William Heberden


Commentarii de Morborum Historia et Curatione
(London : Veneunt apud T. Payne, typis mandavit S. Hamilton, 1802)

Based on cases seen over a long career, the Commentaries on the History and Cure of Diseases appeared just after William Heberden’s death and was edited by his son. The workis dedicated to King George III. This copy, from the Heberdens’ personal library, contains a silhouette of the elder William Heberden at his desk.
