264pp. Frontispiece portrait of Cannon. Illustrated. This copy inscribed and signed by McCuskey Brooks on the front free endpaper. Brooks was elected to the National Academy of Sciences the same year this was published. His work spanned neurophysiology, neuroendocrinology (he is considered a pioneer in this field), autonomic nervous system and cardiac physiology (his studies were instrumental in the development of cardiac pacemakers). There are some scuff marks to the back board. A nice copy overall and quite uncommon as a signed copy. Size: 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall View More...
