Comments: Cushing G 196. Reynolds 1632. A fine work by America's then leading expert on the subject. By 1836, Gerhard (1809-1872) was already recognized as one of Louis' most brilliant American students and as a leading authority in his own right. The work became the basis of part of Gerhard's clinical lectures on the subject at the university of Penn., where he has been described as a very sought after teacher in the field. He is the author of the most authoritative American work on diseases of the chest (1842) prior to Flint. (Garrison). This copy belonged to Henry Massie Bullitt (1817- 1880), teacher of medicine at St. Louis Medical College, and elsewhere. Bullitt taught in five medical schools, two of which he founded.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties... I am very pleased with the service I received from your company and will inform my fellow faculty members that they can look forward to professional service from your book shop. Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
