Later edition. Included in the present volume is the author's tracts on earthquakes, the tarantula and the text of his Praxis Medica. Baglivi (1668-1707) was a distinguished Italian physician and experimenter on muscular physiology. As the founder of "solidism" (which refers all changes to charges in the solid parts of the body), he claimed that acids alone possess vital properties and can be the seat of pathological phenomena.
