These lectures by German physicians on how to percuss people, on the biological effects of Roentgen Rays, on the “exchange of energy in children” and much more are a fascinating combination of groundbreaking, misguided and deadly serious. Written side by side in English and German, the findings and propositions, given at the the turn of the twentieth century, are a fascinating insight into the progression of medicine as a field.
