The Elements of Anatomy and Physiology by William Ruschenberger (1807 - 1895).

The Elements of Anatomy and Physiology is one in a Series of First Books of Natural History Prepared for the Use of Schools and Colleges. This succinct little textbook from 18522 presents an introduction to the workings of the human body. The information, albeit not current, is still interesting and of use as a general overview of the subject as well as interesting look into the period. Please note that some of the information may have changed considerably since this time. Among other accomplishments, the author was a surgeon with the rank of Commander in the U.S. Navy, president of the Academy of Natural Sciences (1869-1881), and president of the College of Physicians (1869-1883). ( A. Gramour)

    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

Fun little book.
I'd be pleased to read the short introduction and the three glossary sections.
I'd also be glad to PL the rest, if you like.

The format of the pages is unique. The topics appear to be numbered sequentially, and there are similarily-numbered footnoted questions that correspond to these. How do you suggest we read these? Should we save them for the end of the chapter as "wrap-up" questions about the chapter? It sounds a bit peculiar when read immediately after the section of the text, but that would be more in the style of footnotes.

What say you on this?

Hi Jeffery,
I added the notes on that to the opening post now. Please don't read the Questions at the bottom of the pages, the Explanations of the Figures, the Charts, or the numbers he assigns to the points in the lesson. If a chart or additional footnote seems necessary to the explanation of the material, it is fine to include it. Use your best judgement.
Thanks for reminding me about those aspects. I have BCed other books in this series. They are all in the same format.

Got it. That will simplify things. I’ll work on the script in the morning.

Thanks much.
