1 BERNARD, Claude. Lecons de physiologie operatoire.
Paris: J.-B. Bailliere et fils, 1879. 1879 
8vo. xvi, 624, [ads 20] pp. 116 figs. (1 hand-colored p. 256); hint of foxing to preliminaries. Later blue buckram, original wrappers bound in. Fine. 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. First Edition.
