Originally published in 1946, this book examines the writing and controversy of Jean Fernel's The Natural Part of Medicine, the 1542 publication that attempted to replace Galen's treatise on physiology. Sherrington assesses Fernel's impact on the field of medical writing, and includes multiple plates illustrating early editions of Fernel's treatise and important figures of the day. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in medical history.
