This beautifully produced volume with fine illustrations by Pieter Lyonet brings together the results of Trembley's work on the hydra (cf.DSB) "Trembley was one of the pioneers of experimental morphology. The above work records how he cut hydras into several pieces, producing new individuals, and how, by cutting up the latter, he obtained a third generation. His experiments were of great importance in the study of the regeneration of lost parts, he was the first to make permanent grafts and to witness cell division" (Garrison Morton 307).

Annotation collé sur feuille de garde: 'Ouvrage peu commun assez curieux et recherché des Amateurs de l'histoire naturelle .1786 .' Poggendorff II.1129. A History of the Ecological Sciences, 30: F.N. Egerton; Invertebrate Zoology and Parasitology During the 1700s p. 416-17: 'Regeneration in hydra was discovered by a Genevan scholar living in The Netherlands, Abraham Trembly (1710-1784), [.]. When Trembly discovered a green hydra (= Chlorohydra viridissima) [.] he was uncertain whether it was animal or plant. He thought he could decide by cutting it in half and seeing if it died like an animal or regenerated like a plant. It did regenerate, but its behavior left him uncertain. On 26 September, he initiated a correspondence with Réaumur [.]. After Trembley sent him live specimens, Réaumur assured him that they were animals. By the time Trembley sent an account to the Royal Society of London (1743), word of his sensational discovery had arrived several times [.]. The book he published on his experiments in 1744 explained more than 50 discoveries, including green hydras moving towards light despite the lack of eyes. He was highly praised both for his techniques and conclusions [.]. The illustrations were drawn and engraved by his friend and fellow naturalist, Pierre Lyonet (1706-1789), whose own anatomical studies and illustrations of insects made him the worthy successor of Swammerdam and Malpighi [.].'.

Item Description: Chez Jean & Herman Verbeek, 1744. Couverture rigide. - Chez Jean & Herman Verbeek, à Leyde 1744, In-4 (19x25,5cm), XV (1) 324pp., relié. - Édition originale, illustrée de 4 très jolis entêtes par Pronk, 4 culs-de-lampe et 13 planches dépliantes sur les polypes. Exemplaire aux armes frappés sur le dos (hermines et macles) des Rohan-Chabot. Les reliures aux armes des Rohan et des Rohan-Chabot ont en effet la particularité de porter les meubles d'armes sur le dos exclusivement. Reliure en plein veau blond d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné d'hermines et de macles couronnés. Mors intégralement fendus. Coiffes arasées. Coins frotement émoussés. Rares petites pîqûres, dernières planches avec la marge haute salie. C'est dans ces mémoires que Tremblay découvrit l'hydre, ou hydra, polype d'eau douce qu'il observa durant plusieurs années, alors qu'il était précepteur du fils d'un comte qui possédait une propriété avec étang et ruisseaux. Il y relate méticuleusement et à l'aide d'un esprit particulièrement éclairé ses observations et ses expériences. Après avoir pris l'hydre pour une plante, Tremblay comprend qu'il a affaire à un animal, capable de se déplacer avec ses tentacules (les cornes), et qui est photosensible, se dirigeant instinctivement vers le point le plus lumineux. Il constate, par de multiples et intelligentes expérimentations que l'hydre a le pouvoir de se régénérer grâce à la division cellulaire, et enfin que l'hydre peut se reproduire de façon asexuée. Les études de Tremblay trouvèrent un écho auprès de ses contemporains, mais tombèrent rapidement dans l'oubli, certainement parce qu'elles étaient concurentielles de celles de Réaumur. La zoologie moderne réhabilita l'importance de ses travaux et la qualité de ses expérimentations.

EDITION ORIGINALE ---- EXEMPLAIRE AYANT APPARTENU au Professeur KOLLIKER avec une dédicace à ce dernier par un de ses amis ainsi libellée : "To Professor Albert KOLLIKER with kindest regards from his friend - London 13th Sept 1855" - suit la signature indéchiffrable de cet ami ---- BEL EXEMPLAIRE GRAND DE MARGE ---- Leide, Verbeek, 1744, un volume in 4 (26 cm x 20,5 cm) relié en demi-basane marron, dos orné de filets dorés (reliure XIXème siècle), 15pp., (1pp.), 324pp., (1), 13 PLANCHES dépliantes ---- GARRISON N° 307 : "Trembley discovered the hydra and was the first to observe in it asexual reproduction, regeneration and photosensitivity in an animal without eyes. His experiments were of great importance in the study of regeneration of lost parts. He was the first to make permanent grafts and to witness cell-division" ---- "It is noteworthy that Trembley tried on hydra nearly every possible experiment in regeneration and grafting that was likely to give interesting results. He was exploring territory that was almost entirely unknown ; yet the planning of his work was so complete, and its execution so thorough, that he might almost have been performing routine experiments on a system established by the long experimence of others. Trembley was persued by Réaumur to bring together the results of his work on the hydra in a book. The result was a beautifully produced volume entitle Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire d'un genre de polypes d'eau douce, à bras en forme de cornes (1744), with very fine illustrations by Pieter Lyonet".
