Publishing Highlights 1890–2015Take a guided tour through 125 years of medical and scientific publishing
Let us take you on a stroll through the history of Karger Publishers and introduce you to a very special collection of publications. They have been hand-picked to represent the history of the publishing house as well as to illustrate the development of medicine and its subspecialties over time. Admittedly, this selection is highly personal and thus quite subjective, however, we are certain that you will come across fascinating glimpses into the past or present you may have missed otherwise!
We are proud to say that all titles, with very few exceptions, are still available, many in their original first or a later print edition and most as eBooks, thanks to the Karger eBook Archive Collection, also inaugurated in 2015. Purchase details can be found on the individual book home which also includes access to the contents as well as to free sample chapters. Alternatively, contact Jana Steimle, who will also be happy to find out for you if a specific old journal issue or any other treasure is still available from our archives.
Those who would like to delve a little deeper will find ample material in the richly-illustrated free Karger Festschrift, which was brought up to date for the 125th anniversary. The Festsschrift is available here as a hard cover book and as a free cover-to-cover PDF.
Let's begin the tour: Follow us on our leisurely walk through interesting times, fascinating topics and beautiful illustrations. Enjoy!
