NLM/Krivatsy 7332; Wellcome 14305330; Wing M348; Norman 1427 (for 1st). RARE SECOND EDITION of this 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 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). 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 to see more images!
