Thomas Hodgkin

I found something interesting while I was on ebay the other day. Someone in the United States is selling an original printing of Thomas Hodgkin's doctoral thesis. Entitled Dissertatio Physiologica Inauguralis De ABSORBENDI FUNCTIONE (in Latin), it was printed in Edinburgh in 1823. This should not be confused with his famous paper "On Some Morbid Appearances of the Absorbent Glands and Spleen" published in Medico-Chirurgical Transactions, the journal of the Medical and Chirurgical Society in London 9 years later.

I added the info to my original Hodgkin's Disease Timeline.

You might want to see the auction - it will probably end before you read this - it was up to $702.00 when I last saw it - a bit high for a hard working survivor.
