First Edition, 4to, volume one [all published], [iv], 72pp., with advert leaf, 15 engraved plates, occasional light foxing, recent half calf. Sir Busick Harwood was Professor of Anatomy in the University of Cambridge from 1785 to 1814 and simultaneously Downing Professor of Medicine from 1800 to 1814. "He demonstrated the transfusion of blood from sheep to blood-depleted dogs under differing experimental conditions. Student annotated copies of the synopsis record relevant comments from all fields of medicine and indicate that Harwood possessed an extensive knowledge of contemporary medical research. Having failed to get attendance at lectures and dissections made compulsory, Harwood gave up public dissections because nobody came to them. In 1796 he published 'A System of Comparative Anatomy and Physiology', volume 1, dealing with the brain and sense organs, particularly the olfactory organ, suggesting that their development in different animals was affected by their dependence on a sense of smell to find food. He received no encouragement to continue this work." (ODNB). A second, projected volume was never published. A scarce work. Russell, British Anatomy, 392. N° de ref. de la librería 26676
