Summary: Since its original publication in 1943, Morton's Medical Bibliography has become the world's foremost annotated guide to classic works in the history of medicine and related sciences. The compilation of the fifth edition has involved revision of the work from literally the first entry all the way through to the end. Certain sections are extensively revised, expanded and updated; others are only slightly corrected. Vi...rtually every section has been changed in some way.There are completely new sections for Ecology, Paleoanthropology: Human Prehistory, Teratology, Medical Education and the Medical Profession, Resuscitation, Aviation Medicine, Paleopathology, Sports Medicine, Paediatric Surgery, and Alternative Medicine: Acupuncture (Western References). References to Geriatrics have been significantly expanded within the section on State Medicine: Public Health: Geriatrics: Hygiene. The sections on Anatomy and Medicine in Art, have been extensively rewritten and expanded. In all, 1051 entries have been added, 2,313 annotations revised or rewritten, and 119 deleted. From the approximately 7,800 entries in the fourth edition the work has been expanded to a total of 8,927. The indices to personal names and subjects are completely new for this edition.Even though there are 8,927 entries in the bibliography, readers will note that the final entry in is numbered 6810. By the third edition in 1970 it was felt that in spite of certain limitations in the organizational scheme of this book the Garrison-Morton numbers were already sufficiently entrenched in the library records of the world that to change them would create more harm than good. Therefore entries were added by the use of decimals.Since its first appearance in 1943 the book has proved invaluable to medical writers and historians, research workers, medical and health science librarians, antiquarian booksellers and collectors of medical books.'This publication of this book is an exciting event. Mr Norman is well qualified to undertake this monumental revision..my advice is simply to hurry out and order the book before it goes out of print' Antiquarian Book Monthly Review
