Complete Hand-Written Course Notes for PHYSIOLOGY. Original owner's name, address, date on the inside front cover of this notebook of lined paper. "E. Craighead, Pittsburgh PA, 1897." Notes are bound in a board covered notebook, 5.5" x 9". 89 pages. Includes 17 drawn illustrations, by the student. 8 items have been tipped in, including a booklet titled: Observations of the Brain, Observations on the Sheep's Heart, and other pages from medical pamphlets of the day. E. Craighood was likely a student at Fifth Avenue High School in Pittsburgh when he or she took these notes. The notes cover basic physiology from cells, blood, bone, and muscle, to more advanced body organs such as the heart, lungs nervous system, and stomach. Six of the 17 illustrations are in color and show more complex body functions, such as eye-sight, the circulatory system, and how food is absorbed. Craighead also describes a number of dissections she/he took part in. Condition: Covers are very worn and shaky, leather spine barely holding on, front gutter/hinge completely split. The inner pages are in Very Good condition, one page is disbound, otherwise the pages are tight, bright and clean. The writing is cursive and is sometimes rather light and not easy to decipher, but it is legible throughout. Very interesting document on how American students were taught physiology and the medical sciences in 1897.
