Abstract

John Hunter (1728-1793) was an anatomist and surgeon. He was regarded as the greatest medical scientist of his time, after being trained under his brother William the obstetrician, and surgeons William Cheselden and Percival Pott, His wide-ranging interests are reflected in this book, which contains fourteen papers on zoology and comparative anatomy. In the plate explanation here, he describes his important discovery of the circulatory relationship of the fetal placenta and the maternal uterus. Today, the Royal College of Surgeons sponsors an annual lecture in his honour.
