Description

Just after it absorbed the Boston Medical Library, the Athenaeum issued a published catalogue of its holdings. In this copy, owned by Dr. John Orne Green in 1835, faint pencil notations can be discerned next to most of the entries for the Boston Medical Library books. The shelf numbers—1504 through 1575—give some indication of the size of the collection.

The entry for Jean Fernel's Medicina (1554) can be seen here on p. 117.
