Catalogue Note

Nightingale "introduced the modern standards of training and esprit de corps, and early grasped the idea that diseases are not 'separate entities, which must exist, like cats and dogs,' but altered conditions, qualitative disturbances of normal physiological processes, through which the patient is passing" (Garrison, History of Medicine, p.773)

[loosely inserted:] typescript letter dated 18.12.48 to Dame Beryl, incorrectly identifying this issue, with the endpaper advertisements, as the earliest.
