Comments: Two works by the celebrated Italian physician and professor of theoretical medicine at Padua. The first is his treatise on the generation of parasites of man, part of his important research that supported Francesco Redi's attack on the doctrine of spontaneous generation. A man of wide scientific interests, Vallisnieri also made fundamental contributions to embryology, parasitology, geology and comparative anatomy. His second work, in fact, is an atlas of the dissected brain of an ox. "In comparison with contemporary scientific thought, Vallisnieri's work has a very modern character. Following...the way opened by Galileo...and Francis Bacon...he rejected Scholastic knowledge and trusted solely in direct observation and in experiments". He considered man to be related to animals and his remarkable ideas on this subject were forerunners of evolutionary concepts. DSB XIII 564. Blake, p. 468. Hirsch V 699. Biog. Med. VII 394.

Wow - This is amazing - the book arrived in the post this morning! It was quicker for your book to get from New York to New Zealand, than the two books I ordered from Australia at the same time! Many thanks for that - I know it was sent by cheapest post (at my request) but somewhere along the line I got lucky. Love the book by the way - and it arrived here in such perfect condition I could almost think no one has even touched it before... - Anne W.
