Since his death at the end of the eighteenth century John Hunter has been variously described by his fellow scientists as "the Shakespeare of medicine," "with the exception of Hippocrates, the grandest figure in his profession," "a philosopher whose mental grasp embraced the whole range of nature's works," "one of the greatest men the English nation has produced." Hunterian literature crowds the shelves of medical libraries the world over. Yet outside the scientific community the name today strikes only a dim spark of recognition, if any at all. The reason is not hard to find. Although his practical contributions were legion, none had the kind of dramatic impact, the easily grasped significance, that excites the lay imagination. What Hunter accomplished, however, transcended specific discovery and technical invention, and in its totality, was no less spectacular. He introduced a new spirit of inquiry, a philosophy, which not only transformed the medical theory and practice of his epoch, but profoundly influenced scientific thinking everywhere down to our own times. Hunter has not fared well at the hands of his biographers. This book is an effort to reclaim the scientist from the archives and the man from the shadows. -- from Preface

Everard Home and the destruction of the John Hunter manuscripts: "The name of Sir Everard Home has passed down through the pages of medical history as a byword for apostasy, for ingratitude, for infidelity to himself, to his family and to science. Virtually every historian or biographer who mentions John Hunter takes pains to emphasize the undeniable fact that the greater part of Hunter's written contributions have been lost to posterity through the folly of his brother-in-law, SIr Everard Home, who as his acting executor came into possession of Hunter's manuscripts at his death, and who burned them thirty years later. Almost without exception, historians have repeated the accusation of William Clift, Hunter's amanuensis, that Home had plagiarized the materials he held in trust and destroyed the papers to cover his own defection, and the basic assumption is commonly accepted that Home's action was deliberate malfeasance. This is a reinvestigation of the reported facts concerning the destruction of the papers". -- Preface, p.3-4
