About this Item

2 volumes. 8vo. viii, 520; [iv], 560, ads 12 pp. 65 woodcuts and illustrations, indices. Original printed wrappers, in modern quarter gilt-stamped black leather over marbled paper-backed boards folding cases, in a matching slipcase; wrappers carefully repaired, spines slightly rubbed. Fine. BEAUTIFUL SET. FIRST EDITION of this superb summary of Bernard's work, along with that of his predecessors. Bernard, called "one of the greatest men of all science" by I. Bernard Cohen, revolutionized medicine through his advocacy of the scientific method and blind experiments and refusal to accept assumptions or shaky conclusions. He was the primary proponent of experimentation through vivisection, or experimentation on living animals, to the disgust of his family and some colleagues. Bernard's research included revelations about the pancreas and liver and the discovery of the vaso-motor system. He is perhaps best known for his concept of 'milieu interieur," or extra-cellular fluid environment, and its physiological capacity to ensure protective stability for the tissues and organs (Wikipedia). Contains Bernard's description of "Horner's Syndrome" from lesion of the cervical sympathetic, offering proof that the sympathetic governs the papillary vasomotor, sudomotor, and pilomotor functions (Garrison & Morton 1328).
