Lehrbuch der Psychiatrie auf klinischer Grundlage für practische Ärzte und Studirende. 3 vols. in 1, 8vo. xii, 276; x, 214; xvi, 203 [1]pp. Stuttgart: Friedrich Enke, 1879-1880. 233 x 158 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards, somewhat rubbed. Light browning, occasional foxing, edges of one leaf frayed, but very good. Ownership signature and stamp on front endpaper. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 4940. Krafft-Ebing was an adherent of Wilhelm Griesinger's school of "brain psychiatry," which held that psychic disturbances were to be classed among the organic brain diseases. He believed heredity and degeneration to be the primary etiological factors in psychic diseases. Krafft-Ebing is best remembered today for his studies in the field of legal psychiatry and sexual pathology (see G-M 1748 & 4944), and for establishing the relationship between syphilis and general paralysis of the insane.
