"Bernard began work on this, his last book, in 1873 and did not quite finish the final corrections before his death. Utilizing, in part, a series of lectures he had given in 1859-1860, he brought them up to date, performed new experiments where necessary, and added new material to complete the work… Arranged in four parts, the treatise discusses general physiological processes, the techniques and methods used in experimental physiology, physiology of the circulatory system along with experimental pharmacology, and the physiology of the digestive system." [Heirs of Hippocrates]. "In this, his last work, Bernard showed himself 'the unapproachable master in the technique of experimental procedure' (Garrison [History of Medicine, 4th ed., p. 546])." [Garrison and Morton]. PROVENANCE: John G. Spenzer, MD [fl. 1894-1911], was the son of Peter Ignatius Spenzer, MD, "who was largely attributable [for] the founding of the School of Pharmacy at Cleveland." – Orth.
