Good.. FIRST EDITION, thus. Spanish translation of portions of Broussais’ works, Catéchisme de la médicine physiologique (Paris, 1824), and Examen de la doctrine médicale généralement adoptée, et des systèmes modernes de nosologie (Paris, 1816), the latter being among his most popular. According to Broussais, vital phenomena depended on external stimuli, especially heat, and produced chemical changes which in turn modified the normal functioning of the tissues. When these stimuli were moderate, the body remained healthy; when they were too weak or too strong, disease ensued. All diseases were local and were transmitted from one organ to another by sympathy or by means of the gastro-intestinal mucosa. All excessive stimuli produced hyperæmia and thus inflammation. The basis of all pathology was gastroenteritis. Broussais called his doctrine physiological medicine, in order to emphasize that disorders of function were more important than structural changes. Surgeon of the armies of France and professor of general pathology and therapeutics at Paris, Broussais was the most celebrated French practitioner of his day. His most common remedy was the application of leeches to the stomach or the head. Opposition by his students and medical colleagues finally put an end to his system of bleeding patients.

18 CULLEN, Guilielmus [William] (1710-1790). Synopsis nosologiae methodicae, exhibens clariss. virorum Sauvagesii, Linnaei, Vegelii, et Sagari, systemata nosologica.
Edinburgi et Londini: Guilielmus Creech..., 1780. 
Published: “Guilielmus Creech apud Thomam Cadell et Joannem Murray.” Two volumes. Third edition. 8vo. iv, 349; [4], xxxix. (41)-417 pp. Occasional light foxing. Contemporary full calf, gilt-stamped red leather spine labels, raised bands, gilt-stamped spine panels; joints lightly rubbed. Former owners’ signatures on title-pages (John Johnson), signature of James Houghtelings, 1802 and D. Colvin on ffep. and foot of spine. Very good. Third edition of Cullen’s great work on disease classification, Synopsis Nosologiae Methodicae, which contained his classification of diseases into four great types: Pyrexiae, or febrile diseases, as typhus fever; Neuroses, or nervous diseases, as epilepsy; Cachexiae, or diseases resulting from bad habit of body, as scurvy; and Locales, or local diseases, as cancer. “Cullen, a Scottish physician, was instrumental in founding the school of medicine at Glasgow and later became one of the leading figures at the Edinburgh Medical School. Active as a practitioner, Cullen was also an outstanding teacher and attracted students from home and abroad. Benjamin Rush, William Shippen, Jr., Philippe Pinel, and Joseph Black were among his many pupils who later achieved fame and success. Cullen was one of the first teachers to deliver his lectures in English instead of the traditional Latin. Although Cullen’s classification of disease was incomplete and unnatural, it was a definite improvement over the efforts of his predecessors who included Boerhaave, Sauvages, Linné, and Vogel. Cullen classified diseases by their symptoms, distinguishing four classes: pyrexias, neuroses, cachexias, and local diseases. He divided the classes into orders and further subdivided the orders into genera. For example, in the class of pyrexias he included the orders of fevers, inflammations, and hemorrhages. First published in 1769, his classification became extremely popular and remained in print until well into the nineteenth century.” [Heirs of Hippocrates].

Original full tree calf, gilt-stamped spines and red leather spine labels; edges worn, hinges starting with Vol. I front joint cracked, Vol. I lacking spine label. Good. “Cullen was the most conspicuous figure in the history of the Edinburgh Medical School during the 18th century. He was an inspiring teacher and was instrumental in founding the Glasgow Medical School in 1744. His clinical lectures were notable as being the first given in the vernacular instead of Latin (Garrison & Morton 76 [entry for The Works]). “Cullen, in his work, did much to advance the standard of medicine by the establishment of a methodical nosology, or an arrangement of diseases, as he expressed it, ‘according to their genera and species.’ His work in the domain of medicine may be compared to that of his distinguished contemporary, Linnaeus, in systematizing the study of botany and perfecting the classification of plants. He taught that ‘the prevention of diseases depended upon the knowledge of their remote causes,’ and that ‘the cure is chiefly and almost unavoidably founded in the knowledge of their proximate causes. This requires an acquaintance with the institutions of medicine—that is, the knowledge of the structure, action, and functions of the human body, of the several changes which it may undergo, and of the several powers by which it can be changed’” (Staples, p. 691).
