About this product
- DescriptionThe surgeon and anatomist John Hunter (1728-93) left a famous legacy in the Hunterian Museum of medical specimens w 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 t 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 rmal physiological processes before attempting to cure the abrmal ones. Volume 1 contains Ottley's biography, a list of Hunter's published works, and his lectures on surgery.
