About this Item

8vo. [6], ii, 504 pp. 244 text figs., index. Contemporary quarter brown calf over marbled boards, gilt-stamped spine title; extremities rubbed, corners showing. Rubber ownership stamp applied to title- and dedication pages. Very good. FIRST EDITION. "This book, dedicated to Charcot, is one of Marie's most important contributions. It consists of thirty-eight lectures given at the Faculty of Medicine during 1891. Marie discusses normal anatomy, clinical symptoms and particularly the underlying pathology of many forms of spinal cord disease. In the preface he states that he has not tried to cover all such diseases, but only the more usual forms, and those he has tried to treat in a complete manner. The many illustrations are useful adjuncts to the descriptions of such conditions as insular sclerosis (multiple sclerosis), infantile paralysis (anterior poliomyelitis), tabes, ascending paralysis, and familial degenerative changes." [Heirs of Hippocrates]. Provenance: Henri de Rothschild, Bibliotheque Medicale. Believed to be the Baron Henri James of Rothschild (1872-1947), a prominent bibliophile, doctor, playwright and prolific author. Haymaker & Schiller, Founders of neurology, p. 476; Heirs of Hippocrates 2153; Waller 6253. cf. Garrison & Morton 4665, 4740. Bookseller Inventory # M10904
