Die Afrikaanse Huisdokter. 'n Volledige Gids Vir Gesondheid en Siekteversorging Met Die Laaste Ontdekkings Van Die Geneeskunde en Beproefde Geneeswyses Deur Uitstaande Geneeshere en Spesialiste
(Durban: Humphris-Allen, Waverley, 1957). . Three 4to volumes, each of dark green textured cloth, lettered in gilt on spine, with gilt rod of Asclepius emblem to upper cover; pp. xviii + 397, vii + (iii) + 378, ix + (iii) + 412, incl. index. The opening volume has, tipped in, a series of folding, colour 'paper doll' plates illustrating human anatomy, printed on thicker paper. These were prepared specifically for 'Die Huisdokter' by H. K. Wagner. The three books are further illustrated with photographic plates, full-colour artwork, and numerous diagrams in text. Extremities somewhat rubbed in each case; fore-edge of title page creased in folding introductory 'Ontleedkunde van die menslike liggaam', the fold further strengthened with archival tape; a little foxing to endpapers - occasionally elsewhere. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. A pioneering household encyclopaedia of health matters for the Afrikaner. 'Hierdie boek is vir die volk geskryf. Dit gaan uit van die standpunt dat elke man en vrou - die boer en die bywoner, die beroepsman en die klerk, die mynwerker en die mynbaas sowel as die geneesheer en die predikant die reg het op elke kennis wat hy op enige gebied kan verkry, en hierop maak die geneeskunde seker nie 'n uitsondering nie. Die sorg vir die gesondheid van die mens is nie meer soos in die ou dae die voorreg van die priesters of selfs van die geneeshere nie, maar dit is die plig van die enkeling om sorg te dra vir sy eie gesondheid en vir die liggaamlike en geestelike gesondheid en welsyn van die persone waarvoor hy verantwoordelik is. Elke persoon het sy eie liggaamstelsel en dit is sy verantwoordelikheid om dit in 'n goeie toestand te hou. Om dit te kan doen het hy nie net verstand en verantwoordelikheidsin nodig nie, maar ook 'n grondkennis van die samestelling en verrigtings van sy eie liggaam. Die tye van kwaksalwery en toorgeneeskunde is verby en vandag is dit nog net korrekte kennis en ervaring wat tel. Die mediese vakkundiges wat hierdie boek geskryf het, het hulle tot taak gestel om die noodsaaklike en verantwoorde kennis vir die gesondheid van elke volksgenoot, tot in die verste afgeleë plaashuise te bring.'.

"In 1873, after answering an appeal by the Bishop of Bloemfontein for teachers and nurses for the Orange Free State, [Henrietta Stockdale] went to the Clewer Hospital and to the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London to study nursing... She started her work at Kimberley in 1876 as a district nurse in the mining camps, but by 1877 was assigned as a sister to the Carnarvon Hospital there, where she started the first training school for nurses in South Africa... As a result of Stockdale's vision and drive, South Africa became the first country in the world to provide for state registration of both nurses and midwives ... This remarkable woman, who laid the foundation of professional nursing and modern hospital organisation in Southern Africa, was a singularly attractive person, tall, well-built, with a creamy complexion, soft, dark brown hair, blue eyes and a pleasant voice. She was regarded as a saint by some, and as a keen business woman politician by others. She had a fearless approach to the political questions of the day, and never hesitated to enlist the aid of a Royal Princess when she felt that nursing and the care of the sick were threatened." - DSAB II, pp. 716-7..

CLARKE, ANGELA
The American Mission Hospital Bahrain: Through the Changing Scenes of Life 1893-1993
(Bahrain, The American Mission Hospital Society, 1993). . Author's presentation inscription on front free endpaper. 4to; original black rexine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 288; profusely illustrated. A little very faint spotting to endpapers. Near fine condition. "Modern medical services first became available in the Arabian Gulf region during the last decade of the nineteenth century. These were conducted by pioneer missionaries of the Reformed Church in America, who first settled in Basra at the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Both there and elsewhere as these men and women traveled about the Gulf, they offered simple treatments and basic medications to those who sought their assistance. In time, physicians and nurses were recruited for the sake of establishing permanent services in the different locations occupied by the Reformed Church's Arabian Mission. … In Bahrain the American Mission Hospital continues to serve local residents with the technology of today, while maintaining the spirit of those pioneers who sacrificed so much to establish the medical work here in years gone by. Today, the hospital functions as an independent, non-profit, private community hospital under the auspices of the American Mission Hospital Society, Bahrain.".

Including previously untranslated documents, Generation interweaves the personal stories of these scientists against the backdrop of the Dutch "Golden Age." It is a riveting account of the audacious men who swept away old certainties and provided the foundation for much of our current understanding of the living world.'.

GUTSCHE, THELMA
There Was a Man. The Life and Times of Sir Arnold Theiler K.C. M.G. Of Onderstepoort
(Cape Town: Howard Timmins, 1979) 0869781642. . 4to; original pale brown boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (x) + 487, incl. index; plates; maps. Dustwrapper rubbed, and a bit edgeworn, with earlier owner's tape reinforcing to reverse of spine panel and flap folds; trace of spotting to edges; earlier owner's bookplate to front free endpaper; small scuff to lower pastedown. Good to very good condition. "The illustrious name of Max Theiler, Nobel laureate in Physiology and Medicine, has tended to overshadow that of his famous father, Sir Arnold Theiler K.C.M.G. who was honoured and respected in scientific circles throughout the world. It is doubtful who did more for the welfare of humanity. This authoritative biography puts the reader in a position to judge. Emigrating from Switzerland to the Transvaal in 1891 as a qualified veterinary surgeon, Arnold Theiler within weeks completely severed his left hand in a chaff-cutter. His career was apparently ruined but through sheer courage and dogged persistence aided by his wife Emma (who did much of his laboratory work), he became a world-famous veterinary pathologist... The world at large prospered from his discoveries and after his death, his Government erected a statue in his honour. Animal husbandry continues to benefit from his work and his dauntless courage and determination continue to inspire his successors. Drawn from hitherto unavailable sources, this is the first definitive account of his life and reveals the character and achievements of a strange man previously known only vaguely by repute.".
