    The Historical Surgical Instrument Collection was instituted in the 1870s and most of the cataloguing was done by Mr Williams of Weiss and Son surgical instrument makers. Alban H Doran was asked to prepare further catalogues of this collection in 1911, and he completed the series in 1927. The Surgical Instruments catalogues have been incorporated into the library collection. Please search the library catalogue for details.
