Footnotes

  • First edition of a scarce work by Friedrich Hoffmann (1660–1742), German physician, renowned for having introduced many drugs into practice (e.g. 'Hoffmann's Anodyne', or compound spirit of ether, and 'Hoffmann's Drops', or spirit of ether); and for being the first to describe several diseases, including appendicitis and German measles, and to recognize the regulatory role of the nervous system.
