of Erlangen, and 328 of the copperplates, long thought to have been melted at the Munich mint c.1820, were rediscovered in the Albertina Graphische Sammlung at Vienna in 1998" (http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/Lot/besler-basilius-1561-1629-hortus-eystettensis-nuremberg-1613-6012489-details.aspx,  accessed 9-2017).

Specimen medicum: Exhibens synopsin reptilium emendatam cum experimentis circa venena et antidota reptilium austriacorum.

Vienna: Joan. Thomae nob. de Trattnern, 1768.

"Laurenti is considered the auctor of the class Reptilia (reptiles) through his authorship of Specimen Medicum, Exhibens Synopsin Reptilium Emendatam cum Experimentis circa Venena (1768) on the poisonous function of reptiles and amphibians. This was an important book in herpetology, defining thirty genera of reptiles; Carl Linnaeus's 10th edition of Systema Naturae in 1758 defined only ten genera. Specimen Medicum contains a description of the blind salamander (amphibian): Proteus anguinus, purportedly collected from cave waters in Slovenia (or possibly western Croatia); this description represented one of the first published accounts of a cave animal in the western world, although the Proteus anguinus wasn't recognized as a cave animal at the time" (Wikipedia article on Josephus Nicolaus Laurenti, accessed 9-2017).

Rouen: David Geuffroy, 1612.

In 1601 the Rouen physician Duval was summoned by the Rouen parlement to examine Marie Le Marcis, who at the age of 20 had discovered she was a man and had determined to marry, only to be imprisoned for lesbianism and condemned to death. Upon inspection, Duval's medical colleagues concluded that Le Marcis was a woman, but Duval, driven both by curiosity and sympathy, conducted a more intimate examination which, while scandalizing his peers, revealed evidence of a male reproductive organ. Classified by Duval as a 'gynanthrope', Le Marcis was saved, took the name Marin, and lived henceforth as a man. Digital facsimile from BnF Gallica at this link.

Medicinische Jahrbücher, 3, 257-384., Vienna: Braumüller & Seidel, 1845.

The production of matches with white phosphorus in German-speaking countries started in 1833. Between 1839 and 1845 Lorinser saw nine cases of what he called "phosphorimus chronicus" in workers with white phosphorus, also known as yellow phosphorus, without proper safeguards. This disease, later called phosphorus necrosis of the jaw or "phossy jaw," was most commonly seen in workers in the match-stick industry in the 19th and early 20th century. Lorinser's long paper was the first published account of this disease.

Philadelphia: The Wilmington Dental Mfg. Co., 1887.

Angle's chapter, "The Angle system of regulation and retention of teeth," represented the first edition of what was later separately published as Angle's textbook on orthodontics with the same title. This chapter reappeared in the second edition of Haskell's manual (1890). The first separate edition of Angle's work was a revised and enlarged version of what originated as the chapter, issued in 1892. That separate edition was identified as the third edition.

Tomi secundi Prodromus.

Stockholm: E Typographia Regia, 17541764.

Linnaeus's study of the royal natural history collections was important because to a considerable extent they formed the basis for his knowledge of animals. The collections contain many type specimens for animals described by Linnaeus in the 10th and 12th editions of Systema naturae. The first volume of Linnaeus's catalogue was published in folio with numerous illustrations. As a result of the rapid deterioration of state finances after the Seven Years War, the second volume did not appear until 1764, and is a comparatively insignificant octavo with no illustrations.

Spectacular hand-colored plates."Insecten-Belustigung, appeared in 1740 and was devoted to the insects and other invertebrates like the sea anemones. His classification of the insects followed a natural system and he is regarded as one of the fathers of German entomology.[1] The fourth part is practically a monograph of the spider Araneus diadematus. The description of the animal is illustrated by six plates which show the differences in variation of the colouring of the species. They show also internal dissections. Rosenhof was interested in the production of silk but he confused the anus with the opening of silk-producing glands" (Wikipedia article on Rösel von Rosenhof accessed 9-2017).

A nomenclature of colors for naturalists, and compendium of useful knowledge for ornithologists.

Boston, MA: Little, Brown, 1886.

Ridgway proposed a simple classification system, doing away with many subjective and evocative names that were currently popular. The work illustrated 186 colors. Digital facsimile from the Biodiversity Heritage Library at this link.

