Erste Ausgabe; Exemplar aus der Bibliothek von berühmten Mediziners Bernhard Naunyn (1839-1925) mit dessen Stempel und eigenh. Widmung des Verfassers an ihn. - Fenwick (1821-1902) "became known as a successful physician and teacher in London. In common with many Victorian physicians he was a morbid anatomist as well as a clinician, and he applied these skills particularly o the study of abdominal diseases. His achievements in clinical gastroenterology were considerable, but his discoveries and contributions in his chosen specialty are not now widely recognized. - No priority claim can be made for Fenwick in describing what we would now recognize as Crohn's disease. Similar cases had been reported previously by Combe and Saunders (1813) and Abercrombie (1828). But in his book 'Clinical Lectures on Some Obscure Diseases of the Abdomen' (1889) Fenwick discribed several particularly convincing examples. - The necropsy findings in a woman aged 27 illustrate the features he recognized. 'Many of the coils of intestine were adherent, and a communication existed between the caecum and a portion of the small intestine adherent to it, whilst the sigmoid flexure was adherent to the rectum, and a communication also existed between them. The lower ent of the ileum was much dilated and hypertrophied, and the ileo-caecal valve was contracted to the size of a swan's quill'" (Gibbs, S. Fenwick. Physician and Gastroenterologist, in: British Medical Journal, 1970, 3, 339 ff.). - Einband etw. verfärbt. Bookseller Inventory # 10733
