8vo. X, 399 pp. Frontispiece portrait, 10 illus., 10 plates. Later plain wrappers; disbound. Good. The autobiography of Kolliker (born Rudolf Albert Kolliker; 1817 – 1905), of Zurich, the noted Swiss anatomist and physiologist. "His early education was carried on in Zurich, and he entered the university there in 1836. After two years, however, he moved to the University of Bonn, and later to that of Berlin, becoming a pupil of noted physiologists Johannes Peter Muller and of Friedrich Gustav Jakob Henle. He graduated in philosophy at Zurich in 1841, and in medicine at Heidelberg in 1842. The first academic post which he held was that of prosector of anatomy under Henle, but his tenure of this office was brief - in 1844 he returned to Zurich University to occupy a chair as professor extraordinary of physiology and comparative anatomy. His stay here was also brief; in 1847 the University of Wurzburg, attracted by his rising fame, offered him the post of professor of physiology and of microscopical and comparative anatomy. He accepted the appointment, and at Wurzburg he remained thenceforth, refusing all offers tempting him to leave the quiet academic life of the Bavarian town, where he died." – Wikipedia.
