On Aphasia, or Loss of Speech
Batemen, F. On aphasia, or loss of speech, and the localization of the faculty of articulate language. 1890
"One of the first books dedicated exclusively to aphasia was published in 1879 by Frederic Bateman (1824-1904) [...] In Bateman's exemplarily systematic work altogether 72 cases (already published and his own) are discussed in order to clarify the question of localization of speech. [...] Bateman is the first to clearly propose that aphasia could be described in terms of syndromes and the probability that each individual with aphasia has a unique pattern of symptoms. A range of symptoms and features of aphasia are presented in detail and with examples by Bateman [...] The presentation is impressive from a modern perspective and only disorders of language comprehension and syntax are missing from his extensive surgery." (Juergen Tesak and Chris Code: "Milestones in the History of Aphasia. Theories and Protagonists", 2008, p. 63).
