First Edition. Recommended by the renowned Falck, of Marburg, as "a fundamental monograph" on the chemistry, physiology, and therapeutics of caffeine. This work was Brill's Doctoral dissertation at Marburg. It can be conjectured that the inspiration for this work came from Falck (1816-1880), Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology at Marburg, who oversaw and supervised almost as many dissertations in related areas.
