This edition has been improved with corrections and illustrations. Virchow's criticism of the first edition impelled him to completely rewrite it; Garrison Morton notes "Rokitansky ranks with Morgagni as among the greatest of all writers on gross pathology" (see 2293). The first two volumes have the ink ownership of a James C. White of Vienna, dated 1856. As is.
