Observations on the System of Teaching Clinical Medicine in the University of Edinburgh; With Suggestions for its Improvement; Humbly Submitted to the Consideration of the Patrons and Professors of That Institution.
by CLARK, Sir James (1788-1870).
London:: Thomas Davison, 1827., 1827. Small 8vo. viii, 30 pp. Modern marble paper with blue cloth spine. Text is unusually clean, with only occasional foxing. Author's inscription on title page, "To Dr. Brown with Dr. Clark's compliments". Fine. The "Dr. Brown" of the inscription is most likely Dr. Joseph Brown, a surgeon and Major in the Grenadier Guards. He and Sir James served together on a committee that issued reforms for the military's medical corps and hospital practices (The Life of Florence Nightingale, Complete, 1913). The pamphlet is not priced, and the limited printing was circulated to "influence public opinion, and more particularly the opinion of public men whose judgment is to affect the vital interests of our profession" (article published anonymously, Volume 27 of The Edinburgh Medical and Surgical Journal, 1827). Clark was personal physician to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
