The cover picture shows Emil Fischer around the turn of the century in his Privatlaboratorium at the Friedrich-Wilhelms Universität of Berlin (today Humboldt University). The somewhat unusual laboratory stool he inherited from his predecessor, August Wilhelm von Hofmann, who, in 1865, brought it to Berlin on his move from the Royal College of Chemistry, London. The Microreview by F. W. Lichtenthaler on p. 4095 ff. highlights Emil Fischer's personality, achievements, and scientific progeny.
