Garrison-Morton 1402; Heirs of Hippocrates 1036; McHenry, Garrison's History of Neurology, p. 172; Haymaker, Founders of Neurology, pp. 55-58. RARE FIRST EDITION of Luys' first and most important book on his research studies of the nervous system in which he depicted the two structures which bear his name: the subthalamic nucleus and the centre médian of the thalamus.
Luys (1828-1897), chief of service at the Salpétrière and Charité in Paris, later director of the Maison de Santé Esquirol at Ivry-sur-Seine, found his metier in the problems of the structure and connections of the brain. "He was the first to portray the internal nuclei and tracts of the brain in three-dimensional visualizations. He was an excellent draughtsman, and his reconstructions were founded on carefully made drawings of sections through all parts of the brain." (Haymaker). - Visit our website to see more images!
