The fifth revision of the original (Bertillon’s) classification of causes of death (but encompassing morbidity also) can be found at the WHO website. The publication is written in French and is 306 pages.
There is a further reference to the fifth revision of the international classification of the causes of death in this article at the WHO website. The conference for the fourth revision was held in 1929.
The publication lists 200 causes of death and morbidity. At the conference it was recommended that there was further study into joint (as opposed to single) causes of death. There was also increasing recognition that many countries had developed and were using their own lists of diseases.