In 1912 Ridgway greatly expanded the work under the title of Color standards and color nomenclature. "The work became a standard reference used by ornithologists for decades after Ridgway's death, as well as specialists in such wide-ranging fields as mycologyphilately, and food coloring.The book named 1,115 colors, illustrated with painted samples reproduced on 53 plates. Special care was taken to ensure consistency of color reproduction across the edition, as well as the prevention of fading. The color samples were printed as large sheets by A. Hoen & Co., cut into swatches one inch by one-and-one-half inches, and pasted into each bound book" (Wikipedia article on Robert Ridgway accessed 9-2017).

Examen de l'action de quelques végétaux sur la moelle épinière. Lu a l'Institut, le vingt-quatre avril 1809.

Bull. De la Soc. Philomat., I, 368-405., 1809.

In 1809 Magendie presented to the Académie des Sciences and to the Société Philomatique the results of his first experimental work, which he carried out in collaboration with the botanist and physician Alire Raffeneau-Delille. In a series of experiments on various animals the two investigators studied the toxic action of several botanic drugs, particularly upas, nux vomica, and St.-Ignatius's bean. These experiments marked the beginning of experimental pharmacology. They were the first experimental comparisons of the similar effects produced by drugs of different botanical origin.

Magendie believed that the toxic or medicinal action of natural drugs depends on the chemical substances they contain, and that it  be would to obtain these substances in the pure state. As early as 1809 he suspected the existence of strychnine, later isolated, in accord with his predictions, by Pierre Joseph Pelletier  in 1819. Moreover, in 1817, in collaboration with Pelletier, Magendie discovered emetine, the active principle of the root of Carapichea ipecacuanha or ipecac.

See also Magendie's follow-up paper: Mémoire sur les organes de l'absorption chez les mammifères. Lu à l'Institut, le sept Août 1809.

An entire, new, and original work; being a complete treatise upon spinae pedum; containing several important discoveries. Illustrated with copperplates exhibiting the different species of spinae.

Edinburgh: Printed by H. Inglis, for the Author & London: Longman, Rees, 1802.

The first original British work on podiatry, with several illustrations, one hand-colored. Disappointed at being refused a medical degree, Lion, a German Jewish émigré, wrote this book, taking the unusual step of having his name published in both English and Hebrew characters on the title page. “His odd and arrogant writing led to the book being generally derided by the lay and professional press. In fact it is first class and was based completely on his personal experiences and observations. Stripped of its padding it can be seen to be a great improvement on Laforest’s book…. The greatest praise we can give to Lion’s book is to say that every chiropodial writer since has used and borrowed from Upon Spinæ Pedum” (Dagnall, “The history of chiropodial literature,” Journal of the Society of Chiropodists, 20, 1965).

History of Medicine and Medical Humanities Research Portal.

Hamilton, Ontario: McMaster University, 2017.

http://medhumanities.mcmaster.ca/

"The History of Medicine and Medical Humanities Research Web Portal is designed to gather resources in medical humanities for students, scholars, physicians, and the general public for learning, exploration, and research.

We define “medical humanities” as an interdisciplinary field encompassing the humanities (literature, philosophy, ethics, history, religion), social science (anthropology, cultural studies, psychology, sociology) and the arts (theater, film, multimedia, visual arts), in dialogue with healthcare education and clinical practice.  Humanities thinking enriches healthcare education and practice, and medicine broadens our understanding of human being and the human condition.

Our mission is to bring together a worldwide collection of library, archival, museum, digital, and visual collections for the researcher to explore and use in the medical humanities.  Here you will find listings of grants and fellowships available to support individual research in history of medicine and medical humanities.  We also are a place for McMaster University colleagues and students interested in the field to network and share ideas and work. 

The portal will house a series of thematic modules in six areas, created by students, artists, historians, and colleagues.  Visit us again to see the work as it evolves: 

  • History of the Health Professions
  • Hospitals, Institutions, and Medical Education
  • The Public’s Health
  • Blood, Leeches, and Quacks
  • Arts, Literature, and Ethics
  • Technology and Science

The History of Medicine and Medical Humanities Research Portal was created in 2016 by the Jason A. Hannah Chair in the History of Medicine Ellen Amster, History Ph.D. candidate researchers Lauren Goldstein, Katarina Todic, and Nathan Coschi, and Bachelor of Health Sciences student Jinny Lee, with technical assistance from Todd Murray and the Computer Services Unit in the Faculty of Health Sciences. 

