German EdOf greater value have been the researches on the histogenesis of tumors- yet I find in these essentially only a confirmation and a more thorough grounding of our older views. I cannot, bring myself to the acceptance of all the latest, views for example, the assumption that the preliminary condition of tumor development is to be found in the isolation, disconnection, and misplacement of germinal anlage or of single cells during embryonal or extrauterine life (Ribbert, Borrmann), or that the epithelial cells of a carcinoma can become transformed into connective-tissue cells (Krompecher).Significant advances in the theory of fatty degeneration and glycogen deposit are also to be noted- and although many problems must still wait a solution, our knowledge concerning these processes has been greatly furthered through the labors of recent years.The long discussion over the significance of the cells appearing in the tissues during the course of inflammation has at last reached certain conclusions. The questions still unsettled are of minor importance.The arrangement of the book is left, on the whole, as in the last edition- but I have not simply inserted the new facts and views, many sections having been entirely recast to agree with the additions. The number of illustrations has been increased from 586 to 604. The bibliography has been given a careful revision and brought up to the autumn of this year.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
