About the Authors
  • First published in 1925, this two-volume work deals with the blood's role in respiration. This second volume deals with haemoglobin as a chemical substance. The text is illustrated with diagrams and drawings relating to, among other things, haemoglobin's specificity, its manufacture in the body and how it is affected by temperature changes. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of medicine or in haematology.
