BERTHOLD, Arnold Adolf.
Beiträge zur Anatomie, Zootomie und Physiologie.

pp. VIII, (ii), 265, (i). 9 folding, lithographed plates. Early plain paper wrappers, torn and chipped with some loss, uncut, light foxing throughout, more particularly of the plates, a good copy overall, ex-libris Anatomy School, Cambridge with usual marks of provenance.

*cf. GARRISON-MORTON #1176 reporting Berthold's discovery that transplantation of the testicles of a castrated cockerel to another part of the body would prevent atrophy of the comb, hence evidence of an internal secretion. The above collection of essays includes work on the sea anemone [Actinia], breastbone of birds, the eggs of chickens and the fibrin [sic] of blood.
