Francois Magendie; Pioneer in Experimental Physiology and Scientific Medicine in XIX Century France.
by [MAGENDIE, Francois] OLMSTEAD, James Monroe Duncan (1886-1956).
New York:: Schuman's, 1944., 1944. 8vo. xvi, 3-290 pp. Frontispiece, 4 plates, index. Brown gilt-stamped cloth; minor rubbing. Rubber-stamp "Review Copy", publisher's review copy (mounted label). Pasted label of pelican. Very good. Olmstead is "credited with outstanding achievement in his studies of the history of physiology and especially in four enjoyable and authoritative biographies of Magendie, Claude Bernard, and Brown-Sequard" (Evans, 1956, Science, "J.M. Olmstead, Physiologist and Historian" Vol. 124, ISS. 3218, p. 395). Magendie's legacy is one of cruelty regarding his strident defense of live vivisection as a teaching tool. He may be the only individual condemned for his actions by Charles Darwin, Aldous Huxley, and Albert Einstein.
