An infinity of things : how Sir Henry Wellcome collected the world by Frances Larson( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Infinity of Things tells the story of one of the largest private collections ever created, and the life of the man behind it. Wellcome planned a great museum filled with treasures from all corners of the globe, charting the history of human health from prehistory to the present day. The breadth of his vision was matched only by the depth of his pockets. During the opening decades of the twentieth century he acquired a collection so large that later generations of staff took to describing its contents by the ton. But Wellcome's museum was never finished, and his collection was still stored in vast warehouses when he died, unseen and incomplete. Today, after decades of work by his successors, artefacts from the collection can be seen in museums and libraries throughout the world. Demonstrating what can happen when a collector's aspirations are left unconstrained by wealth, Frances Larson explores Wellcome's life through his possessions, revealing the many tensions in his character: between his talents as a businessman and his desire for scholarly recognition; his curiosity and his perfectionism; and his philanthropic aspirations and his drive for personal glory

De arte phisicali et de cirurgia of Master John Arderne : surgeon of Newark, dated 1412 by John Arderne( Book )

2 editions published in 1922 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Arderne, a 14th century English surgeon, played an important role in the development of surgery. He is most famous for his description of how to operate on anal fistula. His method is, in principle, still in use. Since the 18th century, The National Library in Stockholm has housed a five meter long parchment script, De arte phisicali et de cirurgia. It is richly illustrated by almost 130 hand-painted figures, which vividly, often theatrically, depict the ailments and treatments mentioned in the Latin text, authored mainly by John Arderne himself. This book is based on that manuscript. With comments and analyses by Torgny Svenberg, professor emeritus at Karolinska Institutet, and Peter Murray Jones, of King's College, Cambridge, expert in Latin and medieval medicine, this books give a fascinating picture of medicine and surgery 600 years ago."--Page [4] of cover
