Historical Collections & Archives: Sydenham Collection

The Sydenham collection contains books from the nineteenth century which were published from the 1840s on by the Sydenham Society and the New Sydenham Society. These two societies were London-based publishers of reprints of classic medical works, such as works by William Harvey (1578-1657) and Thomas Sydenham (1624-1689). The distinction of this collection is that all the books were published by these two societies. The collection is located in the History of Medicine room.
