Reprinted from Journal of morphology, 29, No. 1 (1908).

19001908.

Part 3, with 365 pages and illustrations was the main work of this series. Mall began the introduction to the third part as follows:

"The present communication is the outcome of a study of 163 pathological human embryos which I have collected during the past fifteen years. The first contribution which I made to this subject included a report of 53, and the second of 20 of these embryos. These two studies are rather anatomical in nature and do not consider the causes which produce pathological embryos, nor their relation to ordinary human monsters. A more careful study of my specimens, which have more than doubled in number during the past five years, establishes beyond doubt (1) the identity of pathological embryos and small monsters, that is many of them would have developed in real monsters if they had not been aborted, and (2) that all of them are developed from normal ova due to external influences, — in man to a condition which I shall term faulty implantation."

The etiology of yellow fever. A preliminary note.

Philad. med. J., 6, 790-96, 1900.

First definite proof that the organism causing yellow fever is transmitted to man by the mosquito Aëdes aegypti. During the period spent by these workers in the investigation of the disease in Cuba Lazear and Carroll subjected themselves to the bite of infectious mosquitoes to test the theory that mosquitos were carriers of yellow fever. Lazear died from the yellow fever infection in 1900, but Carroll recovered and completed the research. He later died of the yellow fever infection in 1907. Reproduced in part in Major, Classic descriptions of disease, 3rd ed., 1945, p. 131. Further account in J. Hyg. (Camb.), 1902, 2, 101-19.  Digital facsimile from Google Books at this link.

Cancer of the stomach: A clinical study.

Philadelphia: P. Blakiston, Son & Co., 1900.

This was Osler's first collaboration with Thomas McCrae. Osler and McCrae reviewed 150 cases of cancer of the stomach seen at Johns Hopkins in an encyclopedic fashion. Surgery was often recommended for definitive diagnosis and early treatment. The close interaction between Osler and William Halsted at Hopkins was perhaps one of the earliest examples of multidisciplinary management, which has proved to be such a valuable approach in oncology. “To attain the best possible results the physician and surgeon must cooperate.”  Digital facsimile from Google Books at this link.

The etiology of yellow fever: An additional note.

J. Amer. med. Assoc., 36, 431-440, 1901.

"The article describes a series of experiments conducted to explore how yellow fever is propagated from individual to individual and how the contagium is spread within households. The study was conducted in an experimental sanitary station in Cuba, where exposures and movements could be completely controlled. During the investigation, 12 nonimmune persons underwent different exposures, including mosquitoes that had fed on yellow fever patients, blood from infected patients, and fomites belonging to infected patients.

"The study provided the following observations: (1) Aedes aegypti mosquitoes transferred the disease from an infected individual to a nonimmune person; (2) at least 12 days were needed for the extrinsic incubation period in the mosquito before it could transmit the infection; (3) yellow fever can be transferred to a nonimmune person from the blood of an infected individual taken during the first 2 days of the illness; (4) a filterable agent was responsible for infection; (5) the incubation period for humans ranged between 2 and 6 days; and (6) yellow fever cannot be transmitted by fomites nor spread in a house without the presence of mosquitoes. The most significant conclusion was that the 'spread of yellow fever can be most effectually controlled by measures directed to the destruction of mosquitoes' " (http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/182442, accessed 05-2017).

Les cavernes ornées de dessins. La grotte d’Altamira, Espagne. “Mea culpa” d’un sceptique.

l'Anthropologie, 13, 348-354, 1902.

Cartailhac’s famous retraction of his opposition to the concept of paleolithic cave wall art, published over 20 years after Sanz de Sautuola’s discovery of the Altamira cave paintings in northern Spain. Cartailhac, one of the most influential prehistorians of the time, had ridiculed Sanz de Sautuola’s announcement of the Altamira paintings at the 1880 Prehistorical Conference in Lisbon; his refusal to accept the paintings’ authenticity—or even to visit the Altamira site—retarded the study of cave art for two decades. The case against paleolithic cave art was weakened by the subsequent discovery of several examples in France, including La Mouthe, and in 1902 Cartailhac finally agreed to go to Altamira to see the cave’s paintings for himself. Convinced by this visit, Cartailhac became one of the most fervent and enthusiastic scholars of cave art, publishing several works on the subject.

Some experimental and clinical observations concerning states of increased intracranial tension.

Am. J. med. Sci., 124, 375-400, 1902.

