Elements of physiology by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach( )
26 editions published between 1795 and 1895 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The want of a new and complete system of physiology has been long and very sensibly experienced and regretted by all medical students on this side the Atlantic. As to myself, I am sure I was led most devoutly to regret such a want, throughout every stage of my medical studies. In order to acquire a knowledge of the improvements which had lately taken place in this important branch of physical science, I was obliged to range with an infinitude of labour and attention, through daily accumulating volumes, which it was sometimes extremely difficult to procure. This difficulty was augmented even to impossibility itself with those unfortunately living out of the sphere of public libraries. The mutilated abridgment of Haller's physiology, published in the English language, is (to life a common mode of expression) certainly nothing more than a bare apology for a system. It is imperfect, erroneous, and, in many places, to me wholly unintelligible. In some parts, therefore, it no doubt inculcates truth, in others implants the seeds of error, and in other places again leaves the young mind at liberty to indulge itself in all the wildness and revelry of conjecture. For these deficiencies and faults, I am sure that at least some compensation is made, and some degree of remedy provided in the following sheets, which I am about to usher forth to the world"--Preface.

The anthropological treatises of Johann Friedrich Blumenbach by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach( Book )
27 editions published between 1865 and 2005 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Works of Blumenbach edited in this volume are the first and third or last edition of his famous Treatise On the Natural Variety of Mankind; which were published in 1775 and 1795 respectively: the Contributions to Natural History, in two parts; and a slight notice of three skulls which appeared in the Gottingische gelehrte Anzeigen of Nov. 1833, only remarkable for being the last printed utterance of the author. Two Memoirs of Blumenbach have been prefixed, which contain together almost everything of interest concerning the circumstances of his life. I have also added an account of his once famous anthropological collection, written by his successor, now himself lately deceased, Professor Rudolph Wagner, one of the original Honorary Fellows of the Anthropological Society, London. Blumenbach has related in the little autobiographical fragment, which has been incorporated by Marx in his memoir, the causes which led to his selection of an anthropological subject as the thesis for his doctoral dissertation"--Preface.
