This is a beautifully produced 3-volume set from The Classics Of Medicine Library (Birmingham, 1985), edited and with an introduction by John McGovern & Charles Roland.

Sir William Osler, called the “most influential physician in history”, made considerable contributions to science and was credited with the transformation of medical education in the United States and elsewhere.

He was adored by his students as a warm human scholar and skilled physician who changed student-teacher and doctor-patient relationships from formal and cold to friendly and warm. Osler once said that he would like his epitaph to read: “Here lies the man who admitted students to the wards”.

This set consists of: Vol 1 – The Philosophical Essays [497pp]; Vol 2 – The Educational Essays [454pp]; Vol 3 – The Historical & Biographical Essays [642pp].

These Limited Edition volumes each have the presentation plate numbering them as set #384 for the library of David John Harris. In full black leather with gold tooling and lettering on front covers and spines.

In excellent condition, thus this is an exquisite set.
