The Life of William Harvey, Keynes, Geoffrey
4 Keynes, Geoffrey The Life of William Harvey
London Oxford University Press 1966 019858119X / 9780198581192 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Red cloth hardcover. Dust a bit sunfaded and has tear to the fold. Now covered in mylar cover. William Harvey (1 April 1578 – 3 June 1657)[2] was an English physician who made seminal contributions in anatomy and physiology. He was the first known physician to describe completely, and in detail, the systemic circulation and properties of blood being pumped to the brain and body by the heart. Harvey was a prominent sceptic regarding allegations of witchcraft. He was one of the examiners of four women from Lancashire accused of witchcraft in 1634, and as a consequence of his report, all of them were acquitted.[16][17] Earlier, in 1632, while travelling with the King to Newmarket, he had been sent to investigate a woman accused of being a witch. Initially he told her that he was a wizard and had come to discuss the Craft with her, and asked whether she had a familiar. She put down a saucer of milk and called to a toad which came out and drank the milk. He then sent her out to fetch some ale, and killed the toad and dissected it, concluding that it was a perfectly ordinary animal and not supernatural in any way. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 502 pages

Philomel 1980 0399207562 / 9780399207563 First Edition; Fourteenth Printing Hardcover As New in As New dust jacket Illustrated by Tasha Tudor Signed by Author & Illustrator
Yellow cover. Dust and book look new. Dust in mylar cover. Signed by Ms. Tudor under animal on end paper. Signed in full Tasha Tudor. Tasha Tudor (August 28, 1915 – June 18, 2008) was an American illustrator and author of children's books. Tasha Tudor was born in Boston, Massachusetts as Starling Burgess. She was originally named after her father, the naval architect W. Starling Burgess, known as "the Skipper". As he was an admirer of the War and Peace character Natasha, his daughter was soon re-christened, and the name was eventually shortened to Tasha.When socializing with her mother's friends, Tudor was usually introduced as "Rosamund Tudor's daughter, Tasha", leading others to believe that her last name was Tudor. Liking the sound of it, she adopted the name and eventually changed her surname legally following her first divorce.[2] She married Thomas McCready in 1938 in Redding, Connecticut. Tasha and Thomas McCready purchased a large old farm in Webster, New Hampshire, where four children, Bethany, Seth, Thomas, and Efner, were raised. Her first story, Pumpkin Moonshine, was published in 1938, as a gift for a young niece of her husband. They were divorced in 1961, and her children legally changed their names from McCready to Tudor. A later marriage, to Allan John Woods, lasted only a brief time.[3]Tasha Tudor illustrated nearly one hundred books, the last being Corgiville Christmas, released in 2003. Several were collaborative works with a New Hampshire friend Mary Mason Campbell. Tudor lived in Marlboro, Vermont in a house copied from that of other New Hampshire friends Donn & Doris Purvis. Her son Seth built the replication and lives next door with his family. It is documented in Drawn from New England, and in The Private World of Tasha Tudor. Mother and son worked closely on family endeavors. Rare. ; Illustrations; 0.5 x 8 x 6.8 Inches; 24 pages; Signed by Author & Illustrator
