Handbuch der Gewebelehre des Menschen für Aerzte und Studierende.
First edition, scarce. ‘A Swiss by birth, Kölliker received his medical education by attending Müller’s lectures in Berlin and studying at Heidelberg where he graduated. After serving as prosector for Henle in Zurich, Kölliker was called to Würzburg where he remained for half a century. A genius, possessing remarkable powers of observation, he made enormous strides in the understanding of human and animal tissue. He was the first to apply Schwann’s cell doctrine to embryology and to isolate smooth muscle fiber ... Handbuch der Gewebelehre des Menschen, one of Kölliker’s most important works, may be considered the first textbook of histology’ (Heirs of Hippocrates).
