STADTMANN, Johann Friderick. Dissertatio medico-chirurgica de tetano quam gratiosae facultatis medicae consensu in alma argentoratensium universitate...

Argentorati [Strasbourg]. Typis Joh. Henrici Heitzii, Universitatis Typographi, 1785.
Quarto. 34pp. Marbled wrappers, stitched as issued. Slightly rubbed and marked.
An inaugural doctoral dissertation on tetanus delivered by Johann Friderick Stadtmann at the University of Strasbourg. Beginning with the observation of tetanus in a pregnant woman, Stadtmann proceeds to identify its types, symptoms and treatment. He followed then the traditional 18th-century theory whereby tetanus was the consequence of nerve injury, and not, as was discovered in 1884, to bacteria infecting wounds.
