Remarks Page

   

No author or date of publication is given in the book however the book is heavly influenced by L. N. Fowler (pages 48-55) and references are made to other promient accademics of the late 19th Century such as 'professor Sigmund Exner' (page 57). Sigmund Exner became professor of physiology in 1891 therefore this book would most likey have been published sometime between 1891 and 1896.
