A later edition of the work first published in 1747, by one of the greatest physiologists of all time and the founder of medical bibliography. Written to replace as a physiology text his outdated transcripts of Boerhaave's Institutiones medicae, this work "enjoyed great popularity for many years." (--D.S.B.) It includes his resonance theory similar to that propounded a century later by Helmholtz. (G/M 585, first ed.)
