First edition of a key work by the American pioneer in nervous and mental disorders William A. Hammond (1828-1900), neurologist and Surgeon-General of the United States Army. Hammond's Treatise on Diseases of the Nervous System (New York: Appleton, 1871) was "the first American treatise on neurology" (Garrison & Morton).
