I. Norman 1209; Garrison-M 383; Heirs of Hippocrates 632; Waller 5270; Wellcome III p.386; NLM/Krivatsy 6346. - FIRST EDITION of Kerckring's investigations into fetal development. Kerckring's most important and far-reaching contribution, presented in part two of the Spicilegium anatomicum, was his discovery that the fetal skeleton develops through the transformation of membrane and cartilage into bone. He 'was the first to describe 'Kerckring's ossicle,' an occasional center of ossification in the occipital bone' (Norman); his name is also preserved in the valvulae conniventes, or valves of Kerckring, a part of the small intestine, previously described by Falloppio, and studied in part I of the Spicilegium. -
II. Norman 1210; Waller 5268; Wellcome III p.387; NLM/Krivatsy 6345. - FIRST EDITION and a continuation of his study of fetal osteology; in it Kerckring sets forth his mistaken theory that the younger fetal skeleton is a mere miniature of the older fetus, backing his claim with reported "observations" of unprecedentedly early specimens, but it is clear from his illustrations that he was mistaken about their age and structure. He was correct, however, in stating that the ovaries of both oviparous and viviparous contain ova. (Norman 1210).
