Correspondence between Albrecht von Graefe and Frans Cornelius Donders

In 2013, the friendly correspondence between Albrecht von Graefe and Frans Cornelius Donders was newly transcribed, edited and annotated. The colour volume “Albrecht von Graefe to Frans Cornelis Donders. Briefe 1852 bis 1870” not only deals with scientific questions, but also sheds a very personal-human light on the founder of modern ophthalmology, Albrecht von Graefe. Family matters and worries, travels and alpine sports, congresses and operations of high-ranking personalities take up a lot of space. The letters are an example of 19th century German social history.

The editors and authors of the book are the historian Professor Thomas Schilp, Director of the Archive of the City of Dortmund, and the ophthalmic historian Professor Jens Martin Rohrbach, Head of the Research Department History of Ophthalmology at the University in Tübingen. The German Ophthalmological Society had decided on the new edition after the 1935 edition no longer seemed up to date due to abridgements and mistranscriptions. The book is available in bookshops.
