Wellcome IV, p.37; NLM/Krivatsi 7339; Frati 25; VD17 12:170444L. RARE FOURTH (FIRST FRANKFURT) EDITION of Malpighi's collection of anatomical treatises, which includes Malpighi's classic treatise on the kidney, De renibus proemium, in which he described the uriniferous tubules as well as the "Malpighian bodies." It was first published in Bologna in 1666 under the title De viscerum structura exercitatio anatomica. The work also includes the first description of Hodgkin's disease. "Malpighi's studies of the kidney gave support to his iatromechanical theory of glands as secretion machines; he concluded that the glomeruli were in direct contact with both arteries and veins, and postulated a similar connection between the glomeruli and uninary vessels" (Norman, for first ed). The final work included is his chief hematological treatise, De polypo cordis dissertatio, which contains Malpighi's demonstration that the polyps consisted of coagulum found in normal blood. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
