Friderico Cassebohm . Halæ Magdeburgicæ Sumtibus Orphanotrophei, 1735. - - Guichard Joseph Duverney (1648-1730) "writings stand out because of their compactness, their wealth of content, their exemplary accuracy, and their precision of judgement. Investigation of the organ of hearing was one of his favorite fields of research. On his scientific journeys he thoroughly researched the hearing organ of fish. He summarized all his otological knowledge in the Traité de l'organe de Tome (Treatise on the Organ of Hearing) published in 1683. He wanted to publish a new enlarged edition, in particular adding new "curious observations" presented at the Royal Academy of Sciences in 1705." - "Unfortunately, he was not able to finish this work. A second edition was published a few months after his death, but without any new details, and corresponding exactly to the 1683 edition. Reprinted many times and translated in particular into Latin, German and English, this treatise surpassed all expectations and became the reference for studying otology for many decades. "It is in publishing the work on the structure of the ear that Mr Duvemey laid down the foundations of the high reputation which he has enjoyed and always will enjoy amongst anatomists; very different from those who are wont to find glory in proposing new explanations on parts which they do not know, Mr Duverney made it a rule to study the internal structure of organs and to describe them with the greatest precision before dealing with their uses and indicating their diseases. One must know the healthy state in order to make fruitful study of the diseased state. Guided by the spirit of method and illuminated by the most brilliant and solid genius Duverney collected into a small volume the most interesting truths." Duverney's treatise was a comparatively short work, but full of relevant data divided into three parts: anatomy, physiology, pathology and therapy." - "The otological investigations of the following centuries attest to the impact Duverney's treatise had on the development of otology. Itard wrote in 1821 that "the works of J. G. Duverney occupy in the history of medicine a place no less honorable than that of Fallopio's research." In his history of otology published in 1833, Dann situated Duverney's treatise as a landmark between the second and third period in the history of otology." Albert Mudry, History of Otology (2015), pp.157-167 - - Johann Friedrich Cassebohm (1699-1743) "Born in Halle, Cassebohm studied medicine in his native town, in Frankfurt and Paris, in particular under the supervision of Winslow. He occupied the chair of anatomy first at the University of Halle, then Frankfurt, and finally Berlin. Although he deserved credit for advancing the study of anatomy in general, it was his anatomical work on the organ of hearing that made him famous. The results of his research on the embryonic organ of hearing far surpassed those of his predecessors, including Valsalva and Morgagni. Until the time of Huschke and von Baer, Cassebohm's description of the development of the ear was . [Attributes: Hard Cover]
