First edition. Bookplate of Rochester Academy of Medicine on front endpaper, indicating it was donated by Clarence V. Costello, M.D., their stamp on title page and rear endpaper with ink number and pencil donation note on dedication page. 1929 Large Hardcover. xxxv, 785, [1] pp. 4to. A bibliography of notable medical works, collected, arranged, and annotated by a co-founder of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler's creation of the first residency program and emphasis on teaching students through clinical experience rather than lectures led many to call him the father of modern medicine. Garrison-Morton 6772: This bibliography of over 7,500 titles is the catalogue of Osler’s magnificent library. Because the annotations are in many cases based on notes that Osler wrote in his books, it is one of the most interesting annotated bibliographies in the history of medicine, and science, and stands as a monument to its author.