According to Theodore Janeway (No. 11572), Cushing was the first to recommend routine measurement of blood pressure during surgery using the Riva Rocci sphygmomanometer.(See No. 2804). Cushing visited Riva Rocci at Pavia in 1901, made drawings, and was given an example of the device. Along with George Crile, Cushing played a major role in popularizing Riva Rocci's mercury sphygmomanometer. In this paper Cushing wrote, "For the proper estimation of gradual alterations in arterial pressure in clinical cases reliance should not be placed alone on the palpating finger any more than the hand should be depended upon for the determination of a patient's temperature."

Recent researches concerning the etiology, propagation, and prevention of yellow fever, by the United States Army Commission.

J. Hyg. (Lond.), 2, 101-119, 1902.

By 1902 Reed knew that the infectious agent of yellow fever was smaller than bacteria, though he did not specifically call it a virus. "In 1898, the passage of an animal pathogen through a Chamberland filter was reported; it is now named foot‐and‐mouth disease virus. In Cuba, serum from a yellow‐fever case was diluted and passed through a Berkefeld filter (of diatomaceous earth and impervious to bacteria). When inoculated into a non‐immune individual it promptly induced an attack of yellow fever. The word ‘virus’ was not used for this case, but because it might be designated as ultra‐microscopic, the infectious agent of yellow fever was compared with that of foot‐and‐mouth disease of cattle" (Clements & Harbach, "History of the discovery of the mode transmission of yellow fever virus," J. Vector Ecol. , 42 (2017) 208-222).

The yellow fever virus discovered by Reed was the first virus discovered that caused human disease.

A report of a case of successful suturing of the heart, and table of thirty-seven other cases of suturing by different operations with various terminations, and the conclusions drawn.

Medical Record, 62, 846-848, 1902.

Hill reported his successful suturing of a knife wound in the left ventricle. His patient, a thirteen-year-old boy recovered. This was the first successful suture of the heart performed in America. Hill argued "that any operation which reduces the mortality from 90 to about 63 per cent is entitled to a permanent place in surgery, and that every wound of the heart should be operated upon immediately."

"In the early morning hours of September 15, 1902, Hill was summoned by two local Montgomery physicians who were attempting to treat Henry Myrick, a 13-year-old African American youth, who had been the victim of a stab wound to the heart the previous afternoon. Six hours passed before the first physicians had been called, and another two hours passed before Hill arrived at the boy's home. Myrick's wound had been bleeding continuously, and although he was still conscious, his pulse was fading. Hill convinced the family to let him operate on the wound.
Although he was widely regarded as an authority on heart wounds, Hill had not actually operated on a living heart. Hill moved Myrick to a table and by lantern light began the procedure, assisted by his brother and a fourth physician who had arrived to administer chloroform to the patient. Hill opened the youth's chest and discovered a great deal of internal bleeding within the pericardium, the protective tissue surrounding the heart. To relieve pressure on the injured organ, Hill opened the pericardial sack to drain the blood. He then stitched the stab wound, which was in the left ventricle of Myrick's heart, with catgut thread. The entire procedure lasted 45 minutes. Myrick survived and within a few weeks had recovered from his injuries...."(R. Foster, http://www.encyclopediaofalabama.org/article/h-2949).

Westaby & Bosher, Landmarks in cardiac surgery, 36-37, 316-318 reprinted this paper declaring, "It caused a sensation. 'Lived with Stabbed Heart' reported the headline of an article in the New York Sun, which described Hill's stitching of 13-year-old Henry Myrick's three-eight-inch stab wound in the left ventricle with a single catgut suture on the kitchen table of a shack, lit by two kerosene lamps."

The surgical treatment of sterility due to obstruction at the epididymis. Together with a study of the morphology of human spermatozoa.

Univ. Penn. med. Bull., 15, 2-15, 1902.

Martin and colleagues reported on the study of 192 sterile couples. Martin pointed out "that 33 (17%) of the men in this group were azoospermic and two more could produce no ejaculate at all. From an examination of the semen from these patients he came to several very important conclusions. He pointed out that in order to determine the potential fertility of a male patient, the semen must be fresh, because if a sample of semen is allowed to age, sperm movement is lost. However, he also noted that sperm motility could be preserved by cooling the semen sample. He also found that repeated samples of semen are necessary as some patients may produce an azoospermic sample and then at a later date can be found to have semen containing low numbers of sperm. Having examined large numbers of samples of human semen, he made detailed drawings of human spermatozoa and noted their polymorphism, particularly in relation to the variations in both size and shape of the sperm heads. He was perhaps the first person to describe twin-headed sperm and to describe sperm with two tails. He also noted the presence of cytoplasmic droplets on spermatozoa but could not explain their nature or their aetiology. He described psammoma bodies in semen and surmised that they came from the prostate. A further fundamental observation made by Edward Martin during surgery on these patients was that intratesticular sperm are immotile.

