Library REBIND in hardcover, library stamps/marks/labels/slip, light tone, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; "Printed for the use in the Elementary Experimental Courses of the Harvard Psychological Laboratory" - title page. Undated, with Preface bearing October, 1903 date. "The chief phenomena exhibited by each of the senses are, we may say, the following: Threshold, Intensity, Latent Period, Duration, After Image, Exhaustion, Perception of Time, Perception of Space, and Feeling Tone. In the present course these phenomena are studied under several senses successively, since it has been found by the authors that this repetition of the same phenomenon under different senses enables the student to grasp the complex subject of sensation with relative ease. The authors believe, moreover, that such an arrangement emphasizes a fact of which the significance to psychology has been much underestimated." - Preface. Contents: Preface; I.
