Full calf. A collection of dissertations on surgical theory and practice by various authors, compiled by the Swiss anatomist, sometimes referred to as the 'father of modern physiology'. Garrison-Morton, in describing other works, said of Haller: 'Haller was one of the most imposing figures in the whole of medicine, besides being a superb bibliographer and the founder of medical bibliography. As a physiologist he was the greatest of his time. Many apparently 'new' discoveries of later times had already been accounted for by Haller... He is said to have written more than 1300 scientific papers.' (Garrison-Morton 585, 588).
