These exquisite photographs of nervous organs and tissues were made by the author, chiefly from his own preparations, during a period of forty years, first to illustrate his lectures at the University of Berlin; later many others were added and the whole collection assembled for distribution in partial fulfilment of the program begun by the publication, with Flatau, of the first part of the "Handbook of Anatomy and Comparative Anatomy of the Central Nervous System of Mammals" (Berlin, 1899). Jacobsohn-Lask (under the name of L. Jacobsohn) is well known to neurologists through previous publications, notably "Die Kreuzung der Nervenbahnen und die bilaterale Symmetrie des tierischen Körpers," published in Berlin in 1924 (reviewed in the Archives of Neurology13:678, 1925). With Flatau, he edited for many years the Jahresbericht über die Leistungen und Fortschritte auf dem Gebiete der Neurologie und Psychiatrie.
