In a herculean effort, Sir William Osler wrote the world’s first comprehensive medical reference book, Principles and Practice of Medicine. It was published by Appleton in 1892 and continued in print until the 16th edition, published in 1947, thus taking quite a long time to go out of vogue. The effort was heroic because Osler wrote every word himself—no contributed chapters for him—a task that took 3 years. His fiancé refused to marry him until the manuscript was complete. Following Osler’s retirement, later editions of the book were a collection of contributions by Johns Hopkins faculty members .
