About this Item

Contemporary quarter green roan over patterned boards, gilt-stamped spine title, spine stamped "Hortet" (former owner ?) at bottom; boards rubbed. Bookplate of Andras Gedeon. Very good. FIRST EDITION. "Piorry, a pioneer of mediate percussion, introduced the percussor and the pleximeter in 1826. He also developed refinements to Laennec's stethoscope. He claimed that every organ had its own special sound, and that the pleximeter could be used to locate various places, within the heart and to measure thicknesses of the heart walls; these claims were refuted by Josef Skoda."
