Description
 
Jole Shackelford (au). Harvey is renowned as the discoverer of the circulation of the blood & the function of the heart. He established a new approach to reaching scientific conclusions based on experiments as proof -- the approach commonly practiced today.

Details how political, religious, & cultural events shaped Harvey’s life; his professional rise to become personal physician to kings resulted in his dismissal & a huge fine when Parliament overthrew the Crown. Reveals how this diligent scientist became a pioneer of modern medicine. Juvenile audiences. Illustrated.
