Biographical Text

"This company 'was formed in 1805 by a number of medical men entering into partnership for the purpose of getting their prescriptions properly dispensed'. The Apothecaries' Hall was opened in Wilson's Court, 29 Argyll Street, but as it soon evolved into a retailing business and moved in 1810 to one of the old mansions in Virginia Street." (Geyer-Kordesch & MacDonald, p. 248)
"In 1919 [T & H Smith Ltd] acquired the business of Glasgow Apothecaries Co, which had been established at Virginia Street, Glasgow, in 1805, by a group of general practitioners who wished to establish an efficient dispensary for their prescribed drugs. Shortly afterwards, Glasgow Apothecaries Co began distributing wholesale to retail druggists." (Richmond et al)

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.

The Birds of America

Description

The birds of America : from original drawings / by John James Audubon, Fellow of the Royal Societies of London & Edinburgh and of the Linnean & Zoological Societies of London[,] Member of the Natural History Society of Paris, of the Lyceum of New York, &c. &c. &c.
This book was published over an eleven year period, 1827-1838. Fewer than 200 sets of the four volumes were printed. There are 435 prints in a complete set. The College paid £48 in 1838 for its half set of prints 1-200, probably purchased second-hand after the original subscriber defaulted. The prints were engraved and coloured in Edinburgh and London, under Audubon’s supervision, from his original paintings and drawings now held by the New York Historical Society.
Although he portrayed the birds in lifelike poses, all were dead when painted. He shot the specimens himself then arranged them with wires on a firm base. The book is double elephant folio in size to allow depiction of the birds life-sized, in their natural habitat and to be viewed from eye level.
John James Audubon was born as Jean Rabin in Haiti in 1785, the son of a French naval officer, Lieutenant Jean Audubon and his mistress, Jeanne Rabin, a Creole woman who died later that year. When John was four years old his father took him back to France and he was formally adopted into the Audubon family.
He was sent to his father’s small estate near Philadelphia in 1805, perhaps to avoid conscription in Napoleon’s army, and it was here he began to study and illustrate American birds. This was to be the major work of his life, and is one of the finest ornithological works ever completed.

Tracheotomy Set

Description

Tracheotomy, or Tracheostomy, set containing one sharp hook, one blunt hook, one scalpel, one pair of dilating forceps, and three cannulae.
Before the advent of antibiotics and routine inoculation, diphtheria was a common infectious disease requiring urgent treatment.
The main problem was the rapid production of a grey thick membrane at the entrance to the fauces (back of the throat). As it thickened it began to make breathing increasingly difficult. Children, systematically weakened by the toxins produced by the disease and with naturally narrow airways, could die from suffocation without immediate relief.
The contents of this box contain all the instruments required for such an intervention.
The child was laid on his/her back with a support under the shoulder to expose the windpipe- this makes the trachea easily identified under the skin by its rings of cartilage. An incision was made into the trachea with a scalpel. Enlarging the wound vertically enabled the edges to be grasped with retraction hooks, allowing a tracheostomy tube to be inserted and secured in place by tape around the neck. This procedure would usually take less than a minute to perform, resulting in immediate relief for the patient.
During the diphtheria epidemic in the 1930s, staff in fever hospitals may have been required to perform such a procedure up to 4 or 5 times in the course of one night.

Cardiac Bioptome with modern transfemoral instrument

Description

In the 1970's Professor Philip Caves, of the Cardiothoracic Transplant Laboratory at Stanford Medical School invented the cardiac bioptome. This instrument is used to diagnose heart rejection. The procedure is performed at regular intervals after transplant surgery, at occasional times when rejection is expected and to assess the adequacy of anti-rejection therapy. The bioptome is inserted through the patient's neck into the jugular vein. Under fluoroscopy it is guided to the apex of the right ventricle. The jaws of the instrument are opened and closed, and a small sample of tissue is consequently removed. Sometimes the bioptome is inserted through the femoral vein instead. The procedure lasts for about 30 minutes and is performed under general anaesthetic. Professor Caves' invention is regarded as the 'Gold Standard' for evaluating heart rejection.
