8vp. xxxiv, 349 pp. Quarter modern dark calf over brown boards, marbled edges, gilt-stamped black leather spine label. Ink stamps of E. B. Krumbhaar and H. Russell Fisher on half-title. Fine. SCARCE. "Bichat conceived the idea of a science of anatomy and pathology based upon an accurate classification of the various tissues of the body, their distribution in the various organs and parts, and their particular susceptibilities to disease. He is regarded as the founder of modern histology and tissue pathology" (Garrison & Morton). "The foundation of histology and tissue pathology. Bichat generalized Pinel's theory, expressed in Nosographie Philosophique (1798) that pathology must be based upon the structure on the tissues of which bodily organs are composed, regardless of where in the body they occur. Bichat distinguished twenty-one different types of tissue, which he classified according to texture and to properties: extensibility, contractility, and the vital properties—organic contractility and sensibility ('insensible' or 'subliminal') on the one hand, and animal contractility and sensibility ('sensible' or 'conscious') on the other. Each tissue differed in its diseases, as diseases were nothing more than alterations in the tissue's vital properties. Claude Bernard said of Bichat that he 'decentralized life and incarnated it in the tissues' (Norman in Hall II, 129). Provenance: Edward Bell Krumbhaar (1882-1966) was an American scientist. Krumbhaar "was a distinguished pathologist and cardiac physician, as well as one of Philadelphia's leading historians of medicine. A founder of both the Section on Medical History of the College of Physicians and the American Association of the History of Medicine (AAHM), Krumbhaar also served as president of the College and of the AAHM." He was perhaps best known for his translation of Arturo Castiglioni's History of Medicine in 1941 (PASCL).

5 ISRAEL, Oskar (1854-1907). Practicum der Pathologischen Histologie. Leitfaden fUr Studirende und Arzte.
Berlin: August Hirschwald, 1889. 1889 
243 x 171 mm. 8vo. XIII, [1], 390 pp. 1 photographic plate, 133 figures, index. Quarter black leather, leather corners, marbled boards, raised bands, gilt spine; spine and extremities well worn, joint reinforced with kozo. Good. Written for students, this is the author's chief work on pathological histology. "This is an excellent work by a thoroughly competent observer. As implied by its name, it is intended as an introduction to the study of pathological histology and this intention is well carried out; but this does not prevent its containing a large amount of information of great value to the advanced student of this science. The explanations of the various most approved methods of hardening, cutting, and mounting microscopical preparations – the technique, as it is called – are concise and yet complete, while the abundant illustrations are beyond all praise. The work is a valuable addition to the literature of pathological histology." – F.P.H., for: The International Journal of the Medical Sciences, New Ser., volume 98, (1889), p. 602. ISRAEL, Oskar (1854-1907), "German physician; born at Stralsund Sept. 6, 1854; educated at the universities of Leipsic, Kiel, and Berlin (M.D. 1877). In 1878 he entered the pathological institute of his alma mater as assistant [to Virchow, to whom this book is dedicated]; in 1885 became first assistant; was admitted to the medical faculty in the same year as privat-docent; and in 1893 was appointed assistant professor. Israel has written many essays in the medical journals, especially on pathology. He is the author of: "Practicum der Pathologischen Histologie," Berlin, 1888 (2d ed., 1898; translated into French by Letulle and Critzman); "Internationaler Beitrag zur Wissenschaftlichen Medizin," ib. 1891; "Elemente der Pathologischen Diagnose," ib. 1898." – Isidore Singer, Frederick T. Haneman, Jewish Encyclopedia, 1906. See: Fischer I, 688; Pagel, Biographisches Lexikon hervorragender Arzte des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, Berlin-Vienna 1901, pp. 803-804.
