IV - OPERA OMNIA

from Section

Summary

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL PREFACE

HARVEY'S chief works in Latin have only twice been printed in a collected form, first by van Kerckhem at Leyden in 1737, and secondly by Bowyer for the Royal College of Physicians in 1766. The latter is an imposing volume with a fine engraved portrait, and worthily enshrines the pious memory of the author. The works had also been printed towards the end of the seventeenth century in two editions of the Bibliotheca Anatomica of Le Clerc and Manget. The volume published by the Sydenham Society in 1847 contains the only collected edition of Harvey's works in English. These were translated by Dr Robert Willis and have already been referred to in the prefaces to the preceding sections. The volumes of 1766 and 1847 were also furnished with lives of the author, and certain minor writings were added at the end.
