Dissertatio Secunda. de Sede et Caussa Coloris Aethiopum et Caeterorum Hominum. Accedunt Icones Coloribus Distinctae
Monro Collection M4
[Leiden: With Theodore Haak…]
The Monro Collection of medical rare books and manuscripts once belonged to Alexander Monro Primus (1697-1767), and following generations AM Secundus (1733-1817) and AM Tertius (1773-1859). Together these men monopolised the teaching of anatomy at the University of Edinburgh for well over 100 years. Monro Tertius bequeathed the collection to his son Sir David Monro (1813-1877), who emigrated to New Zealand. In 1929, Dr Charles Monro Hector, a graduate of Otago Medical School, and Sir David’s grandson, encouraged the transfer of the collection to the Medical School Library. In 2012 it was transferred to Special Collections. This is a treatise by the Dutch anatomist, Bernhard Siegfried Albinus (1697-1770). The coloured plate depicts a partially dissected scrotum and urethra.
