Camillo Golgi!

Camillo Golgi shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Ramon y Cajal in 1906 “in recognition of his work on the structure of the nervous system”. This work by Golgi “Sulla fina anatomia degli organi centrali del sistema nervoso” is an extraordinary association copy as the front flyleaf has an inscription from Golgi himself to Gustaf Retzius “Herrn Professor Dr. Gustaf Retzius Hochachtungsvoll C. Golgi”. It has 24 folding chromolithographed plates and was printed in Reggio-Emilia in 1885. Hagströmer Library Collection.
