Aimed at medical students and practitioners, it has been published in ten/eleven editions in German, and in editions in French and English. The first edition appeared in 1906, written by Wilhelm Kolle and Heinrich Hetsch, and the book is frequently referred to as "Kolle-Hetsch." The eighth (1938) and ninth (1942) editions were edited by Hetsch and Hans Schlossberger. The last, significantly revised and largely newly written edition, numbered as a combined tenth and eleventh edition, was published in 1952 by Urban & Schwarzenberg (now Elsevier) with Hans Schlossberger as general editor, and with contributions from H. Brandis, B. Schmidt, H.G. Haussmann, G. Straulino-v. Holzhausen, I. Weimershaus-Eckart, W. Frieber, A. Kutzsche and W. Weimershaus.[2] Although Schlossberger was general editor, much of the editing work was done by Brandis.

A French translation appeared in 1910, published by Doin,[3] and an English edition was published in 1934 by Allen & Unwin.
