The authors examined a considerable part of the original sources to build up their survey on the first events around the discovery of the auditory ossicles and the numerous controversies regarding priority and other issues. Facsimiles of portraits and of anatomical illustrations enliven the text, and the summary is given in an English translation. It was no mean task to disentangle the labyrinth of data leading to a final establishment of knowledge around this section of aural anatomy. This is a very timely, highly readable, and instructive monograph.
