Albert Eulenburg (1840-1917)  studied medicine at the Universities of Berlin, Bern and Zurich. He became a professor of pharmacology at the University of Greiswald, and in 1882 a professor of neurology in Berlin. He is best known for his magisterial multi-volume Real-Encyclopädie der gesammten Heilkundes–published in four editions between 1880 and 1914. He introduced his  barersthesiometer  in the 1890s and it soon became widely adopted for the measurement of sensitivity to pressure, an important diagnostic marker in various neurological diseases. 

We are offering a fine cased example of his baresthesiometer, which was  made by Rudolf Détert, working in Berlin. It is in very good mechanical and cosmetic condition, noting a trace of dust under the glass. The case ( 9″ or 23 cm in length, approx.) is stamped in gold: “Dr. Henz”.
