About this Item

Baudrimont, Alexandre E. Recherches anatomiques et physiologiques sur le developpement du foetus. . . . .Offprint from Mem. presentes div. sav. Acad. Sci. XI. 4to. [4], 224pp. 18 engraved plates (14 hand-colored after Martin-Saint-Ange, 4 plain after Baudrimont). 325 x 250 mm. Original cloth-backed printed baords, mostly unipened. Worn, some staining and light foxing, but very good. Paris: Imprimerie nationale, 1850. First separate edition. A very early study of chemical changes in embryonic deveolpment, which won the grand prize in physical sciences from the French Academy of Sciences in 1846, but was not published until the Academy memoirs appeared four years later. The authors studied changes in texture and structure in vertebrate organs, the physiology of bird and frog eggs, and the effects of gases, salts and poisonous substances on these. They used the latest technology, the microphotograph, along with drawings, for their illustrations, fourteen of which represent embryological development in hand-colored engravings. Four plain plates show apparatus. Baudrimont was especially qualified for these studies, as a pharmacist, physician and chemist whose theories anticipated important developments in the field. He was given credit by Laurent for the term "type chimique," introduced in his work on organic chemistry in 1838. His embryology studies with Martin-Saint-Ange were his most important contribution to physiology. DSB. Cole II, 17. Bookseller Inventory # 7454