"In this paper, he [Martin] described the first epididymo-vasostomy. Initially, he carried out epididymo-vasostomies on three dogs after tying the vas proximally and then attempted this procedure on a patient with obstructive azoospermia" (Anne. M. Jequier, "Edward Martin (1859-1938). The founding father of modern clinical andrology," Int. J. Androl., 14 (1991), 1-10).

Reports to the evolution committee of the Royal Society. Reports I-V. 1902-1909.

London: The Royal Society, 19021910.

In 1908 Archibald Garrod delivered the Croonian Lectures at the Royal College of Physicians in London on inborn errors of metabolism. In his studies of the rare disease alkaptonuria, which affects about one in one million people, Garrod noted that over twenty-five percent of the recorded cases were the offspring of first cousins. In 1902 he consulted the pioneer English geneticist William Bateson about whether the disease might be hereditary. In a footnote to the first of his "Reports to the Evolution Committee of the Royal Society" (1902), pp. 133-134 Bateson noted Garrod's work and suggested that since first cousins are often similar genetically, Garrod's data might be best understood if one assumed alkaptonuria to be caused by a recessive gene:

"In illustration of such a phenomenon we way perhaps venture to refer to the extraordinarily interesting evidence lately collected by Garrod regarding the rare condition known as "Alkaptonuria." In such persons the substance, alkapton, forms a regular constituent of the urine, giving it a deep brown colour which becomes black on exposure. The condition is exceedingly rare, and, though met with in several members of the same families, has only once been known to be directly transmitted front parent to offspring. Recently, however, Garrod has a noticed that no fewer than five families containing alkaptonuric members, more than a quarter of the recorded cases, are the offspring of unions of first cousins. In only two other families is the parentage known, one of these being the case in which the father was alkaptonuric. In the other case the parents were not related. Now there may be other accounts possible, but we note that the mating of first cousins gives exactly the conditions most likely to enable a rare and usually recessive character to show itself. If the bearer of such a gamete mates with individuals not bearing it, the character would hardly ever be seen; but first cousins will frequently be bearers of similar gametes, which may in such unions meet each other, and thus lead to the manifestation of the peculiar recessive characters in the zygote. See A. E. Garrod, 'Trans. Med. Chir. Soc.,' 1899, p. 367, and 'Lancet,' November 30, 1901."

Bateson's statement in this footnote published in 1902 was the first proof of Mendelian heredity in humans, and the foundation of human biochemical genetics.

The five reports in this series were separately published between 1902 and 1902. In 1910 they were collected under a general title page and issued together.

Sterility from obstruction at the epididymis cured by operative means.

N. Y. med. J., 73, 697-, 1903.

The patient described in this paper gave a past history of epididymitis and also of gonococcal urethritis which was known at that time as ‘gleet’ and which had resulted in a urethral stricture. The epididymo-vasostomy was carried out unilaterally as a side-to-side procedure on the left side only. The epididymo-vasal fistula was constructed using silver wire. Six weeks later, sperm were noted in a semen sample and 281 days later, the patient’s wife delivered a full term infant!

L'Étude expérimentale de l'intelligence.

Paris: C. Reinwald & Schleicher Frères, 1903.

Once education was made mandatory for all French children from ages six to fourteen, it became necessary to determine which children might be considered retarded. To do so the question arose concerning what test should be given to children that might possibly have learning disabilities to determine whethery they should be placed in a special class. Binet attempted to find a way to establish the differences between normal and abnormal intelligence and to measure such differences. Experimenting with his own daughters, Binet gave them problems to solve but also demanded an explanation for the solution they provided for his questions. These experiments resulted in new ideas concerning human reasoning and its relationship to images. Digital facsimile from Google Books at this link.

The code of Hammurabi, King of Babylon about 2000 BCE. Autographed text, transliteration, translation, glossary, index of subjects, lists of proper names, signs, numerals, corrections, and erasures, with map, frontispiece, and photograph of text by Robert Francis Harper.

Chicago, IL: Callaghan & Co, 1904.

The Code of Hammurabi was found among the cuneiform tablets of the library of Ashurbanipal. It is now in the Louvre. It was first published in Scheil, "Textes élamites-sémitiques. Deuxième série: accompagné de 20 planches hors texte," Mémoires de la Délégation en Perse, Paris, 1902, 4, 4-162. The Code mentions the fees payable to a physician following successful treatment; these varied according to the station of the patient. Similarly, the punishment for the failure of an operation is set out. At least this shows that in Babylon 4,000 years ago the medical profession had advanced far enough in public esteem to warrant the payment of adequate fees.

