Description First separate edition. Offprint. Original wrappers. ?The nerve center (ganglion cells) is shown to be the one necessary factor in the formation of the peripheral nerve. When it is removed from the body of the embryo the latter fails to develop. When it is transplanted to abnormal positions in the body of the embryos it then gives rise to nerves which may follow paths, where normally no nerves run, and likewise when the tissues surrounding the center are changed entirely, nerves proceeding from that center may develop as normally. The nerve is therefore a product of the ganglion cell? Ross Harrison. Small chip bottom edge of front cover. A very good copy. Rare offprint. *
