Title

18th century book of herbal remedies

Description

Whilst it is impossible to know exactly when we first started using herbs and plants for medicinal purposes, archaeological evidence suggests that herbs have been used in Scotland since the Bronze age. Indeed the use of herbs as healing remedies goes back to the very beginnings of medicine itself, from 3700 B.C. Egypt, followed by the Chinese and later the Greeks and Romans. The earliest written account of herbal remedies comes from China and dates back to 2800 B.C.

In Scotland there has been a long held tradition of herbal folk medicine. However, written accounts of commonly used remedies did not appear until very much more recent times, knowledge of plants having been initially passed from generation to generation by word of mouth. Particularly in the more remote areas of Scotland, folk medicine was handed down by tradition, with little change, until the 17th Century. Opportunities for medical education were limited, and means of transport extremely bad, making it difficult for medical practitioners to reach patients out with the principal towns. As a result many had to rely to a great extent upon remedies which were available locally.

The provenance is unknown for the College’s 18th century herbal but it is believed to come from lowland Scotland. It was digitised courtesy of the Scottish Archive Network and is an excellent example of the way in which the remedies, previously passed from generation to generation as an oral tradition, began to be collected together in hand-written volumes. Many examples of similar documents can be found within collections of household manuscripts, correspondence and accounts, and it would appear that many households across the social spectrum kept such documents

Many herbals, particularly those belonging to Scottish land-owning families, were very decorative, typically leather bound and often interspersed with ornately decorated pages with drawings and elaborate hand-writing. Individual volumes were often written in different hands with recipes and remedies occasionally being attributed to individuals. Indeed a particular 18th century volume (in the National Library of Scotland) entitled ‘Physick and Cookery of various Kinds’ compiled by Martha Bruce, Countess of Elgin, contains contributions from eminent individuals including Dr Herman Boerhaave’s cure for Chilblains and Asthma and remedies from Dr Ratcliffe, Physician to Queen Anne.

Herbals often contained not only herbal remedies but also recipes and beauty and household remedies, and in later years, the traditional household herbal came to resemble more of a cookery book with sections for herbal remedies being relegated to the back of the volume. The remedies and recipes often remained unchanged with the same herbs and methods being used for centuries.

This particular volume is only a small illustration of the abundance of similar material which can be found in public and private collections of household papers, and provides a small insight into the strong tradition of herbal medicine which has existed in Scotland down the ages.

3D Model of Cannon Shell Injury

Description

c. 1946

This unexploded cannon shell was extracted from the face of a patient by Professor Tom Gibson, a former president of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. The shell struck the soldier in the face, but caused little clinical disturbance.

Tom Gibson was born in Kilbarchan, Renfrewshire, on 24 November 1915. He was educated at Paisley Grammar School and Glasgow University where he graduated MB, ChB in 1938. He worked in the Medical Research Council Burns Unit, Glasgow Royal Infirmary, 1942-4. While at the Burns Unit he made an outstanding contribution to the understanding of the mechanism of homograft rejection. He was joined in Glasgow by Peter Medawar who had been working in Oxford on the same problem and their joint work “The fate of skin homografts in man”, was published in the Journal of Anatomy in 1943. The article is quoted in Morton’s Medical Bibliography as the work which placed the laws of transplantation on a firm scientific basis.

3D Model of Osteotome

Description

Displayed here is a 3D animated model showing the mechanism of an osteotome, a medical instrument designed by Sir William Macewen.

William Macewen was a surgeon in Glasgow during the late 19th century and early 20th century. He pioneered many clinical specialities, including orthopaedics. He designed his version of the osteotome in the 1870s, and wrote an in depth account of its design in his publication, "Osteotomy with an inquiry into the aetiology and pathology of knock-knee, bow-leg, and other osseous deformities of the lower limbs."

He explains:

"The osteotome is an instrument of the chisel order, bevelled on both sides, so as to resemble a very slender wedge...The osteotome is used only for making simple incisions, or wedge-shaped openings without removal of bone."

