Oxford, University Press, London, Harvey Milford, 1926, 8°, XII, 146 pp., 16 Abb., OKartBd. One of the scarce copies published in stiff printed wrappers! - FIRST EDITION !"Cushing delivered the three papers in this book as the Cameron Prize Lectures at the University of Edinburgh in October 1925." "The first lecture was entitled »The third circulation and its channels«. In preparing for it he had consulted his colleagues in physiology - Sherrington, Howell, and others - and he complained that none of the existing textbooks of physiology had an adequate account of the cerebrospinal fluid and its movement." "The second lecture, »The pituitary gland as known«, told the story of how, under the stimulus of Edward Sharpey-Schafer, a group of men early in the century had come to study the functions of the pituitary, and how he (H.C.) and Reford in 1907 had come to repeat Paulesco's studies on hypophysectomy. He then summarized developments that had occurred since the publication of the pituitary monograph in 1912. .it is valuable in tracing historical developments in the field." "The third Cameron lecture, »Intracranial tumours and the surgeon«, opened with appreciative allusion to Sir William Macewen, the celebrated Scottish neurosurgeon, and after presenting the historical backgrounds Cushing launched into the subject of tumour classification, giving data on his 1146 verified cases (to 1 September 1925), and then summarized his and Bailey's forthcoming monograph on the gliomas, based on 492 individually studied cases. This lecture has a list of sixty-two papers originating in his clinic." - Very little is known about the founder of these lectures, Andrew Robertson Cameron. He was born in Torland, Aberdeenshire, and completed his medical studies at Edinburgh in 1861. He emigrated to Australia, settled in New South Wales, and died there in 1878." - Heirs of Hippocrates, 1162; Courville No. 526. Fulton, p.522-523; HC 10. Bookseller Inventory #
