In this unique book on tinnitus, the authors present germinal papers and abstracts published from 1841 to 1980. The purpose of this book is to create a link between the print literature that is available as part of the tinnitus legacy and the more accessible data available from 1980 to the present. With this book the historical writings become easily accessible for anyone looking for information on tinnitus. The abstracts will prove interesting not only as historical curiosities that help in the understanding of findings and treatment practices over the years, but also as inspirations for future research and lessons for ongoing practices in the management of tinnitus.
