About This Item

London: printed for the Sydenham Society, 1851. First English edition of each title; 8vo, pp. [iii]-xii, xv, [1], 463, [1]; 20th century green cloth, black cloth label lettered in gilt on spine; very good and sound, but lacking the half-title. "Unzer was probably the first to employ the word `reflex' in connection with sensory-motor reactions" (Garrison-Morton 1457). "Prochaska introduced the idea of a `sensorium commune' in the central nervous system, the function of which is the reflection to the motor nerves of sensory impressions received by the brain" (GM 1386, citing the Prague 1780-84 edition).