Funding for the project was provided by Associated Medical Services, the Dean’s Office of the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University, and the Michael DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University.

The portal is maintained by the Hannah Unit in the History of Medicine in the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University.

La médecine en France, hommes et doctrines depuis l'antiquité jusqu'à nos jours; avec introduction, notes et supplément par A[uguste] Le Pileur. Ouvrage publié sur la dernière édition de l'Histoire des français des divers états, couronnée deux fois par l'Académie française.

Paris: Bibliothéque Nouvelle, 1874.

One of the pioneer histories of medicine in France.

(1840; reprinted in 1841 under the title: Les Français pour la premiere fois dans l'histoire de France, ou poetique de l'histoire des divers etats).[1]  Monteil did not invent the history of civilization, but he was one of the first in France, and perhaps in Europe, to point out its extreme importance. He revised the third edition of his history himself (5 vols, 1848); a fourth appeared after his death with a preface by Jules Janin (5 vols, 1853)" (Wikipedia).

Data Refuge.

2016.

https://www.datarefuge.org/

"Data Refuge is a public and collaborative project designed to address concerns about federal climate and environmental data that is in danger of being lost[1]. In particular, the initiative addresses five main concerns:

  • What are the best ways to safeguard data?
  • How do federal agencies play a crucial role in collecting, managing, and distributing data?
  • How do government priorities impact data's accessibility?
  • Which projects and research fields depend on federal data?
  • And, Which data sets are of value to research and local communities, and why?[2].

"Data Refuge began as a grassroots organization in opposition to government data on climate change and the environment not being archived systemically[3]. Data Refuge's main goal is to collect and allocate data in multiple safe locations to create a sustainable way of archiving old and new data[4].

"Data Refuge was initiated in 2016 to protect federal climate and environmental data that is vulnerable under an administration that denies climate change[5]. The system aims to make public research-quality copies of federal climate and environmental data[6]. Data Refuge is supported by the National Geographic Foundation, private donors, Libraries+ Network, Preserving Electronic Governance Initiative (PEGI), the Union of Concerned Scientists (USC), and the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities (PPEH)[7].

Types of Data

Data Refuge collects public federal data on the climate and environment in the form of satellite imageryPDFs, and stories[8].

The data are stored in multiple trusted locations as they are less vulnerable if in only one location, and to ensure accessibility for researchers[9]. Through the Data Rescue events, Data Refuge has accumulated 4 terabytes of data, 30,000 URLs, and 800 participants[10].

Storytelling

Data Refuge collects stories on vulnerable federal climate and environmental data through: surveys, oral history, photo essays, maps, video shorts, and animations[11]. The stories are archived in a public bank that showcase how federal environmental data support health and safety in communities[12]. Data Stories are collected at Data Rescue events, which are partnered with universities, city and town halls, and advocacy groups[13].

Data stories are collected and used to emphasize the importance of Data Refuge, in how the data on climate change and the environment are being used by people in the United States and across the world for meaningful practices[14]" (Wikipedia article on Data Refuge, accessed 01-2018).

California Digital Library.

Oakland, CA: University of California, 1997.

http://www.cdlib.org

"The California Digital Library (CDL) was founded by the University of California in 1997 to take advantage of emerging technologies that were transforming the way digital information was being published and accessed. Since then, in collaboration with the ten University of California Libraries and other partners, CDL has assembled one of the world’s largest digital research libraries and changed the ways that faculty, students, and researchers discover and access information. CDL facilitates the licensing of online materials and develops shared services used throughout the UC system. Building on the foundations of the Melvyl Catalog (UC’s union catalog), CDL has developed one of the largest online library catalogs in the country and works in partnership with the UC campuses to bring the treasures of California's libraries, museums, and cultural heritage organizations to the world. CDL continues to explore how services such as digital curation, scholarly publishing, archiving and preservation support research throughout the information lifecycle" (Wikipedia, accessed 01-2018).
