This paper was read before the Grolier Club in April 1937. It is artistically printed and handsomely illustrated and concerns a great literary figure who was also a physiologist and a philosopher. He was among the first to appreciate the importance of the discovery by William Harvey of the circulation of the blood and he was a strong advocate of that doctrine. The volume is printed in a special edition of only 300 copies and should be a prize to have in the library.
