Fascinating account, long a classic of science, of how Harvey's theory of the circulation of the blood came into being — long admired as a model of accurate observation, careful experimentation and notation, and logical deduction. Reproduces the English translation made during Harvey's lifetime.
A biography of the famous Hopi potter whose work revitalized traditional pottery by integrating contemporary design into prehistoric ceramics. Nampeyo (1860-1942), although acknowledged as a preeminent artist, suffered the romantic myth making of outsiders because she spoke no English and lived according to tribal culture. Independent researcher Kramer goes to the source to discover the woman, interviewing family members and examining accounts to paint a portrait that is vividly sensitive to the real life and artistry of Nempeyo. The volume includes 16 color plates and numerous black and white photographs of both the artist, her family, and pottery. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
