First Edition, Offprint Issue. “Niemann-Pick disease,” a group of inherited, severe metabolic disorders, was first noted by Albert Niemann in 1914, but Pick’s 1926 account is fuller and of greater importance. The disease, which primarily affects Jewish infants, has some similarities to Tay-Sachs disease; the provenance of this copy is therefore of some interest. Garrison-Morton.com 3785.
