In Reply: By 1901, Osler's annual income exceeded
$40 000.1 There was no personal income
tax at that time. In current dollars, this represents over $800 000 (adjusted
to 2001 dollars using the consumer price index). Of the approximately $40 000
that Osler earned in 1901, $7100 came from royalties on his textbook, first
published 9 years earlier. It ultimately sold over 500 000 copies.
