Notes from lectures on surgical anatomy given by Hubert von Luschka at the University of Tübingen during the winter of 1861/2 by Ed. Ott, a medical student. There is no attempt to divide the notes up into individual lectures, instead they offer a detailed anatomical description, beginning with the head on page one and during the course of the manuscript working down the body taking in the neck, shoulders, chest, abdomen, epigastric region, and the pelvis. Reference is made to the different bones, muscles, and organs in each region of the body, with reference to the arteries, veins, and nerves towards the end of the notes.
Inscriptions on the inside front cover indicate that the manuscript was acquired by the Manchester Medical Society in December 1878 and that it was subsequently allocated the reference GO 4708 viz. their 1890 library catalogue.
