“Ramazzini was the first to recognize the social significance of occupational diseases and his book appeared at a most opportune time, since, with the beginning of industrial development in the eighteenth century, prevention of accidents from machinery and the general health of workers became increasingly important” (PMM).
Early German edition of this landmark work in occupational and preventive medicine. Ackermann’s edition of Ramazzini includes considerable additional observations and extensive commentary. Identifies diseases and health problems associated with more than fifty different occupations from miners, tailors, and dyers to glassblowers, trumpeters, and lime burners.
Uncommon and important edition, from the library of Dr. Ernst Wynder, twentieth-century pioneer in cancer research and preventive medicine.
