New-York: Collins, 1827. 1827 
Two volumes. 220 x 138 mm. 4to. xxiv, (17)-584; 475 pp. Over 120 figs., 9 plates (7 engraved, 2 lithographic), tables; foxed, browned. Original tree calf, gilt spine, red leather spine label; rubbed. Ownership signature of Samuel Tredwell. Very good. Fifth American edition. The Bell’s Anatomy of the human body was first published from 1793 to 1804 in four volumes, with illustrations by the authors. From 1816 the book was known as The Anatomy of Physiology of the Human Body. Early editions were printed in four volume, later edition in three, and the last American issue was published in two volumes. John Bell exerted great influence on the development of British surgery, particularly through his work on surgical pathology. He had a special interest in surgery of the blood vessels and was the first to ligate the gluteal artery. An excellent artist, like his even more famous younger brother, Sir Charles Bell, John illustrated his own books, and his engravings of the different parts and organs of the human body are landmarks in the history of anatomic illustrations. Provenance: Samuel Tredwell, MD (1805-1873), married to Amanda Tredwell, lived in Mineola, and Long Island, New York. Was recognized as a “physician and surgeon of eminence and a gentleman of culture and refinement”. See: The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Volume 43. p. 386; Peter Ross, William Smith Pelletreau, A History of Long Island: From Its Earliest Settlement to the present time, 1905, Volume 2, p.12.

FIRST EDITION of a series of essays, published posthumously, together with the funeral orations by Jean-Baptiste Dumas and Paul Bert. ?After the publication of the ‘Introduction’ had given Bernard a literary as well as a scientific reputation he began to contribute occasionally to the Revue des Deux Mondes, and these essays which were assembled posthumously with a few other papers in ‘Experimental Sciences’ were chiefly devoted to the restatement of his views on determinism, with, however, and increasing emphasis, as time passed, on the autonomy of physiology as the science of the phenomena of life.?

8 BERNARD, Claude (1813-1878). Leçons sur les Proprietes Physiologiques et les Alterations Pathologiques des Liquides de l’Organisme.
Paris: J.-B. Baillière, 1859. 1859 
Two volumes. 8vo. xvi, 524; 476 pp. Illustrations. Quarter brown morocco with marbled paper boards, gilt-stamped spine title with raised bands, original wrappers bound in. Fine. FIRST EDITION in a handsome binding. ?Bernard’s series of lectures on the liquids of the organism contains his first usage of the expression ‘milieu’ to express a controlled and constant internal environment (i.e., the blood) mediating between the life of the organism and its external environment. This fundamental physiological concept, for which he later coined the term ‘milieu interieure,’ would become as valuable to physiology as Darwin’s theory of evolution (published the same year) was to biology. The work also presents Bernard’s fourth and last major discovery in the field of animal experimentation, that the blood supply of secretory organs such as glands is regulated by vasomotor and vasoconstrictor nerves, which respond to the presence or absence of stimulus in the organ.? [Norman]. GM 1234.1; Gascoigne 14851.4; Haskell Norman Library 203; Heirs of Hippocrates No. 1796; Osler 1510; Waller 963. First Edition.

Leons sur la Physiologie et la Pathologie du Systme Nerveux., BERNARD, Claude (1813-1878).
9 BERNARD, Claude (1813-1878). Leons sur la Physiologie et la Pathologie du Systme Nerveux.
Paris: J. -B. Baillire, 1858. 
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 Bernards 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. Bernards 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 intrieur, or extra-cellular fluid environment, and its physiological capacity to ensure protective stability for the tissues and organs (Wikipedia). Contains Bernards description of Horners Syndrome from lesion of the cervical sympathetic, offering proof that the sympathetic governs the papillary vasomotor, sudomotor, and pilomotor functions (Garrison & Morton 1328). First Edition.

10 BOHR, Christian (1855-1911). "Ueber die Abweichung des Sauerstoff's von dem Boyle-Mariotte'schen Gesetze bei niedrigen Drucken."
In: Annalen der Physik und Chemie, Neue Folge, Band XXVII, 1886. 1886 
224 x 150 mm. 8vo. Pages 459-479. [Entire volume: viii, 680 pp.] 3 tables, 2 figs. on 1 (of 5) folding lithographic plates. Quarter brown calf, calf corners, marbled boards, raised bands, red and black leather spine labels, gilt spine. Ex library blind-stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Solar Observatory. Fine. FIRST EDITION. On the Deviation From Boyle-Mariotte's Law of Oxygen at Low Pressures. In 1885 Christian Bohr was awarded a silver medal by the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences for this paper on the deviation from Boyle-Mariotte's law of oxygen at low pressures. Christian Bohr received the Ph.D. in medicine in 1880 on a study of suspended fat droplets in natural milk. Bohr became privatdocent in 1881 at the University of Copenhagen, lektor (associate professor) in 1886, and professor in 1890. Bohr was rector of the University from 1905-1906. Bohr was an excellent physicist with a good mathematical knowledge, who showed a high degree of originality. Bohr is principally remembered for two things. As a scientist, he is remembered for his discovery of the influence of carbon dioxide on the release of oxygen by hemoglobin (1904, Garrison and Morton 726). Christian Bohr was also the father of the celebrated twentieth century physicist, Niels Bohr. Pais, Niels Bohr's times, pp. 36-37. First Edition.
