Description

One of the few surviving records of the Boston Medical Library, this manuscript catalogue, unlike the printed versions, divides the collection by size—into folios, quartos, octavos, and duodecimos—with each title receiving a shelf mark number in each section. The Library's collection was almost certainly arranged by size and shelved numerically in these four divisions. By 1825, the collection had some 850 titles, both monographs and journals, as well as a number of bound volumes of pamphlets.
