Scope and Content

Typescripts for Platt's lecture titled 'Primary malignant tumours of bone'. There are four typescripts which correspond to three instances when the lecture was given. The first typescript is of the lecture as given to the Royal College of Surgeons in May 1947, heavily annotated and corrected for a lecture of the same title given in Perth in 1948. The second and third typescripts are English and French translations of the lecture as given to the Congres Francais de Chirurgie, Paris, on 11 October 1947. The third typescript is for the lecture given to the Australian Orthopaedic Association in Perth August 1948, and published in Medical Journal of Australia, 4 March 1950. The typescript is annotated by Platt and was used in his compilation of the Bradshaw Lecture of November 1950 (see PLA/5/5/8).
