The physical collection includes items which are archival materials with some being rare/irreplaceable. They are in various conditions from very fragile to fair and have high monetary value. For example, the collection contains Golgi's Magnum Opus which is considered to be virtually unobtainable otherwise. This book has been digitized and made available in the digital collection.
Sulla Fina Anatomia degli Organi Centrali del Sistema Nerviosa Golgi, Camillo, 1886, Ulrico Hoepli, Milan
Bound in buckram by Fred Mettler with original printed wraps bound in. Gilt lettering on the spine. Inscription and stamps of F. Rosenstein and Fred Mettler on blank page before front wrap.
This is Golgi's single most important work, summarizing his major work from 1873, when he first discovered The Silver Stain to his work in the mid 1880s. With gorgeous coloured plates of the nervous system, especially the cerebellum and hippocampus, this work established him as the master of neurohistology. This is one of the rarest books in the history of neurology.
