Volumes 1 & 3 of a series of notes taken from lectures described as 'Hunter's & Alcock's Anatomical Lectures'. This is believed to refer to William Hunter and Nathan Alcock but there is no reference in either manuscript as to which notes might be from whose lectures just as there is no evidence of the two men having taught together. It is also clear that there are 1 or more volumes missing.
It also appears that there are two separate sets of lectures represented across the two volumes. Volume 1 contains a series of anatomical lectures which continue in volume 3 but just over half way through volume 3 a series of notes on midwifery begin, which appear to be in a slightly different hand.
Both volumes bear the bookplate of Charles White (1728-1813) and were presented to Owens College by the executors of Professor William Smith.
