Note:Ex-library copy. Translation of vols. ii-iii of 1842-46 German edition. First (and only) Dutch translation of Rokitansky's "Handbuch d. speciellen Pathologische Anatomie", one of the great classics in medical history. Rokitansky is said to have supervised 70,000 autopsies. Around Rokitansky's autopsies the school began "one of the most fruitful and brilliant epochs of Viennese medicine". A paradigm shift occurred, led by Rokitansky, Josef Skoda, and Ferdinand von Hebra, moving from the notion of medicine as a branch of natural philosophy, to the more modern notion of it as a science (Wikipedia)
