Up to 1927 there were few professional-scientific medical editions in Croatia. Croatian Medical Association filled this noticeable gap in 1927 by starting Medical library published by "Lijecnicki vjesnik" (whose editor was in those days Dr. Vladimir Jelovsek). From 1927 to 1942, with a break during war and postwar period, from 1949 to 1952, and from 1958 to 1963, this library issued 49 books of exceptional quality (designated as 91 volumes) on over 4300 pages, written by our most distinguished experts. Our first monographs on endocrinology, hematology, maxillary surgery and other medical fields were published here. With regard to their structure, they were not only manuals for practitioners, but also textobooks for medical students, and in the last years also texts for postgraduate studies. The author considers all 49 published books, gives bibliographic description and main features of the publications, with short information on authors. Medical library of "Lijenicki vjesnik" will rightfully be recorded as the greatest project of Croatian medical editions in the first half of the 20th century.
