Nicolai Stenonis de musculis & glandulis observationum specimen cum epistolis duabus anatomicis by Nicolaus Steno( Book )

59 editions published between 1664 and 1683 in 3 languages and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work by the Danish anatomist, geologist, paleontologist, bishop, and saint, Niels Stensen (Nicolaus Steno, 1636-1686), reports observations and discoveries made between 1662 and 1664, from which Stensen drew comprehensive conclusions concerning the structure and function of the muscles. He confirmed that contraction actually occurs in the muscle fibers, not in the tendon as Galen had thought. He attempted a geometrical description of muscle contraction, described the anatomy of the heart and its function as a muscle, and explained the anatomy and function of the respiratory muscles, including the diaphragm. Other discoveries enumerated in Stensen's work include the earwax duct, ducts of the cheek and sublingual glands, and the glandular ducts of the palate and epiglottis. Some of these researches brought Stensen into conflict over priority with his teacher in Amsterdam, Gerard Blasius, causing Stensen to move to the University of Leiden, the city in which this small book was published
