Luys, each with attached text leaf. Paris: Bailličre, 1888. 165 × 113 mm. Loose as issued in publisher’s quarter morocco slipcase designed to resemble a book when placed on the shelf.

First Edition of the reduced-size version of Luy’s Iconographie photographique des Centres nerveux (1873, Garrison-Morton.com 1406.01), which was the first large-scale photographic atlas of the anatomy of the brain. The publisher’s advertisement at the end of the reduced-size version indicated that the original was still available for the impressive sum of 150 francs. Luys made important contributions to neuroanatomy, the best known being his classic description of the subthalamic nucleus (sometimes referred to as the corpus Luysii) and the pathways connecting this body to the cerebral cortex and the globus pallidus.
