MAGNUS, [Heinrich] G[ustav].
Ueber das Absorptionsvermögen des Bluts für Sauerstoff.

pp. (177)-206. New cloth, some foxing, else a very good copy.

* 'On the oxygen absorption capacity of the blood'. See GARRISON-MORTON #929 for Magnus's paper in 1837, demonstrating the first quantitative analysis of blood gases. In that paper he proved that arterial blood contains a higher concentration of oxygen than venous blood and that the latter had a higher carbon dioxide content. The above paper continues this work.
