Notes of lectures on ?physiology,? given at Univ. College . . . session 1859-60
London, 1859-1860. Sharpey, William (1802-80). Notes of lectures on ?physiology,? given at Univ. College . . . session 1859-60. Manuscript notes and drawings in the hand of a student, Thomas F. H. Green. 4 unnumbered leaves, 361 numbered pages, approximately 100 blank pages at the end. [London,] 1859-60. 227 x 189 mm. 19th century half leather, marbled boards, rebacked in cloth, light wear, original plain gray wrappers bound in. Very good. Small stamp of the Birmingham Medical Institute on 2 or 3 leaves. Sharpey was appointed professor of anatomy and physiology at University College in 1836; he was the first to teach a complete course of physiology and minute anatomy at an English medical school. He was the author of two classic papers on cilia and ciliary motion (see Garrison-Morton 600 and 603) and discovered the ?fibers of Sharpey? in bone tissue (see Garrison-Morton 545); he also edited the fifth through eighth editions of Jones Quain?s Elements of Anatomy. Through his pupils Sharpey was the founder of the British school of physiology; his students included Michael Foster, first professor of physiology at Cambridge University, and John Burdon-Sanderson, the first to occupy the Waynflete Chair of Physiology at Oxford. These lecture notes cover the blood, tissues of the body, vascular system, digestive system, respiration, brain and nervous system, organs of special senses and reproduction. The notes are written on rectos only; several versos contain neatly executed drawings in ink or pencil, many illustrating aspects of microanatomy.
