BERNARD, CLAUDE. : Leçons sur la physiologie et la pathologie du système nerveux. ; Paris: J.-B. Baillière, 1858. 2 Vols.Original marbled boards, viii,520; 560pp. With woodcut ills. Fresh & clean copy. First edition. Text of the course on the nervous system given by Claude Bernard (1813-1878) at the Collège de France, where he succeeded François Magendie as professor of medicine.French physiologist known chiefly for his discoveries concerning the role of the pancreas in digestion, the glycogenic function of the liver, and the regulation of the blood supply by the vasomotor nerves. On a broader stage, Bernard played a role in establishing the principles of experimentation in the life sciences, advancing beyond the vitalism and indeterminism of earlier physiologists to become one of the founders of experimental medicine. His most seminal contribution was his concept of the internal environment of the organism, which led to the present understanding of homeostasis--i.e., the self-regulation of vital processes.,,mbgfebF0..~$2400
