Book Description University Press,1926., Cambridge:, 1926. 2 volumes. 8vo. xiv, 549; xxxiii, 430 pp. Illus. indices; volume 1 binding cords broken at pages 320-321. Green silver stamped cloth; hinge repaired, volume 1 cover stained, extremities worn. Fair. FIRST EDITION. "Head defined aphasia as a disturbance in the ability to form and express symbols and recognized four such forms of disturbance; verbal (defect in the ability to form words); syntactical (defect in balance and rhythm of speech); nominal (inability to use names); and semantic (loss of ability to recognize the meaning and intent of words). He devised a series of tests to determine how speech functions deteriorate into aphasia." [Norman]. "The most important work on the subject in the English language." [Garrison & Morton]. "Head's final study was one of degeneration, a project made all the more poignant and fascinating by the fact it was, in part, his own degeneration that he was to be studying. As Parkinson's Disease worked away at his own faculties of speech he combined his knowledge of neurology with his intensive war studies on defects of speech produced by brain injuries to produce two large volumes under the title Aphasia and Kindred Disorders of Speech (1926). These volumes were devoted not only to the clinical or symptomatic aspects of disturbances of speech, but were also an attempt to investigate the psychical processes concerned therein, and the physiological integrations necessary for the comprehension and expression of ideas as language." â" Wikipedia. Garrison & Morton 4633; McHenry pp. 361-2; Norman 1032. Seller Inventory # M12361
