(1) Dr. Hans Kurella, of Bonn, whose eloquent tribute to Lombroso's memory I have briefly epitomised above, had a personal friendship with the deceased investigator of many years' duration, and is himself a writer of European reputation in the field of criminal anthropology. His best-known work is Die Naturgeschichte des Verbrechers (“The Natural History of the Criminal”), published in 1893. He is also joint author of an important periodical, Grensfragen des Nerven- und Seelenlebens (“Border-line Questions of Nervous and Mental Life”), several issues of which during 1910 were given up to an account of the life and work of Lombroso. This has been translated from German into English, and is now in the press. The title will be Cesare Lombroso, A Modern Man of Science.—M. E. P.
