Osler

JAMA. 2005;293(15):1926. doi:10.1001/jama.293.15.1926-a

Meticulously researched and written by Richard L Golden, MD, his latest book is eighth in the McGill University series Osler Library Studies in the History of Medicine. Dr Golden, a world authority on Osler, provides a brief but comprehensive account of Osler’s famous textbook The Principles and Practice of Medicine, describing how it evolved through 16 editions, published in various languages, over 55 years.

Who would enjoy this book? Anyone interested in the history of medicine, medical educators, and, of course, Oslerians. At present, Osler’s text may be of historical importance only, but it has had a profound impact on those who have read it. Golden’s history would be an excellent gift for medical students and residents. It imparts interesting information on an educational text that shaped the practice of medicine throughout the world.
