Publisher: Paris: C. Reinwald, 1895, Paris
Publication Date: 1895
Edition: First Edition
FIRST EDITION. Large 8 vo. Orig. cloth. xiv, (2), 878 pp. Text figs. The COPY of the Göttingen cytologist, G. Berthold (1854-1937), with his ownership signature on the half-title. In 1886, Berthold published 'Studien über protoplasma-mekanik' which Delage considers in detail on pages 491 to 493. Cloth with edge wear, uniformly lightly browned; a good to very good copy. Among his many achievements in zoology, anatomy, and physiology, Delage (1854-1920) is credited with establishing a new conception in the physiology of the inner ear: the semicircular canals stabilize equilibrium. After many studies in pure zoology, Delage moved on to general biology and biomechanics. "He now investigated the causes of the manifestations of life in the cell, in the individual, and in the species, considering this area more productive of important results. The book 'La structure du protoplasma.' (1895) marks the turning point of his scientific career." (D.S.B.). Like his laboratory research, this massive book is highly systematic, very thorough, and rich in detailed citations to the literature. Cole Lib. II.80. Bookseller Inventory # 000056
