Text is generally very good with scarce marginal or gutter small foxing spots. Provenance: Book plate of C. B. Farrar and his signature on fep with dates 1904 (Parts 1-4)& 1907 (Part 5). Ramón y Cajal continued his histological studies after training under Dr. Maestre. Hn 1887 Cajal first saw examples of Golgi s silver stain.[and] immediately began to use his modification of the Golgi stain and obtained fascinating results by use of nervous tissue from embryos. Her the nerve cells and their processes stood out completely without interference from nyelinated fibers, revealing.the whole composition of the cortical gray matter. Cajal devoted untiring effort to the elucidating of the histological anatomy of the nervous system. In 1889 he presented his silver-stained specimens to the German Anatomical Congress in Berlin. Here his genius was immediately recogniaed by Kölliker. Cajal found evidence from his studies on nerve cells and fibers in the cerebellum that the nervous impulse was transmitted from one cell to another cell by contact and did not pass into a reticular network as proposed by Golgi. Cajal ultimately established that the dendrites in general receive impulses from other cells. These are then transmitted through the nerve cell via the axon to still other cells. This theory was immediately accepted by van Gehuchten and Kölliker and was recognized as one of the fundamental concepts underlying the function of the nervous system for which he was co-awarded the Nobel Prize for physiology and medicine in 1906. (Garrison s Hist. Neur. p.168-69).Dr. Clarence B. Farrar [1874-1970] "trained under several of the foremost medical scholars of his era beginning with Osler and then at Heidelberg under Kraepelin, Nissl and Alzheimer. Farrar was hand- picked by Prof. Charles Clarke, the University's inaugural head for Psychiatry, to succeed him in both that chair and as the first Director of the Toronto Psychiatric Hospital (TPH) opening in 1925. Farrar served in those capacities until 1947. Bookseller Inventory # 0000705
