The Life of William Harvey, Keynes, Geoffrey
5 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
