Biographical Text

Thomas Wharton Jones was born in St. Andrews and educated first at a school in Stirling, then at the Parish School of Dalmeny, and then at Musselburgh Grammar School. In 1822 he entered the literary classes at the University of Edinburgh and, a couple of years later, commenced the study of medicine. In 1827, at the age of eighteen, he was acting as demonstrator of anatomy under Robert Knox at the extra-mural school of anatomy. His fellow demonstrators were William Fergusson and Alexander Miller. However, the popular clamour over the Burke and Hare murders brought the extra-mural school of anatomy to an untimely end. As the school had been supplied with bodies for dissection by Burke and Hare, Knox and his demonstrators were driven out of Edinburgh. Wharton Jones went to Glasgow and through the influence of William Mackenzie determined to practice ophthalmic medicine and surgery. He was also a pupil of Professor Rainy and John Burns, under whom he studied embryology, and it was during this time that he made the first of a long series of discoveries destined to make his name famous. The discovery of the germinal vesicle in the mammalian ovum was published as a paper in 1835, and was followed in 1837 by a paper on the origin of the chorion, which attracted the attention and approval of the celebrated anatominst, Purkinje. For a short time, Wharton Jones engaged in private practice in Cork, then visited the principal continental universities. From 1838 he settled in London where he held first the post of Lecturer in Physiology at Charing Cross Hospital, then that of Fullerian Professor of Physiology at the Royal Institution. Subsequently, he was Professor of Ophthalmic Medicine and Surgery at University College, and Ophthalmic Surgeon to University College Hospital, a position that he held for thirty years. Upon his retiral from University College, he was granted the title of Emeritus Professor at that College. In 1840 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, and in 1844 was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons. In 1881, Wharton Jones moved from London to the town of Ventnor on the Isle of Wight where he lived until his death in 1891. During his lifetime he wrote a number of papers, most of which were published in the Philosophical Transactions, and relate chiefly to the capillary circulation in health and in inflammation. His essay, "The state of the blood and blood vessels in inflammation", which called attention to the degeneration that occurs in nerve fibres distally after their severance from the nerve centres, was published in the Guy's Hospital Reports for October 1850, and was awared the Astley Cooper prize of £300.

Biographical Text

William Mackenzie was born in Queen Street, Glasgow, on 29 April 1791, the son of James Mackenzie, a muslin manufacturer. He was educated at Glasgow Grammar School and Glasgow University where he initially studied divinity with the intention of becoming a minister of the Church of Scotland. In 1810 he turned to medicine and in 1813 acted as a resident clerk to Dr Richard Miller. He obtained the Licence of the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 1815 and spent nearly the whole of the next three years on the Continent, attending the clinics of Dupuytren and Alibert in Paris and Beer in Vienna. He came to London in 1818, attended lectures of Dr John Abernethy (1764-1831) at St Bartholomew's Hospital and attempted to set up in general practice. He became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons on 1 May 1818. In June 1819, Mackenzie tried to establish an Eye Infirmary in Southwark but the plan fell through and he returned to Glasgow two months later. He became a Fellow of the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, began general practice and started lecturing on anatomy, surgery, materia medica and medical jurisprudence in Anderson's College.

In 1824, in conjunction with Dr G C Montieth, he founded the Glasgow Eye Infirmary. In 1828 he was appointed Waltonian Lecturer at the University of Glasgow "On the Structure, Function and Diseases of the Eye." In the same year, the first edition of the Glasgow Medical Journal appeared with Mackenzie as editor. Mackenzie published his Practical Treatise on the Diseases of the Eye in 1830 and it became a standard textbook on the subject until the invention of the ophthalmoscope in 1851 caused a radical change in the diagnosis and treatment of intra-ocular disease. The Physiology of Vision, published in 1841, was not to prove such a success and was considered by George Rainy in Mackenzie's obituary to be "far in advance of the age in which it was written". He was appointed Surgeon-Oculist in Scotland to Queen Victoria in 1838. He died at Glasgow on 30 July 1868.

Part of the collection was exhibited at the Glasgow City Museum and Art Gallery in 1959 as part of the celebrations of the 500th Anniversary of the Faculty. Some of the archives within the collection were listed in 1979 in RCPSG 1. They have now been brought together as well as other items of the collection which went astray and were subsequently purchased by the College.

