He was Court Physician at Hannover.': Garrison, pp. 365 - 366 a.o.pl.: Baas, p. 646: 'Werlhof's fame has been preserved to us until recently by the name of the "morbus maculosus Werlhofii" [see vol. II, pp. 615 - 636], which he first described. He merits high honor for his early struggle to establish in Germany the use of cinchona, and in the last century he was esteemed an historian and a practical writer of the first rank.'': Mettler, p. 411 a.o.pl.: 'Purpura Haemorrhagica was also confused with scurvy as well as with typhus. It seems to have been first described as a separate entity by Paul Gottlieb Werlhof...': On Johann Ernst Wichmann (1740 - 1802) see Baas p. 645 for a biographical sketch. A very good copy.
