Near Fine in Near Fine dustwrapper. Limited edition of 500 copies. Cloth, 8vo, xvi, 136 pp, plates. From the blurb: "William Harvey's De Motu Cordis (published 1628) marked the birth of modern physiological and biological science, and his writings have therefore acquired an historical importance which places them in a class apart from most of the medical and scientific publications of the 17th century. The second, revised edition of Sir Geoffrey Keynes's Bibliography was published in 1953. Since then an enormous amount of scholarly endeavour has been devoted to its subject, stimulated in part by the celebrations for the tercentenary of Harvey's death in 1957, and the quatercentenary of his birth, in 1978. There have been a number of reprints and new editions of Harvey's works, and three more published works have been added to the canon of his writings. Much new information was incorporated in Keynes's own Life of William Harvey (1966). All these developments have suggested the need for a new edition. For this third edition an entirely new introduction has been written by Dr Gweneth Whitteridge, taking account of the research of the last 30 years, particularly on Harvey's manuscript works. The bibliographical descriptions have been revised, and the prefaces to each section rewritten, by Christine English. The editions of Harvey's works published since 1953 have been added, the details of location of copies have been updated, and the census of copies of the first edition of De Motu Cordis has been revised."
