London:: Oxford University Press, 1925., 1925. 8vo. ix, , 227,  pp. Red blind- and black-stamped cloth, gilt-stamped spine; one corner of joint reinforced with kozo. Pages generally quite clean. Very good. With a biographical memoir of Jackson, by James Taylor (1859-1946), and "recollections" of Sir Jonathan Hutchinson and Charles Mercier. Jackson was an English Neurologist, best known for his research on epilepsy. / "For most of Jackson's ideas it is impossible to indicate in a brief summary either their breadth and subtlety or the rich accumulation of diverse clinical phenomena supporting them… / Although acclaimed as the greatest British scientific clinician of the nineteenth century, he carried out no experiments and rarely employed the microscope; but he was acutely aware of their importance and was widely read in the literature. He was devoted to clinical observation, to the analysis of facts, and to philosophic reasoning. / Thus armed, Jackson profoundly influenced all of the neurological sciences. He applied the data of abnormal functioning to the elucidation of the normal action of the nervous system. Jackson's creed was as follows: 'I should be misunderstood if I were supposed to underrate the physiological study of disease of the nervous system. Indeed, I think that to neglect it shows want of education, but to neglect the clinical shows want of experience and sagacity. Never forget that we may run the risk of being over-educated and yet under-cultivated.' This approach remains acceptable today." – DSB VII, p. 47.
