Wing H1084; Keynes 20; Wellcome III, p.219; Waller 4106. The second English edition of Harvey's celebrated De motu cordis in which he sets forth his discovery and experimental proof of the circulation of the blood. This new edition is virtually a reprint of the first in English of 1653. The translation, described by Keynes as "a vigorous, if unpolished, version... in contemporary language", was based upon the Latin edition published at Rotterdam in 1648. Also included in this edition are a translation of James De Back's treatise on the blood in which he offers a "defence of Harvey's circulation", and Harvey's essays written in response to Jean Riolan's criticisms. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
