Norman 1363; DSB III, pp. 87-90, 94-95; Garrison-Morton 2298 (last paper only). FIRST EDITION, offprint issue, but with a separate general title, of three closely related papers on inflammation: 1. "An inquiry regarding the parts of the nervous sytem which regulate the contractions of the arteries", 2. "On the cutaneous pigmentary system of the frog" and 3. "On the early stages of inflammation", the fruit of a year's intensive research into the process of inflammation, which Lister read to the Royal Society on June 18, 1857. Of these the last is the most important: it "records the earliest vascular and tissue changes induced in the frog's web by such irritants as hot water and mustard" (DSB). Lister correctly concluded from these experiments that inflammation was an active rather than a passive principle, a special response of living tissue to irritation, consisting of a "suspension of function or temporary abolition of vital energy" (p. 698). "Lister always believed - mistakenly but sincerely - that these three papers on inflammation were his most important work, eclipsing even his introduction of antiseptic techniques into surgical practice" (Norman). - Visit our website to see more images!
