Notes :

Included is a review of the literature, starting with Scharlau's preparations of two stillborns, possibly rachitic, the first one delivered by a 34 year-old wife of an alcoholic who, before coming to term, had experienced a shock from seeing one very disfigured and dwarfish man (vide: »»). Eberth was a master at tissue preparation and staining for the microscope. He was responsible for the reworked fourth and subsequent editions of Carl Friedländer's (1847-1887) textbook on microscopy titled, Mikroskopische Technik zum Gebrauch bei medizinischen und pathologisch-anatomischen Untersuchungen (Berlin: Fischer's medicinische Buchhandlung, 1889). The fifth edition ( 1894) included zincograph reproductions of Eberth's photomicrographs and a chapter on photomicrography written by Dr. Paul Heinrich Braunschweig (1859-1927), a privatdocent in opthalmology at University Halle at the time.
