The works of John Hunter F.R.S. : with notes by John Hunter( Book )

1 edition published in 1837 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The surgeon and anatomist John Hunter (1728-93) left a famous legacy in the Hunterian Museum of medical specimens now in the Royal College of Surgeons, and in this collection of his writings, edited by James Palmer, with a biography by Drewry Ottley, published between 1835 and 1837. The first four volumes are of text, and the larger Volume 5 contains plates. Hunter had begun his career as a demonstrator in the anatomy classes of his brother William, before qualifying as a surgeon. He regarded surgery as evidence of failure - the mutilation of a patient who could not be cured by other means - and his studies of anatomy and natural history were driven by his belief that it was necessary to understand the normal physiological processes before attempting to cure the abnormal ones. Volume 5 contains the plates which accompany the works in the other volumes, along with notes
