Comments: The Pars Prima of the Adversaria first appeared in 1706, and "earned Morgagni international fame as an anatomist", with publication of the subsequent 5 parts taking place by 1719. The first part is "a series of researches on fine anatomy conducted according to the tradition established by Malpighi... Morgagni's book actually records a whole succession of discoveries regrading minute organic mechanisms, including the glands of the trachea, of the male urethra, and of the female genitals. These represent new contributions to the mechanical interpretation of the structure of the organism, as do the descriptions in the five subsequent Adversaria" -- D.S.B. 9, 511. This is the most complete edition of the work, and the last published during the author's lifetime. Each of the 6 parts have separate title pages but continuous pagination. Several errors in pagination. Blake, p. 312.
