lyn45170

London, W. Bulmer and Co., 1809. 4to. No wrappers as extracted from "Philosophical Transactions" 1809 - Part I. Pp. 1-31. With titlepage to 1809, part I. Clean and fine, wide-margined.. ¶ First appearance of an importent paper by "The father of physiological optics". In this memoir Young studied, as perhaps the first, the blood circulation and the function of the heart from a hydrodynamic standpoint, and he predicted that there exist a relationship between arterieal stiffness and pulse wave velocity, a relation which was only confirmed much later.

"In this lecture from 1808 (the item offered) he discusseas the properties of the circulatory system from a remarkkably modern standpoint. His work exerts significant influence on the subsequent studies of the Weber brothers." (Gedeon. Science and Texhnology in Medicine No. 44.8).
