FIRST EDITION of this interdisciplinary treatise for naturalists and physicians and one of the main works of romantic natural philosophy. "[Treviranus] was the first to deal extensively with the use of the microscope and laid the foundation for modern histology" (Hirsch-Hübotter). This work forms a comprehensive compendium of the history of physical life with comments on the "organization of living nature" and animal nutrition. The large folded tables show listings of the weight ratios of the major parts of the animal brain and eye for numerous species. In addition to the works of H. Steffens, Treviranus occupies an exceptional position in the middle between medicine and philosophy; He, the representative of the development idea influenced by Schelling, succeeds in combining both in a masterly way. Due to the long period of publication, complete copies as here are quite rare.
