Allen Starr, one of America’s leading neurologists at the turn of the twentieth century, was also one of the earliest neurosurgeons in the country. “Brain Surgery”, published in 1893, encapsulates the contemporary knowledge of its subject, and is enchanced by examples from Starr’s personal cases. In this work, this noted practitioner and revered teacher hoped to “state clearly those facts regarding the essential features of brain disease which will enable the reader to determine in any case both the nature and the situation of the pathological process in progress, to settle the question whether the disease can be removed by surgical interference, and to estimate the safety and probability of success by operation.”

We are please to present one of the essential links to the practice of modern neurosurgery for inclusion in your collection of classics.
