PREFACE.



The Medical Society of Edinburgh was instituted in the year
1737 for the purpose of reading and discussing Essays on
]\Iedicine and the collateral Sciences.

The zeal of its earlier members having soon raised the Socie-
ty to a position which admitted of an extension of its views to
other objects, the formation of a library was undertaken, and
with such success, that this has since become one of the most
prominent advantages afforded by the Institution.

The Society has existed for one hundred years, during
which period, the extension of its reputation as an arena for dis-
cussion, and the increase of its Library have raised it to its pre-
sent prosperous condition.

The collection of books now consists of upwards of 12000
volumes, embracing the most approved works in Medicine,
Science, and Literature. Of these a catalogue has long existed,
arranged according to the authors' names in alphabetical order,
with references to the position of the books on the shelves of the
Society. But though perfectly adapted to facilitate the labours
of the Librarian, it is obvious that to the Student, such a cata-
logue does not afford any means of ascertaining what sources of
information the Society has to offer him, or what are the standard

IV PREFACE.

works on any subject to which he may wish particularly to
direct his attention.

To supply this deficiency, the formation of a Catalogue
Raisonne has been attempted on various occasions since the
commencement of the present century, by members of the Socie-
ty, but from causes which it is difficult to trace, and which it
would be useless to particularize if known, the undertaking
hitherto has always been unsuccessful.

In the winter of 1835 a few members of the Society renewed
the attempt, and the Society, anxious to render its Library as
much as possible available to the Students of the Medical
School, strenuously encouraged the design, and at length re-
solved that the Catalogue Raisonne should be printed at the
expense of the Society.

Though the Society trust that the arrangements adopted
have insured for the Catalogue Raisonne a very considerable
degree of accuracy, still they cannot doubt that many deficien-
cies may be found in a work of this kind, completed for the
first time ; it is therefore to be desired that inaccuracies may
be pointed out, and alterations that may seem advisable sug-
gested, with a view to its improvement in a future edition. It
is then proposed to extend the present plan of the Catalogue,
by incorporating with it many valuable papers on subjects con-
nected with ISIedicine and the collateral Sciences, which are to be
found scattered through the various British and Foreign peri-
odical works in the possession of the Society.

With a view to facilitate reference to particular subjects, the
general plan of the Catalogue has been printed at the com-
mencement, which will show the system of classification adopt-
ed. It seems, therefore, unnecessary here to enter further into
detail, than to state that the books have been arranged under
four great divisions, Medicine, Science, Literature, and Miscel-
lanies.

Under Part I. Medicine, are arranged works on Anatomy,



PKEFACE. V

Human and Comparative ; Physiology ; Materia Medica and
Pharmacy, including Hygiene and Therapeutics ; General
Pathology and Practice of Physic ; Surgery ; INIidwifery, and
Diseases of Women and Children ; Medical Jurisprudence and
Medical Police ; and Medical Literature.

Under Part II. Science, are arranged works on Natural
Philosophy, including Mechanical Philosophy and Chemistry ;
Natural History, including Zoology, Botany, Geology,
Mineralogy, and Mineral Waters ; and the Science of the
JNIind, including Metaphysics and Moral Philosophy, Political
Economy, and General Education.

Under Part III. Literature, are arranged works on General
Literature ; Classical Literature ; General Biography ; His-
tory ; Antiquities ; Geography ; Voyages and Travels ; and the
Arts.

Lender Part IV. Miscellanies, are arranged works on Veteri-
nary Medicine and Agriculture ; Dictionaries and Cyclopaedias;
Transactions of Societies, &c. ; Catalogues and Valuable Lists,
&c. ; and Journals, Reviews, &c.

In conclusion, the Society hopes, that from the extent and
character of its Library, this Catalogue may prove useful, not
only to its members, but to the medical profession generally.

Edinburgh, 1836.