3D Scan of Biphasic Stimulator

Description

c. 1960s

This bi-phasic stimulator was owned (and probably built) by the neurologist James Sloan Robertson. Although the exact purpose of the machine is unclear, it was most likely used during surgical treatment of patients suffering from epilepsy. An electrode would be attached to the machine, which would help the surgeon to locate a lesion for removal, and also ensure that an undamaged part of the brain was not about to be removed. The device is clearly handmade, and is most likely an early prototype or precursor to machines used in later deep brain recording techniques.

James Sloan Robertson was one of the first modern neurosurgeons in the UK. After graduating in medicine from the University of Glasgow in 1920, he worked as a surgeon at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. He then trained in Canada for a year under renowned neurosurgeon, Wilder Penfield, at the Neurological Institute, Montreal.
During the Second World War, Robertson worked as a specialist in neurosurgery at the EMS Hospital in Killearn. He was one of the men behind the creation of the Institute of Neurological Sciences at Glasgow.

3D Scan of Examination Chair

Description

c. 1890

This chair for clinical examination and operative procedures was made by Mayer and Meltzer sometime in the 1890s. It was commissioned by Adam Brown Kelly (1866-1941), laryngologist at the Victoria Infirmary, Glasgow and was constructed to a design of the leading London laryngologist, Sir Morell Mackenzie. The high back with its adjustable head rest is at right angles to the seat, forcing the occupant to maintain a very upright posture.

There is only one armrest, on the left, and the seat’s central portion can rotate. All these features facilitate certain otolaryngological procedures. All examination was done using reflected light, the examiner looking down the centre of the beam created by a circular concave mirror via a central hole in the mirror. A lamp was placed slightly behind and to the left of the chair back, with the surgeon, seated, facing the patient.

The chair was later used by Adam Brown Kelly’s son, Derek, (d.2002) who was also an E.N.T. surgeon at the Victoria Infirmary.

"...I saw the lion just in the act of springing upon me...he caught my shoulder as he sprang, and we both came to the ground below together. Growling horribly close to my ear, he shook me as a terrier dog does a rat...Besides crunching the bone into splinters, he left eleven teeth wounds on the upper part of my arm."

Animation on First Brain Tumour Removal

Description

In 1879, Barbara Watson came under the care of William Macewen, presenting with a large tumour over the left eye. Macewen tended to Miss Watson with his well-known skill and compassion, but little did he know that this case would become a world first in neurosurgery.

At this time, there were no methods of imaging the body non-invasively- Rontgen did not discover X-rays until 1895. Therefore, determining the dimensions of brain lesions relied on the practitioner's observations of the patient's symptoms alone. This would have required an in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the brain. Thankfully, Macewen was well-read on the current theories on the brain at that time. Miss Watson truly could not have asked for a better surgeon to help her.

Due to Miss Watson's frequent convulsions, Macewen suspected that the tumour above the left eye was in fact passing through the skull into the brain. Hence, he decided to cut into the mass and follow its trajectory. Upon investigation, it was discovered that the tumour did indeed pass through the skull and was putting pressure on the dura mater. Macewen successfully removed the tumour, under antiseptic conditions, and closed the wound. Miss Watson survived the operation and died some years later from kidney problems completely unrelated to this case.

This case became the first successful removal of a brain tumour in the world.

Animation on Lister's Carbolic Spray

Description

In 1867, Joseph Lister published his ground-breaking article “Antiseptic Principle of the Practice of Surgery” in the medical journal, The Lancet. This article presented Lister's initial cases where he used what would become his principle of antisepsis. It was in the Glasgow Royal Infirmary that Lister first started using carbolic as an antiseptic, heralding the beginnings of a surgical revolution.

The carbolic spray, however, was mainly employed during Lister's time as a surgeon in Edinburgh. As well as sterilising wounds, Lister aimed to sterilise the surgical environment. Hence, an operator would pump carbolic spray around the operating theatre to eradicate any germs. Unfortunately, this had detrimental effects on practitioners since they were inhaling highly concentrated carbolic acid.

