About this Item

At head of title: Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes. 240 x 152 mm. 8vo. iii, 360 pp. 159 figs., indexes; occasional light foxing. Modern quarter dark red morocco, original marbled boards, raised bands, gilt stamped spine. Fine. FIRST EDITION. This work contains fifteen memoirs of research conducted in the Paris laboratory of pathologic physiology of the College de France, Paris, which Marey founded; it was the first private laboratory in Paris for the study of experimental physiology. Here with a team of researchers, Marey conducted his famous researches utilizing graphical methods and cinematography. His initial work utilized modified versions of instruments devised by Carl Ludwig. This volume is one of a series, of at least four, presenting his experimental work from the late 1870s. The laboratory studied the circulation, heartbeat, respiration and muscular contraction in the 1860s and began to turn to locomotion studies in the 1870s, while continuing investigations into animal heat, electro-physiology and cardiac physiology. This volume contains work by eight researchers; Marey himself contributed one essay, while the majority of the works were written by Charles Emile Francois-Franck (1849-1921) who was at this time assistant to Marey in the laboratory. This work reports on electrical equipment used to measure various medical conditions, including cranial pressure and cerebral circulation, heart pressure and others. Most of the illustrations are of measurements taken with the equipment, but there are many illustrations of the equipment itself. DSB, IX, pp. 101-103; Haymaker & Schiller, Founders of neurology, p. 207-209. Bookseller Inventory # M1199LV
