Notes of Lectures by William Cullen

Scope and Content

Two volumes of manuscript notes of William Cullen's lectures on the Practice of Physic written in shorthand using the Byrom system. Hull has made these notes from notes taken by Robert Dobson when he was a student in Edinburgh in 1769-1770, and Dobson's original notes, which are in longhand, can also be found within this collection [ref no: MMM/1/1/7-14 ]. Further biographical information about Cullen can also be found in this section of the catalogue.

The start of each new lecture in both volumes is clearly marked but not necessarily numbered and both have their own index in the rear, although there are no page numbers given with the index.
