De la physiologie générale

Paris: Hachette, 1872. First edition under this title, 8vo, pp. vi, 339, [4]; occasional light pencil marginalia, else a fine copy in later quarter blue morocco over marbled boards, gilt-lettered direct on spine. "In 1866, at the request of the minister of public education, [Bernard] prepared his Rapport sur les progrès et la marche de la physiologie générale en France. The Rapport, which was published on the occasion of the World Exposition of 1867, was to have been an objective, historico-encyclopedic treatment of physiology in France. Bernard used the opportunity, however, to issue a passionate statement of his personal opinions and presented a unified synthetic physiology, founded on the notion of the 'milieu intérieur' and on the regulatory functions that, under the control of the nervous system, maintain the stability of the fluids and the living tissues" (DSB).
