This is the third revised and enlarged edition of the famous Aschoff tables of the history of medicine. They make available in brief form the dates and the records of medical discovery. It is interesting to observe that the leading contributions of the current decades are considered by the author to be the development of insulin, the Aschheim-Zondek test, the antiallergic rooms, new anesthetics such as ethylene, acetylene and tribrom-ethanol, the use of activated ergosterol for rickets, and the new operations on the sympathetic nervous system. To these the author would add some new political effects on medicine, including the point of view of the Nazi government in Germany.
