Virchow, Rudolf Ludwig Karl, 1821-1902  
Die Cellularpathologie in ihrer Begründung auf physiologische und pathologische Gewebelehre...
Publisher: Berlin, A. Hirschwald, 1858.
xvi, 440 p., 144 illus.; 23 cm. Title continues: "Zwanzig Vorlesungen gehalten während der Monate Februar, März und April 1858 in Pathologischen Institute zu Berlin, von Rudolf Virchow." GM 2299; PMM 307c. First edition of Virchow's acclaimed treatise on cellular pathology. His discovery that every morbid structure consisted of cells derived from pre-existing cells revolutionized the concept that any developed tissue can be traced back only to a cell. Using improved microscopic and biochemical techniques, Virchow succeeded in reducing pathological processes to alterations and disturbances occurring at the cellular level. "He advanced the notion that the body is a co-operative state in which every cell is a citizen and in which disease is a civil war brought on by action of external forces" (Dibner, Heralds of Science 132). Printing and the Mind of Man 307c. Bound in contemporary half-cloth and marbled boards; minor wear to edges & corners; an excellent copy. Stock#OB576.
