München und Wiesbaden: J. F. Bergmann, 1920. First edition. Softcover. Duodecimo. 16pp. booklet, 15 plates. Original slipcase with decorative stiff wraps and black lettering on pasted down label of cover, containing a booklet and 15 plates.
The brain-scull-topography depicted in this publication are photographs taken with a Zeiss Protar Lens. The images represent models which where produced during examination. They were molded from compounds or gained by plastic reconstruction when unable to be dissected. The models are true-to-life, about one quarter of the natural size of the objects, and are best viewed with a Zeiss Lens Stereoscope.
A regular prism stereoscope produces a slightly exaggerated depth. Stereoscopic pictures are better suited to illustrate form and positioning of complicated structures than regular photographs, they are true-to-life, not schematized. The enclosed booklet provides a description of the objects photographed and is illustrated with three in-text drawings. The fifteen plates (5 1/4 x 7"), stereoscopic photographs (2 3/4 x 5") pasted down, depict various parts of the dissected head with detailed printed descriptions for each object.
