First Edition, American issue of PMM 397 (citing imaginary New Haven: Yale University Press, 1906 imprint) and Garrison-Morton 1432. xvi, 411 pp; 85 figs. Original cloth. Signature of former owner on front flyleaf, else Near Fine. A British issue was published in London by Archibald Constable. Silliman Lectures. The verso of the half-title of the Scribner's issue lists the three Silliman lectures to that point (by J. J. Thomson; C. S. Sherrington; E. Rutherford). The verso of the half-title of the Constable issue is blank. The verso of the title page of the Scribner's issue says 'Copyright, 1906, by Yale University. Published October, 1906. The University Press, Cambridge, U.S.A.' The verso of the title page of the Constable issue says 'Copyright, 1906, by Yale University for the United States of America and Great Britain. Printed at the University Press, John Wilson and Son Cambridge, U.S.A.' Dawson's catalogue 214 (February 1971) states that publishing records show the Constable issue was published in October 1906, whereas the Scribner's issue was not published until December 8, 1906, and thus it is claimed that the British issue is the true first edition. 'This work stands as the true foundation of modern neurophysiology; it is considered by Fulton to rank in importance with Harvey's De Motu Cordis' (Garrison's History of Neurology, p. 229). 'The creative energy of Sherrington, who probably did more to influence thought in modern medicine than any other Englishman since William Harvey, has been attributed to his broad humanism. He was a book collector, a poet, and a polished writer with a wide knowledge of classical languages and literature, of general history, and especially of the history of art. From Sherrington's comprehensive studies, and particularly those carried out on monkeys and the higher apes, there emerged the vast sweep of present-day knowledge of neurophysiology--the nature of the knee-jerk, reciprocal innervation of motor areas, focal epilepsy, the proprioceptive system, and finally the broad concepts of 'the final common pathway' and the 'integrative action of the nervous system' ' (Fulton & Wilson, Selected Readings in the History of Physiology, p. 306). Grolier, Medicine 90. Norman 1939. Heirs of Hippocrates 2198. Charles S. Sherrington: Nobel Prize, Medicine or Physiology, 1932 (shared with Edgar Adrian), 'for their discoveries regarding the functions of neurons.'. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 18752
