About this Item

Gall, Franz Joseph (1758-1828) & Spurzheim, Johann Caspar (1776-1832). Sur les fonctions du cerveau et sur celles de chacune de ses parties. . . . 8vo. Multi-vol. text, each vol. with own title. Paris: l'Auteur. . . , 1822-25. 6 vols. 214 x 135 mm. Gilt red boards c. 1825, uncut. Fine set. edition, revised, of the Anatomie et physiologie du systeme nerveux(1810-19) which introduced the theory of localization of cerebral function. See Garrison-Morton 1389. This new edition in reduced format was revised by Gall without the collaboration of Spurzheim. The volumes(except vol. 3) bear the AUTOGRAPH SIGNATURE of Gall on the versos of their half-titles to protect against pirated editions. In order to hold the price down Gall did not republish the magnificent folio-sized plates of the first edition for the second, and he deleted the portion on the descriptive anatomy of the brain and nervous system, concentrating on the physiology. In the sixth volume, however, Gall discussed the treatises on neuroanatomy and neurophysiology published between 1819 and 1825 as a way of answering the criticisms of his work by such authors as Flourens.
