He departed from the usal practice of including physiology with anatomy. The book was very popular in German medical schools, and Meckel considered it Soemmerring's best work. It includes a very full list of what Soemmerring considered his anatomical discoveries." - A work which opened new paths in anatomy and physiology! - "Soemmering's handbook of human anatomy, 'Vom Baue des menschlichen Körpers' was based as far as possible on his own observations and was conceived as a supplement to Haller's 'Primae linae physiologiae', the work was still in use in expanded form a half century later. The foreword to the first edition reveals Soemmering's preoccupation with the use of clear, unmistakable terminology. It also contains an impressive list of his anatomical discoveries, although not all of them have proved to be valid. Among those that are still accepted, two of the most remarkable are the observation that arterial trunks always lie on the bent side of the joints and the discovery that the small part of the trigeminal nerve always lies against the third branch." Erich Hintzsche, DSB XII, 510. - "The most important work is the 'Vom Baue des menschlichen Körpers', the keynotes of which are accuracy, lucidity and precision." Mettler - "Die deskriptive Anatomie .. in dem Handbuch von Soemmering den Niederschlag aller Vollkomenheit (erreicht).." Toply, Geschichte der Medizin - - Garrison & Morton No 400
