Correcting an Old Error in Entry 918 on Respiratory Muscle Function

Today I was very pleased to receive from my colleague and friend Fritz Dieter Söhn of Marburg, Germany, a correction for the Georg Erhard Hamburger entry (No. 918). Book form editions of this bibliography incorrectly cited the third edition of 1748 instead of the first edition of 1727, in which the observation was first published. As a result of Fritz's very helpful information and references, the entry and its annotation are now very much improved.

One of the many great advantages of having the bibliography functioning as a dynamic database online rather than a printed book is the ability to make corrections and additions. Revisions, additions, corrections are always welcome.
