Philadelphia:: W. B. Saunders, 1933., 1933. 8vo. , 11-349 pp. 116 figures, index. Green gilt-stamped cloth; worn, corners showing. Ex-library copy, rubber-stamp on title. Good. Freeman's most famous book is the 1942 Psychosurgery, authored jointly with James W. Watts. They jointly "performed the first prefrontal leucotomy in the United States in September 1936."[Heirs of Hippocrates 2334]. Although not directly discussed in this work [he does discuss "general paralysis of the insane (paresis)" pp. 195-215+], Freeman is notorious as a leading proponent of lobotomies in America. He performed nearly 3500, and travelled throughout the U.S. in his lobotomobile – a camper van that allowed him to visit asylums in 23 contiguous states. He perfected ice pick lobotomies in the United States, and no doubt used the knowledge required to write this book as a guide for the proper placing of the point in subjects. He was also the first practicing neurologist in Washington, D.C. (Inventory #: SEG1054)
