Jonathan Cape Ltd. Very Good/Very Good. 1973. Hard Cover. 8vo 0224006312 Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. Neat inscription. Illustrations. Plates. 288 pages. .Dimensions: 23.6 x 16 x 3.8 cm There is no shortage of irrational or unscientific ideas about the supposed properties of human blood. Mostly these are folk theories which neither survive practical tests nor lend themselves to fruitful application in a modern context. But they still influence our language and customs. As a result, we speak of blood brotherhood and blood-feuds; of the blood of our fathers, blood relations, blood poisoning and sang-froid; of princes of the blood who may own blood-horses, bloodhounds and bloodstones; and of people or ideas which are cold-blooded, blood-curdling, blood-thirsty, bloody-minded, sanguine, clottish or plain bloody stupid.

Do cobwebs staunch bleeding? Is blood alive? Does a woman's blood run through the baby inside her? Is there a difference between the bloods of black and white peoples? How much blood is in you? What did a leech do? What about the miraculous annual liquefaction of the preserved blood of St Januarius, the patron saint of Naples? Do pelicans feed their own blood to their young ones?
