Notes

First printing of one of the most influential papers in the history of oncology, the paper that gained its author eponymous fame, in which he described seven cases with an unusual appearance of the lymph glands and spleen. Sir Samuel Wilks made similar observations more than 30 years later, and recalling Hodgkin's earlier paper, named the disorder Hodgkin's disease. This is a remarkably rare publication, only one example having appeared at auction for 25 years: the Friedman copy, ex-Aberdeen University library, which sold in 2001 for 18,000 plus premium.