Aequanimitas with other addresses to medical students, nurses and practitioners of medicine.

Philadelphia: F. Blakiston's Son & Co., 1904.

A compilation of 19 addresses given by Osler in various settings. These include many of Osler's most famous essays concerning the philosophical and moral foundations of medicine. Osler wrote, "we are here not to get all we can out of life for ourselves, but to try to make the lives of others happier... The practice of medicine is an art, not a trade; a calling, not a business; a calling in which your heart will be exercised equally with your head. Often the best part of your work will have nothing to do with potions and powders, but with the exercise of and influence of the strong upon the weak, of the righteous upon the wicked, of the wise upon the foolish."

To the second edition of 1906 Osler added three valedictory addresses that he delivered before his departure from America to assume the Regius Professorship of Medicine at Oxford, bringing the total number of essays in the volume to 22. One of the added essays is Osler's controversial "Fixed Period" address that elicited much criticism in response to his comments on "chloroform at 60." 

Between 1932 and 1953 the Eli Lilly Pharmaceutical Company distributed some 150,000 copies of the third edition of this work  to graduating medical students, increasing significantly the long term impact of Osler's philosophical and moral writings.

Report on trypanosomes, trypanosomiasis, and sleeping sickness, being an experimental investigation into their pathology and treatment.

London: Williams & Norgate, 1905.

Thomas and Breinl discovered that arsanilic acid, was more potent in the treatment of laboratory trypanosomiasis than arsenic in inorganic form. As a crystalline powder it was introduced medically as Atoxyl. Thomas and Breinl recommended high doses, given continously for human typanosomiasis. The above is Memoir XVI of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. The drug was soon found to be prohbitively toxic for human use and taken off the market.

The Hearst Medical Papyrus: Hieratic text in 17 facsimile plates in collotype with introduction and vocabulary by George A. Reisner. University of California Publications. Egyptian Archaeology, Volume 1.

Leipzig: J. C. Hinrichs, 1905.

The papyrus has been dated to the 18th Dynasty of Egypt, around the time of pharaoh Tuthmosis III. The text is believed to have been composed earlier, during the Middle Kingdom, around 2000 BCE. The papyrus is so unusually well preserved that questions have persisted regarding its authenticity.

"The Hearst Papyrus contains 260 paragraphs on 18 columns[2] of medical prescriptions, written in hieratic Egyptian writing. The topics range from "a tooth which falls out" to "remedy for treatment of the lung",[1]but concentrates on treatments for problems dealing with the urinary system, blood, hair, and bites[2] (by human beings, pigs, and hippopotamuses[1]). One incantation deals with the 'Canaanite illness', "when the body is coal-black with charcoal spots", probably tularemia, one of the 'plagues' which helped to unseat the Hyksos.[3] "(Wikipedia article on the Hearst Papyrus accessed 01-2017).

A preliminary note on the susceptibility of goats to Malta fever.

Proc. roy. Soc. B., 76, No. B 510, 377, 378., 1905.

Zammit discovered that contaminated goat milk was the vector for transmission to humans of the Malta fever bacterium, Brucellosis melitensis. At the time goat milk was a primary source of milk in Malta and other parts of the world. Zammit's campaign to Pasteurize goat milk led to eradication of the disease in Malta and other parts of the world.

Uniterminal and biterminal venous transplantations.

"The possibility of transforming a vein into an artery, from a functional point of view, naturally arouses the idea of substituting veins for arteries when the latter are rendered useless by some pathological processes." This paper anticipated the use of vein grafts to restore circulation in damaged arteries to the heart, the so-called coronary artery bypass graft.

The jungle.

New York: The Jungle Publishing Co., 1906.

Sinclair wrote The jungle to portray the harsh conditions and exploited lives of immigrants in the United States in Chicago and other industrialized cities. His primary purpose in describing the meat industry and its working conditions was to advance socialism in the United States. However, most readers were more concerned with several passages exposing health violations and unsanitary practices in the American meat packing industry during the early 20th century, which greatly contributed to a public outcry which led to reforms including the Meat Inspection Act. His account of the social and human abuses of the yards, where packers used "everything about the hog except the squeal," led to major reforms in the industry and, along with UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, is one of the few American novels to have a lasting impact on the way we live our lives. Indeed, when this book was published Jack London said, "What Uncle Tom's Cabin did for black slaves, The Jungle has a large chance to do for the white slaves of today." President Theodore Roosevelt was so shocked by what he read that he made sure a clean meat act, the Pure Food and Drug Bill, was signed into law, popularizing at the time the rather obscure term "muckraker." Later in life, Sinclair said of his masterpiece: "I aimed at the public's heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach."

