About This Item

Berlin:: Bey Heinrich August Rottmann, 1798., 1798. 8vo. XVI, 504 pp. Original pale blue paper over boards, tan leather gilt-stamped spine label; extremities mended with kozo. Near fine. Revised and expanded edition of: Bemerkungen uber die naturlichen und kunstlichen Blattern zu Weimar im Jahr 1788, originally published in Leipzig, 1789. Dedicated to Carl August. Hufeland adds to this edition a whole new chapter on metastases and post-inoculation diseases. In the first chapter the author gives his remarks on the recent epidemic of Weimar in 1788 and inoculation. A second section deals with the advantages of inoculation. The third, and final, section discusses nutrition and children and their diseases. / Hufeland, a fierce proponent of inoculation against smallpox and other childhood ailments, here updates his work, but at the same year that Jenner was published - and without mention herein, thus Jenner must have been issued second. ?Christoph Wilhelm Friedrich von Hufeland 1762-1836 was the Counsellor of State and the Physician in Ordinary to the King of Prussia, and Professor in the University of Berlin, and he was a contemporary and personal friend of Samuel Hahnemann. Hufeland became a staunch advocate of homeopathy, and he was responsible for publishing Samuel Hahnemann’s articles on homeopathy, the very first time the word homeopathy was ever used. Hufeland was the personal physician of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller. Hufeland has been described as the 'greatest German clinician of the late 18th century?.? [Sue Young Histories]. ?Hufeland, one of the most successful and respected physicians of his time, graduated in medicine from Gottingen in 1783. He initially succeeded his father and grandfather as court physician at Weimar where he came to know as patients and friends Goethe, Schiller, and their brilliant circle. In 1793 he was called to Jena as professor and went to Berlin in 1800 as royal physician, director of the medical college, and chief physician at the Charite. Hufeland was a leading figure in nineteenth-century medical journalism, editing four journals, and was also a prolific author. In addition to general medicine, he wrote on pediatrics, cholera, popular medicine, epidemiology, and vaccination for smallpox. His outspoken support for vaccination played a major role in its eventual adoption in Germany.? [Heirs of Hippocrates, 1183 (Die Kunst das menschliche Leben zu verlangern).
