Comments: Pascoli's oft-reprinted anatomical work, bound with Baglivi's important treatise on the structure of muscle fibers and the properties of saliva, bile, and blood. Baglivi, a student of Malpighi, and the physician who performed the autopsy on the latter, was the first to distinguish between smooth and striated muscles. This work, in the form of a letter to Pascoli, was first published in 1700 and made its author "one of the most important students of muscle physiology before Albrecht von Haller." (DSB).
