As these lectures were delivered by Hughlings Jackson in 1884, the German translation seems to be a bit belated. However, the fact that they have been translated is not only a tribute to the genius of Jackson but also a decided credit to present-day German neurology. Unfortunately, the writings of Jackson are not particularly lucid and his style not especially attractive and consequently his writings have been a long time in coming into their own. This translation is accompanied page for page by the English text and it is to be hoped that not only many German neurologists but also many of those in England and America will profit by this publication of the lectures of one of the most remarkable thinkers who ever adorned the annals of medicine.
