Observationes anatomicae, quibus varia oris, oculorum & narium vasa describuntur, novique salivae, lacrymarum & muci fontes deteguntur.
Leyde, J. Chouet, 1662. ____ Illustré par 3 planches dépliantes. Une charnière fendillée. Bon exemplaire.***** First edition. Stensen stated that the true purpose of the glands was to secrete fluid. "This discovery led Stensen to consider every fluid in the body as a glandular secretion. He then found a series of glands furnishing fluid to each of the body cavities. He likewise sought the afferent and efferent ducts of secretion. Stensen still used the name "lymph" for all watery glandular secretions, because he was not yet able to differentiate between them and to specify them chemically and physiologically. In the course of this basic research Stensen presented in his Leiden dissertation new discoveries of glands in the cheeks; beneath the tongue; and in the palate, whose structure of veins, arteries, nerves, and lymph vessels he also described. In his Observationes anatomicae (1662), dealing with his new discoveries concerning the glands, he described the lachrymal apparatus in great detail." DSB 13, 33. Garrisson & Morton 973. Norman 2010. In-12. Collation : (12), 108 pp., 3 planches hors-texte. Veau beige, dos à nerfs. (Reliure du XIXe.).
