Springfield:: Charles C. Thomas, 1933., 1933. 8vo. , 98,  pp. Frontis. portrait, 6 plates, 8 facsimile plates. Blue gilt-stamped cloth; gilt fading. Slight page darkening p. 24. Very good. Facsimile edition of the 1603 original. "Fabricius, teacher of Harvey at Padua, discovered the venous valves, and illustrated them in life-size copperplates in this monograph. He failed to recognize their true function, however, considering this to be merely a delaying of the blood flow. This work must have influenced Harvey to turn his experimental efforts toward an accurate explanation for the existence of the venous valves. This line of research eventually led him to develop an accurate knowledge of how the circulation worked. Facsimile edition, with English translation, edited by K. J. Franklin, 1933." – See: Garrison and Morton 757.
