Ex library blind-stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington Solar Observatory. Fine. FIRST EDITION. In this microbiological study, Michael Weinberg isolated Cl. histolyticum. During the 1910s, meticulous investigations were carried out to discover true extra-cellular toxins. Weinberg found a true extra-cellular toxin in the form of Bacterium Welchii, the predominant organism of gas gangrene, and prepared antitoxins of therapeutic value. Weinberg's work on the organisms producing gas gangrene were among the most important studies of pathogenic and non-pathogenic anaerobes. See: Ford, Bacteriology, pp. 118, 144.

7 [BERNARD, Claude] Mirko Dražen GRMEK (1924-2000). Raisonnement Experimental et Recherches Toxicologiques chez Claude Bernard.
Genève and Paris: Droz, 1973. 1973 Signed
Series: Centre de recherches d'histoire et de philologie de la IVe section de l'École pratique des hautes études, V: Hautes études médiévales et modernes. Hautes études médiévales et modernes, 18. 8vo. xi, 474 pp. Index. Printed wrappers. INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO ROGER HAHN. Very good. Grmek was a Croatian and French historian of medicine, writer and scientist. He was one of the pioneers and founders of the history of medicine. He was devoted to medical history and research as his entire opus promotes the historical research of medical knowledge and practices by means of contemporary scientific methods, especially the study of the formation of ideas. He put forward the theory of pathocenosis, the coexistence of all diseases in a specific time, place and society. When he was quite young Grmek had the task of editing the papers of Claude Bernard, which led to his becoming a world authority for Bernard studies. . "Grmek followed the work of Claude Bernard, the founder of experimental medicine and initiator of physiology as an essential medical discipline, who believed that the notion of disease covers all the phenomena that weaken the defenses of the milieu interieur (inner space), i.e. the organism, and that disease largely depends on the environmental factors."