The fragments of Empedocles. Translated into English verse by William Ellergy Leonard.

Monist, 17, 451-74, 1907.

Empedocles was a Greek philosopher, statesman, physician and reformer. His poem on Nature originally ran to 5,000 lines, of which only 400 are now left. He believed in four ultimate elements—fire, air, water and earth, these being brought into union and parted by the two powers, love and hate.

A hitherto undescribed disease characterized anatomically by deposits of fat and fatty acids in the intestinal and mesenteric lymphatic tissues.

“Whipple’s disease”. Whipple suggested the name lipodystrophia intestinalis (intestinal lipodystrophy) for this condition because there were abnormal lipid deposits in the small intestine wall. In figure 9 of his paper Whipple reproduced a photomicrograph clearly showing the "bacillary bodies" that were later seen by Yardley (1961). Whipple captioned the photograph, "section of gland stained by the Levaditi method. Vacuole (a) containing rod shaped organism?" In his text Whipple called these "very peculiar structures." He wrote, "The majority of these structures closely resemble in form the tubercle bacillus. They are very sharply cotoured and appear as jet black rods, sometimes bent but more often straight or only slightly curved. Some show a slight welling of one end and others a beaded appearance....Whether this is the active agent in this peculiar pathological complex cannot be determined from the study of this single case, but its distirubtion in the glands is very suggestive."

Das Werden der Welten. Mit Unterstützung des Verfassers aus dem schwedischen übersetzt von L. Bamberger.

Leipzig: Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft, 1907.

In this work Arrhenius became the first to predict the possibility of man-made global warming. His prediction that significant global warming would take ~3000 years to develop is now recognized as a substantial underestimate due in part to his failure to foresee the rapid increases in fossil fuel use during the twentieth century.

Is Mars habitable?

London: Macmillan, 1907.

"His treatment of Mars in this book [Man's Place in the Universe] was brief, and in 1907, Wallace returned to the subject with a book Is Mars Habitable? to criticise the claims made by Percival Lowell that there were Martian canals built by intelligent beings. Wallace did months of research, consulted various experts, and produced his own scientific analysis of the Martian climate and atmospheric conditions.[130] Among other things, Wallace pointed out that spectroscopic analysis had shown no signs of water vapour in the Martian atmosphere, that Lowell's analysis of Mars's climate was seriously flawed and badly overestimated the surface temperature, and that low atmospheric pressure would make liquid water, let alone a planet-girding irrigation system, impossible.[131] Richard Milner comments: "It was the brilliant and eccentric evolutionist Alfred Russel Wallace ... who effectively debunked Lowell's illusionary network of Martian canals."[132]Wallace originally became interested in the topic because his anthropocentric philosophy inclined him to believe that man would likely be unique in the universe[133] (Wikpedia article on Alfred Russel Wallace, accessed 02-2017).

Modern medicine, its theory and practice. In original contributions by American and foreign authors. Edited by William Osler, assisted by Thomas McCrae. 7 vols.

Philadelphia: Lea Brothers & Co., 19071910.

Osler contributed six chapters to this massive system of medicine: "The Evolution of Internal Medicine", "Diseases of the Arteries,"  "Aneurism," "Raynaud's Disease," "Diffuse Scleroderma,"  "Angioneurotic Oedema." Osler contracted with Lea Brothers to edit a multivolume series of specialized articles by the best authorities he could sign up. The models were the Systems edited by William Pepper in the 1880s and Clifford Allbutt in the 1890s, to both of which Osler had contributed. Based upon the reputation of the editor--in this case Osler's justly deserved fame-- working physicians bought the set to supplement their textbooks and journals. For contributions Osler enlisted many of his old friends, most of whom were leading experts in their fields. The massive 7-volume set, which weighed 36 pounds, contained almost 7,000 pages. In addition to Osler and McCrae, the authors included Maude Abbott, George Adami, Lewellys Barker, George Blumer, Richard Cabot, Henry Christian, Rufus Cole, William Councilman, Harvey Cushing, George Dock, David Edsall, Thomas Futcher, Archibald E. Garrod, Gordon Holmes, Henry Koplik, Warfield Longcope, William MacCallum, Frederick Novy, Eugene Opie, Joseph Pratt, Humphrey Rolleston, Bernard Sachs, and Hugh Hampton Young, among others.
