Notes

First separate printing, presentation copy, with Freud's inscription at the head of the front wrapper, "Rollett", that is, Alexander Rollett (1834-1903), the Austrian physiologist and histologist. The presentation was likely made at the suggestion of Freud's supervisor, Professor Ernst Brücke, who had mentored Rollett in his first post at the University of Graz in 1863. Since then Rollett had been instrumental in making the University of Graz an international centre for physiological training and education; he was rector of the university four times between 1872 and 1903.
Freud's first published paper was his "second piece of student research, on the function of the large Reissner cells in the spinal cord of the primitive fish Petromyzon... Freud showed that the Reissner cells 'gave rise to the root-fibres of the posterior roots' (Standard edition III, p. 228). Freud's investigation of the Reissner cells appeared in print three months before the publication of his first original piece of student research, on the gonadic structure of the male eel" (Norman).
