A short history of medicine by Charles Singer( Book )

46 editions published between 1928 and 1962 in English and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great progress made in medicine and the medical sciences during the earlier part of the twentieth century is treated in some detail because I feel that for the student of medicine and the medical sciences these researches form a bridge between his current studies and advances made in the more distant past. Thirty years ago these researches were discussed in the larger textbooks of medicine and the medical sciences, but in the current textbooks they have had to make room for more recent work. It seems desirable that the student of medicine should appreciate the continuous evolution of the subjects which he is compelled to study

A short history of science to the nineteenth century by Charles Singer( Book )

Driven by an unquenchable thirst, the human spirit seeks an explanation of the world. In this fascinating study, a noted historian of science traces the course of the ceaseless yearning for answers across two and a half millennia and chronicles, in simple form, the development of the idea of a rational and interconnected material world. This account begins with the earliest recordings of true science among the Ionian Greeks and proceeds to detail the development of unitary systems of thought among Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, and others. Examinations of the science of imperial Rome {u2015} including Roman mathematics, astronomy, physics, and calendarial science {u2015} give rise to the science of the Middle Ages and the influence of Scholasticism, the rise of humanism, and the reawakened scientific spirit of the early Renaissance. These developments in turn led to the downfall of Aristotelian science in the seventeenth century, the Galilean revolution, Newtonian mathematical physics, and finally, the enthronement of determinism in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Profusely illustrated with maps and diagrams, this comprehensive yet concise volume offers an absorbing, readable history of science up to the dawn of the modern era
Newton by Peter Ackroyd( Book )

13 editions published in 1938 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I have long been impressed by the fact that Isaac Newton, besides being the greatest of scientific geniuses, was also one of the most singular and fascinating characters of which we have any record. This Life of Isaac Newton is an attempt to exemplify this point of view. The conception of Newton here worked out was first published by me in the Isaac Newton bi-centenary article which appeared in the Times Literary Supplement in 1927"--Prefatory note

On anatomical procedures; the later books by Galen( Book )

42 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Galen was probably the greatest medical writer of antiquity and certainly the most prolific. His Anatomical Procedures (c. 200 CE) emobides the results of a lifetime of practical research; it is largely based on verbatim notes of lectures delivered during actual demonstrations of dissection. The work comprises fifteen books, of which only the first eight-and-a-halft have survived in the original Greek. An Arabic translation of the complete work has survived, however, and this has made possible the translation of the final six-and-a-half books (parts of book 9 and books 10-15). Duckworth's translation was originall made from a German translation of 1906, but for this 1962 edition it was revised by Lyons, working directly from the Arabic text, with the co-operation of Towers. Modern names for the parts of the body are inserted in brackets, and an anatomical index is supplied."--Back cover
