(On the) motion of the heart and blood in animals by William Harvey ( )
28 editions published between 1889 and 2005 in English and held by 1,541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The circulation of the blood within the vertebrate body and its maintenance by the action of the heart, a discovery with which the name of Harvey will be forever linked, has come to occupy an especially sacred niche in the history of science. Its unique status has been ascribed to the belief that with a few simple questions Harvey challenged the time-honored Church-sanctioned authorities of Aristotle and Galen, and with the aid of experiments established the circulation as a scientific truth, thereby placing the experimental method in biology and medicine upon a firm foundation. The facts, as they actually unfold, are more informative than the legend of villain and hero that history tends to construct in response to man's love of fable and parable, in religion as well as in history, in politics as well as in social or intellectual theory"--Book.
