1 OSLER, Sir William (1849-1919). An Alabama Student and other biographical essays.
Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1908. 1908 
8vo. [viii], 334 pp. Frontis. port. of John Bassett., illus., pls. Original red cloth, gilt-stamped spine title; covers a bit soiled, a hint of foxing, but an unusually tight copy and fresh throughout. Lacks tissue facing title. Very good +. "Osler wrote a number of biographical and historical papers, and the present one is an interesting and well-known example. This biographical sketch of Dr. John Y. Bassety, an almost unknown physician from Huntsville, Alabama, who died as a comparatively young man in 1851, was based on a small packet of letters and two articles which Dr. Bassett had written. Osler makes of this slight evidence a graceful address on 'a man of whom you have never heard, a humble student from a little town in Alabama.?" Heirs of Hippocrates, no. 2123. Contents: an Alabama Student; Thomas Dover, Physician and Buccaneer; John Keats, the Apothecary Poet; Oliver Wendell Holmes; John Locke as a Physician; Elisha Bartlett, a Rhode Island Philosopher; A Backwood Physiologist; The Influence of Louis on American Medicine; William Pepper; Alfred Still; Sir Thomas Browne; Fracastorius; Harvey and His Discovery.
