Description

In 1819, the Boston Medical Library and the Library of the Massachusetts Medical College were unified and the collection made available to Harvard's medical students. This copy of the 1816 Catalogue belonged to a medical student, probably John Orne Green (HMS 1822), and then passed to Benjamin Barrett (HMS 1823). Students filled the role of Sublibrarian for both collections at the time. There were some 550 titles in the Boston Medical Library when this catalogue was printed.
