In 1875, [William James] taught his first course in psychology, or “physiological psychology,” a la Wundt, and established a demonstration laboratory -- the same year Wundt established his at Leipzig.

Wundt, on the other hand, had been doing experimental psychology, though not always calling it by that name, since around 1860.
Many of the early publications in experimental psych are behind a language barrier now. It's unlikely that much more will be translated from the German, after all this time.
