The first edition came out in 1910 and was called by its author ‘the first attempt to create the guide to autopsy by a Russian’. That statement is correct, prior to that the most popular book on the subject was the guide by Johannes Ort, translated by Vladimir Krylov.

Mikhail Milhailovich Pokrovsky (1863-1920) was the pathologist, the founder of the department in Tomsk University, one of the best-known Siberian medical professors of the time. Apart from this work, in 1916 his book ‘General Pathology’ was published.
