An Anniversary Collection volume
"In the freshness with which long-past memories are evoked, and in its capacity to portray the excitement of the experimental laboratory it succeeds admirably in introducing the reader to Dr. Corner himself."—British Medical JournalThis book is a volume in the Penn Press Anniversary Collection. To mark its 125th anniversary in 2015, the University of Pennsylvania Press rereleased more than 1,100 titles from Penn Press's distinguished backlist from 1899-1999 that had fallen out of print. Spanning an entire century, the Anniversary Collection offers peer-reviewed scholarship in a wide range of subject areas.
"Of considerable interest to readers who are involved in or curious about medical research."—Library Journal
