In 1948, Edmund Dubois finished a pathology fellowship at the Los Angeles County General Hospital and was looking for a job. Although he had trained at Johns Hopkins, Parkland Hospital in Dallas and in 
Salt Lake City, he recently had married a local woman whose family was tied to the community, and knew that he could not leave Southern California. After several fits and starts in private practice settings, in 1950 Ed had a momentous meeting with Paul Starr, the chief of Internal Medicine at the general hospital. “We have 8 patients with a newly positive blood test known as the LE cell prep who have interesting clinical features, and it would be great if you could look into this” was all that he needed to know before accumulating 500 lupus patients by the mid-1960s.
First edition (1966):Dubois signed a contract with McGraw-Hill to publish the first monograph devoted to lupus erythematosus that appeared in 1966 and sold for $20. It was 479 pages with 183 figures and had 1500 references. He wrote 70% of the text, with Ian Mackay and Naomi Rothfield (who are still active in teaching and research) along  with  Peter  Miescher  covering  most  of  the  basic  science sections.
Second  edition  (1974): After  unsuccessful  negotiations  with McGraw-Hill to put out a second edition and an eight-year time lapse, with the permission of the university Ed established the University of Southern California Press and paid the Jeffries Banknote Company (which printed checks for banks) to publish the second edition. His wife and family bought booth space at medical meetings and sold the book, which was titled “Lupus Erythematosus: a Review of the Current Status of Discoid and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and their Variants”. It had 798 pages and 2975 alphabetized references and 11 of the 16 chapters were written by Dubois. Other notable authors included Ian Mackay, Larry Shulman, Sam Rapaport and Victor Pollack.Second edition, revised (1976):Also self published, this edition included the 1974 edition unchanged and tagged on a supplement to each  chapter  with  two  year  updates.  It  now  had  3145  alphabetized references and over 200 black and white illustrations
