I am a medical student and as the title suggests I am looking for some advice on classical textbooks in medicine. Not the kind of Harrison's/Merck/Guyton and the like which need to be frequently updated because the field constantly changes but something like Cope's Early Diagnosis of the Acute Abdomen (Silen, Early Diagnosis of the Acute Abdomen) or Classic Teachings in Clinical Cardiology: A Tribute to W. Proctor Harvey (parts of it because cardiology has advanced very much since his time) that offer clinical wisdom, pearls and the rationale of the old physicians who didn't rely so much on PET scans and immunoassays.
I would be grateful for any suggestions you might make. Thanks in advance!
Edit: Preferably I would like them to be in print like the 2 ones mentioned above, not something collectible but of little clinical value such as Sir William Osler's The principles and practice of medicine: Designed for the use of practitioners and students of medicine