Biographical Text

Professor T C White was born in Falkirk in 1911, the son of a dental supplier. After early schooling in Falkirk and later at Glasgow Academy, he continued his education in the city by training as a dental surgeon. He gained a Licence in Dental Surgery in 1933 and the Triple Qualification of the three Scottish medical colleges in 1935. After qualifying he became a dental anaesthetist in Glasgow. He then, however, concentrated his interest in orthodontics, developing a practice limited to this specialty. When he was asked to return to the Dental School to assist Dr A G Wilson, he took over and began to build up the Orthodontic Department. After a period as consultant to the Western Regional Hospital Board, Dr White was appointed Professor of Orthodontics at the University of Glasgow in 1963. He maintained strong links with the affairs of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. He initiated, along with Professor J Aitchison, the development of a postgraduate qualification in Orthodontics, the first such qualification in the UK. As the dental representative on the College council, Professor White played an important role in promoting the development of the Fellowship in Dental Surgery which was established in 1967. He was convenor of the Dental Council 1972 – 1974. Professor White died in 1980. In his will be bequeathed the residue of his estate to the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow “for the furtherance of postgraduate dental education and research”. The income from this bequest has subsequently been used to support projects in the field of postgraduate dental education and research.

Biographical Text

James Sloan Mutrie Robertson graduated M.B., Ch.B. (Honours) from the University of Glasgow in 1928. He took the FRCS England in 1932, and the FRCS Glasgow in 1962. He was appointed gate surgeon to Glasgow Royal Infirmary but decided to pursue neurosurgery, training as a fellow of the Neurological Institute, Montreal. On returning to Glasgow Royal Infirmary he was appointed as neurosurgeon. After the Second World War, he was retained as a specialist in neurosurgery, and appointed to a new EMS hospital at Killearn where he pioneered and developed neurosurgery as an outstanding service to the west of Scotland. Robertson and Eric Paterson, with the support of Sir Charles Illingworth, formed the Glasgow and West of Scotland Neurosurgical Unit. Robertson also created the Institute of Neurological Sciences at Glasgow, which was based on the Neurological Institute at Montreal but modified in accord with his own experience at Killearn.

De Humani Corporis Fabrica Libri Septem

Description

Andreae Vesalii Bruxellensis, scholae medicorum Patauinae professoris De humani corporis fabrica libri septem
Andreas Vesalius was born in 1514 in Brussels, Belgium. He studied medicine at the University of Louvain and then in Paris. He moved to Padua, home at the time to one of the most important medical schools in Europe. He completed his doctorate and was appointed as anatomical demonstrator and lectured on anatomy. Vesalius emphasised the importance of dissection in the study of anatomy. The 'De Humani Corporis Fabrica' (On the Fabric of the Human Body), published in Basel in 1543, was a beautifully illustrated and influential anatomical textbook. One of the most striking features of the illustrations are the 'muscle men' figures in striking poses surrounded by landscape. After publication of the book, Vesalius was appointed Imperial Physician to Emperor Charles V. He died in 1564.
[12], 659 [i e 663], [37] pages
Formerly owned by the Lutheran theologian Paul Eber (1511-69). Blind-stamped initials "P E" on front cover, and various annotations in Eber's hand throughout.
Originally bound in pigskin by the 16th century Wittenberg bookbinder Conrad Neidel, with blind-stamped decorations (including a roll of portraits of Erasmus, Melanchthon, Martin Luther, and Hans Holbein the Younger). The front, back and spine were removed in the mid-20th century and pasted to a new binding Niger goatskin.
Inscription excised from original endpapers and pasted to front pastedown: "Fama est Vesalium esse mortuum". This is a quote from a 1565 letter from Hubert Languet to Caspar Peucer, informing the latter of the death of Vesalius.

The Old Closes and Streets of Glasgow

Description

Thomas Annan had already established a reputation as one of Scotland's leading photographers when he was commissioned by the City of Glasgow Improvement Trust to take photographs of the closes and wynds of old Glasgow that were scheduled for demolition under the Glasgow City Improvements Act of 1866. Thirty-one photographs were taken. Two editions of these photographs were produced from the collodion negatives in the years following the completion of the commission. The original series of prints used the albumen process and were created in limited numbers. In 1878, as a result of demand from a number of institutions, the Trustees had a second edition of 100 published, with an additional nine photographs. This edition used Joseph Swan's carbon print process for which Annan had secured exclusive usage rights for Scotland in 1866.
Attached to title page : handwritten letter dated 9 September 1881 from Lord Provost John Ure at City Chambers to Dr. R. Scott Orr, President of the Faculty of the Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, giving details of the circumstances surrounding the presentation of a special set of the photographs to the Faculty.
