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

William Hunter and his contemporaries: "William Hunter has long been familiar to medical historians as an illustrious and influential obstetrician of the eighteenth century, and as the instigator in Great Britain of modern and enlightened methods of anatomical teaching and investigation. Although well worthy, in his own right, of a prominent position in the annals of medical fame, he has been overshadowed to a considerable extent by the brilliant achievements of his younger brother John. During their lives, John and William were bitter rivals. Indeed, there are no doubt many by whom William is remembered chiefly as an adversary for John, and as an over-anxious contestant for the honour of first credit for unraveling the complications of the vascular relationship in the placenta. This ancient controversy was reviewed and apparently settled in John's own favor by a careful examination of the brother's own written statements. Additional light, however, may well be thrown on the problem by an inquiry into some of the brothers' especial traits of personality and character. John Hunter has been clearly presented to posterity by a legion of biographical studies, all of which agree in portraying him as an individual of outstanding integrity, candid to a fault, and consummately honourable. William, in contrast, has remained a more shadowy figure. This study, therefore, will attempt to give substance to William Hunter from the fragments of evidence that are extricable from his own words and from the records of some of his contemporaries, in the hope that thereby a deeper insight may be gained into the personal as well as the scientific attributes of the elder of the two brothers who were the paramount leaders of British medicine in the eighteenth century."--Preface, p.109-110
