DIGITAL COPIES

Some of the unique material in the Collection is being digitised to make it more accessible. Where appropriate these are being made available in parts, but they are still large files so please be patient. More will be added in the future as more digitisation is completed.

Please note, we are seeking confirmation from all the relevant groups that they are happy to have their minutes used as part of a historical record. If any individual members object to their names being published in this way, please contact us and we will have them removed.

Notes taken from Mr Hunter's Lectures on Surgery 1781 by John Clarke
This volume comprises notes taken during a course of lectures on the Theory and Practice of Surgery given by the eminent surgeon John Hunter. The notes were taken by Dr John Clarke, who later played an important role in the development of obstetrics as a specialism. A certificate of attendance, signed by John Hunter himself and dated 1783, is pasted into the front cover. John Hunter (1728-1793) was regarded as one of the most distinguished scientists and surgeons of his day. He was an early advocate of careful observation and scientific method in medicine. Many of his papers were burnt after his death (making this volume particularly important). Most of thos that remain are held in the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons. [N.B. The digitisation of this volume was made possible thanks to a kind donation from the Derriford Hospital League of Friends.]
