"Like Vesalius and Paracelsus he did not hesitate to thrust aside ignorance or superstition if it stood in his way (...) invented new surgical instruments, made amputation what it is today by reintroducing the ligature (...) introduced massage, artificial limbs, artificial eyes (...) In dentistry he introduced reimplation of the teeth, and his little treatise on medical jurisprudence, was the first work of consequence on this Subject" (Garrison/ Morton). Profusely illustrated, with fascinating sections on artificial limbs and monsters. All Dutch editions are very rare.

= The most desirable of the four editions that were published in 1672 (two 4to editions (one publ. in Oxford (the first issue (as our copy)), one in London (second issue)) and two 8vo editions). DSB XIV, pp.404-409; Garrison/ Morton 1544, 4793; Norman Collection 2244: "Willis' anatomical and clinical study 'On the Soul of brutes' is based upon a matured version of his theory of the soul, a refutation of Cartesian theory. Unlike Descartes, Willis believed that man has two souls, an immortal and uniquely human rational soul, and a mortal animal soul shared by all members of the animal kingdom. In his discussion of the sensitive soul Willis recapitulated the neurological concepts he had introduced in 'Cerebri anatome' [1664], particularly localization, and extended them to invertebrates with some of the first detailed dissections made of the oyster, earthworm and lobster. He attributed a wide range of diseases to neurological disturbances, among the headache, lethargy, melancholy, apoplexy, frenzy and paralysis, but recognized the difference between the symptoms of organic brain disease and those of mental illness, which he attributed to disordered animal spirits. He gave what is probably the first account of general paralysis of the insane... and described the auditory phenomenon now known as 'paracusis of Willis' in his chapter on hearing...'. Provenance: Dr. J.M.W. Baumann (1766-1849, Germany, Trebsen (Leipsic)) (bookplate on upper pastedown) and J.N. Ramaer (1817-1887) (owner's entry on first free endpaper). The latter was a psychiatrist at mental institutions in Zutphen and Delft, (co-)founder of the NVP (Dutch Society for Psychiatry), and the NMG (Dutch Society for Medicine). The library of Ramaer was bequeathed to the NVP, from where it found its way into the library of the Royal Dutch Society for Medicine. The present owner acquired the Willis at an unpublicized sale in 1972 of books from the library of the Provinciaal Ziekenhuis Santpoort, where the collection had been housed since 1932.
