Choulant, pp. 245-7. Wellcome II, 107; Waller 714; NLM/Krivatsy 776. THIRD EDITION of Thomas Bartholin's (1616-80) famous anatomy, an illustrated revision of his father's famous Anatomicae instituiones corpori humani (Caspar Bartholin, 1611). One of the most brilliant of the distinguished Danish family of anatomists and scientists, Bartholin claimed priority of discovery of the intestinal lymphatics over Rudbeck. "Although anticipated in this by Rudbeck, there is no doubt that Bartholinus was the first to appreciate the significance of the lymphatic system as a whole" (see Garrison-M 1097n). Bartholin early adopted and defended the teachings of Harvey. This volume, a much used anatomical textbook, contains two letters of John de Waal, De Motu Chyli et Sanguinis, supporting Harvey's discovery.
*Gottfridus David (or Gottfried Davidis, 1645-1717) was a physician who practiced in Unna, Westphalia. He is known for two works on medicine and diet. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
