Bibliotheca Osleriana: A Catalogue of Books Illustrating the History of Medicine and Science.

Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Renowned bibliography of notable medical works, collected, arranged, and annotated by a co-founder of Johns Hopkins Hospital. "During his tenure as the Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford from 1905-1919, Sir William Osler amassed a considerable library on the history of medicine and science. A Canadian native, Osler had studied at McGill University and decided to leave his collection of 7,600 items to its Faculty of Medicine. A catalogue, the Bibliotheca Osleriana, was compiled - a labour of love that took ten years to complete and involved W.W. Francis, R.H. Hill, and Archibald Malloch. Osler himself laid down the broad outlines of the catalogue and wrote many of the annotations." Very Good+. Minor shelf/edge wear, light toning at spine, light even toning to textblock (as is typical of issue), ownership plate at front pastedown, else tight, bright, and unmarred. Blue cloth boards, gilt lettering. 4to. xxxv, 785pp. Item #10027
