4 SHERRINGTON, Charles Scott, Sir). ECCLES, John C. And William C. GIBSON Sherrington : His Life and Thought. First Edition in dustjacket
Springer International, New York, 1979, ISBN:0387090630 1979 0387090630 / 9780387090634 
(SHERRINGTON, Charles Scott, Sir). ECCLES, John C. and William C. GIBSON. Sherrington : His Life and Thought. (New York) : Springer International, 1979. First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xv,(1),[1]-269,(3), including colour frontispiece. Illustrated. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, white lettering to front board and spine.

Sir Charles Scott Sherrington (b. November 27, 1867, Islington, London - d. Marcvh 2, 1952, Eastbourne, Sussex) was an English neurophysiologist, histologist, bacteriologist, and pathologist, president of the Royal Society in the early 1920s, and co-winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1932.

Sir John Carew Eccles, AC FRS FRACP FRSNZ FAA[4] (b. January 27, 1903, Melbourne, Australia – d. May 2, 1997, Tenero-Contra, Switzerland) was an Australian neurophysiologist and philosopher.

William Carleton Gibson, C.M., M.D., D.Sc., F.R.C.P.(C.) (b. September 4, 1913, Ottawa - d. July 4, 2009, Victoria, British Columbia) Canadian neurologist and scholar.

"Although several studies have been published on Sherrington's work, until now none has dealt in depth with the man and his world. Sir John Eccles and Prof. William C. Gibson chronicle Sherrington's life from his undergraduate days at Cambridge to the Brown Institution in London, the University of Liverpool, Oxford, and finally his election to the Presidency of the Royal Society and his receipt of the Nobel Prize.

The authors draw on Sherrington's voluminous correspondence, on little known papers, speeches and poems, on his Gifford Lectures (1937-19380 and his superb biography of Jean Fernal (which he published at the age of 89). The result is a rigorous appraisal of Sherrington's philosophy and a portrait of the man as compelling as it is complete. This work will remain the definitive biography for many years to come." - from the dj.
