Memoire sur la deglutition de l'air atmospherique. Offprint
Mémoire sur la déglutition de l’air atmosphérique. Lu à l’Institut, le 25 octobre 1813. 8vo. 12pp. [Paris:] Migneret, n.d. Unbound. 213 x 137 mm. Minor foxing and toning but very good.
Probably the First Separate Edition. Olmsted does not record this work, citing only Magendie’s additional notes on swallowing air published in 1815. This paper forms part of Magendie’s study of the mechanics of vomiting: “He was correct in assuming the essential passivity of the stomach during vomiting and the swallowing of air as its inevitable accompaniment” (Olmsted, p. 55).