Animation on Lung Penetration Case

Description

During his time as a police surgeon in Glasgow, William Macewen attended to several cases in the city centre. He collected any mentions of the cases from newspapers and put them together in a clippings book, which is held within the College's archive collection.

On 11th October, 1873, a young man had been stabbed in the back during an altercation. He had complaints of feeling breathless, as if something was tugging on his throat. When Macewen examined the wound, he found that the probe extended all the way into the pleural lining of the lungs.

At this point he came into contact with a shard of the knife that had been used to stab the young man. He successfully removed the knife segment and the patient survived.

Artificial Pneumothorax

Description

Wooden box containing metal pump, regulating valve, aneroid manometer and filter.

An Artificial Pneumothorax would have been used as a method of treating Tuberculosis. This condition is caused by the bacterium Myobacterium Tuberculosis, targetting the lungs of the body.

Before a TB vaccination was in place, "Collapse Therapy" was used to treat patients with the condition. This therapy aimed to induce a pneumothorax, (collapsed lung), in order to give the lungs some rest. The artificial pneumothorax instrument enabled the physician to pump air into the serous lining of the lungs, increasing the pressure, and resulting in a compression of the lungs.

This technique was phased out after the development of the antibiotic streptomycin.

Atlas Der Ophthalmoscopie

Description

Atlas der ophthalmoscopie : darstellung des augengrundes im gesunden und krankhaften zustande enthaltend 12 tafeln mit 59 figuren in farbendruck. Nach der natur gemalt und erläutert / von Dr. Richard Liebreich.

This book came to the College from the library of the Glasgow Eye Infirmary, having previously belonged to Andrew Freeland Fergus, ophthalmologist and former President of the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. It was in quite poor condition when it was scanned - the binding had all but fallen apart, and this allowed us to get better pictures of each page. Once scanning was complete it was sent away for conservation. The book has recently returned from the conservator's workshop; it's now housed in a lovely new binding and stored alongside our rare book collections.

Richard Liebreich (1830-1917) was a German ophthalmologist and physiologist. In addition to this volume, the College library holds a similar atlas from 1863 and a short pamphlet.

Ballantyne's Pipettes

Description

For holding various ophthalmological solutions. Consists of six open-ended pipettes of various colours retained in a metal stand, with glass domed cover. Used to allow the Ophthamologist to select topical drugs easily and safely, as the solutions were effectively colour coded.

Pipettes/dropper bottles: Six in number. The glass cylinders were uniform in diameter, with an ovel aperture (1.1cm x 0.85cm) in the glass wall, about mid length. This was covered by a rubber membrane, to give the user complete control of the solution delivery.

The pipettes are made of different coloured glass, to identify the contents easily and safely. It would seem that the colours identified the solutions as follows:
Purple = Atropine
Flint (clear) = Cocaine
Ruby = Eserine
Dark blue = Adrenaline
Green = Euphthalmine (eucatropine, a long-acting atropine)
Amber = Fluorescein

Metal stand: Consists of a square flat metal base, 10.28cm in size. Central metal column, 0.64cm in diameter and 17cm in height, ending in a lifting ring 3.1cm diameter. Two metal discs 8.25cm in diameter are incorporated into the central column 3.4cm apart, each with six disc cutouts 1.74cm in diameter, to retain the glass pipettes.

Chromium plated.

Glass dome, retained by four spring clips located on the stand base, is 18cm in height, by 9.5cm in diameter. Clear glass, 0.025cm thickness.

[Dr A J Ballantyne was a well known Glasgow Ophthalmologist, active between 1910 and 1945, being eventually appointed Professor of Ophthalmology at Glasgow University, and a senior Consultant at The Tennant Institute for Ophthalmology, in Glasgow.]

Title

Bi-phasic Stimulator

Description

This bi-phasic stimulator was owned (and probably built) by the neurologist James Sloan Robertson. Although the exact purpose of the machine is unclear, it was most likely used during surgical treatment of patients suffering from epilepsy. An electrode would be attached to the machine, which would help the surgeon to locate a lesion for removal, and also ensure that an undamaged part of the brain was not about to be removed. The device is clearly handmade, and is most likely an early prototype or precursor to machines used in later deep brain recording techniques.

