The functions of the brain by David Ferrier( Book )

82 editions published between 1875 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My chief object in this book has been to present to the student of physiology or psychology a systematic exposition of the bearing of my own experiments on the functions of the brain. To do this satisfactorily I have thought it necessary to consider the functions of the cerebro-spinal system in general, with the view more especially of pointing out the mutual relations between the higher and the lower nerve centres. Throughout I have aimed at a concise digest rather than an encyclopedic account of the various researches by which our knowledge of the brain and spinal cord have been built up"--Preface.

Victorian CSI by William A Guy( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first edition of William A. Guy's "Principles of Forensic Medicine" was published at the start of Victoria's reign; the final edition, from which these selections derive, was published towards the end, just a few years after the Whitechapel horrors had pushed the emerging science to the forefront of the public's consciousness. With this guide in hand, a detective could tell whether the victim had suffocated, drowned, been shot, stabbed, or struck by lightning, spontaneously combusted, frozen to death or expired due to starvation - or, as the guide warns, was not dead at all, but simply in a state of 'suspended animation'. Suggestions include examining the face of the deceased for an 'expression of angry resistance', a clear indication of murder, and studying the demeanour of the nearest and dearest in cases of suspected 'secret poisoning'. With original woodcuts, case studies and notes on identifying the corpse and walking the crime scene, "Victorian CSI" will fascinate lovers of crime fiction and of true crime alike."--Publisher's description
