This work was the text for Bernard’s course on the nervous system given at the Collége de France where he was professor of experimental physiology. Bernard’s work in neuro-physiology includes the description of the origin and function of the chorda tympani, the cervical sympathetic system, and an examination of the vasomotor innervation of blood vessels. He also gives his description of "Horner’s syndrome" (Garrison and Morton 1328) due to lesion of the cervical sympathetic, offering proof that the sympathetic governs the pupillary, vasomotor, sudomotor, and pilomotor functions. "He supported the thesis of Marshall Hall and Müller on the spinal reflexes.... Bernard also showed that the anterior or ventral root arises from ganglionic cells" McHenry.

Untrimmed, partially. opened. Very good.. FIRST EDITION. "Bernard began work on this, his last book, in 1873 and did not quite finish the final corrections before his death. Utilizing, in part, a series of lectures he had given in 1859-1860, he brought them up to date, performed new experiments where necessary, and added new material to complete the work. Bernard had revised only twenty of the twenty-nine lectures in the book at the time of his death and it remained for his assistants Mathias Marie Duval (1844-1907) and Arsene d’Arsonval (1851- 1940) to finish the work. Arranged in four parts, the treatise discusses general physiological processes, the techniques and methods used in experimental physiology, physiology of the circulatory system along with experimental pharmacology, and the physiology of the digestive system." Heirs of Hippocrates. "In this, his last work, Bernard showed himself ‘the unapproachable master in the technique of experimental procedure’ (Garrison)." Garrison and Morton. Cushing B317; Garrison and Morton 634; Heirs of Hippocrates 1801; Osler 1519; Waller 955. . 2 First Edition.

FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR TO PIERRE ADOLPHE PIORRY. The first disinfecting agent. Privately printed account of Labarraque’s use of alkali hypochlorite as a disinfectant, using sodium hypochlorite solution ("Labarraque’s liquid"). After Scheele isolated chlorine in 1774, French chemists sought to find practical applications for hypochlorite. Labarraque, a pharmacist, introduced the use of alkali hypochlorite as a disinfectant, using sodium hypochlorite solution in 1822. Three years later, after publishing accounts of the liquid’s use in the Archives générales de médecine and an 1823 pamphlet entitled Préfecture de police, Labarraque issued this privately printed memoir. Labarraque’s solution was the first disinfecting agent, and its application represents the first use of antisepsis in surgery. English translation 1825. Apparently all copies were issued without a title-page. PROVENANCE: Inscribed on the first page: "A Mr. Piorry Dr. Medn. de la part de l’auteur." Pierre Adolph Piorry (1794-1879) introduced the percussor and the pleximeter in 1826. See: Garrison and Morton 2675.