Cameron's Electrodiagnostoset

Description

Cameron's electro-diagnostoset, in wooden case, c 1926.

Cameron's Electro-Diagnostoset was produced by Cameron's Surgical Speciality Company of Chicago during the 1920s. The company produced an extensive range of lamps for use in dental and medical diagnosis and the Electro-Diagnostoset seen here is, essentially, a collection of such lamps. The company produced a variety of models of these sets from the very high end, with a silk-lined leather case and a complete set of instruments, to low end sets in simple wooden cases containing a bare minimum of instruments.

The set shown appears to be of the model 3A type, one of the more expensive models. The components are constructed primarily from bakelite and steel to allow them to be sterilized and increase reliability. It contains a variety of instruments including an opthalmoscope, procto-sigmoidoscope, urethroscope and a variety of bulbs in a range of shapes and sizes. In most cases the illumination was provided not by the instruments but by the handles. The set came with two handles which were connected to a power supply. A bulb could then be screwed into the top of the handle. In the case of the large bulbs (such as the long bulbs on the right of the case in the picture) that would be the instrument complete but, with the small bulbs, a variety of attachments could be fitted onto the handle to form different instruments.

This particular example was imported into the UK by Dr. Archibald Young of Glasgow and is believed to be the only example in the country. Dr. Young initially inquired about ordering in 1926; the set arrived in Prince's Dock Glasgow in 1928 on board the freighter Anacortes and did not clear customs and reach him until 1929. The set cost £308 including shipping expenses.

The set cost £308 including shipping expenses.

Title

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.

Cast of the Cranium of Robert Burns

Description

In 1834 the body of Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns, was exhumed from his grave in Dumfries. The exhumation was supervised by local surgeon Archibald Blacklock, who had an interest in phrenology. A plaster cast was taken of the skull, and Blacklock noted that “nothing could exceed the high state of preservation in which we found the bones of the cranium, or offer a fairer opportunity of supplying what has so long been desiderated by Phrenologists - a correct model of our immortal Poet’s head”. George Combe, a leading phrenologist, examined the cast and published his analysis in Edinburgh in 1834.

Three casts were made during the 1834 exhumation. This cast is believed to be a copy produced later in the 19th century. It was in the possession of Murdoch Cameron, Professor of Midwifery at the University of Glasgow. Cameron then gave the cast to John Cleland, Professor of Anatomy, whose collection is housed in the University’s Museum of Anatomy.

This item is on loan from The Hunterian, University of Glasgow.

Cachets are used to mask the unpleasant taste of certain medicines. The unfavourable tastes were initially masked in foods, such as bread and jam. This mode of cachet was eventually replaced by thin leaflets made from flour and water.
Cachets made with this machine would have been composed of rice paper. The first disc was placed in one of the circular holders, then powder was then filtered in, and the second disc was sealed on top with the roller, which was moistened with water.

College Crest Animation

Description

This animation describes the different elements that make up the crest of the College.

Transcript

"The current coat of arms was approved by College council in 1862. In the top left and bottom right quarters we can see the symbols for the physicians and surgeons,  the poppy and the lancet, with the staff of Asclepius, a Greek god of healing and medicine, in the centre. 

In the top right quarter we have the royal arms of Scotland, included to show the connections to the royal foundation of the College by King James VI.  

In the bottom left quarter is the shield of arms of the city of Glasgow,  included to show the importance of the local position of the College in the community. Above the central shield of the crest is a lamp in front of an open book, representing enlightenment and continued learning.

There are two goddesses on the crest, chosen to represent the scientific and medical and surgical characteristics of the College. On the right is Hygeia, the Greek goddess of health. And on the left, Minerva, the Roman goddess of science and art. 

Then we have the College motto. At the top, "Conjurat Amice", which translates to "together in friendship". This represents the physicians and surgeons working together.  At the bottom, "Non vivere sed valere vita",  which loosely translates to "not just to live life but to have a healthy life".

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.
