The Circulation of the Blood.—The Veins
R L B
History of Science, Physiology, Genius, Anatomy
The writer responds to the claims of an earlier correspondent respecting the probability of the circulation of the blood having been known to the author of Ecclesiastes. He asks: 'Is not your correspondent aware that modern physiologists all allow that the ancients were acquainted with that fluid having motion, and which they compared to the tides of the sea?' The writer also seeks to correct an anatomical error in the earlier letter.
