Hunter, John, 1728-1793. Collection, [not before 1783-not after 1821]

Collection, [not before 1783-not after 1821]

The collection consists of two fragments of letters, both missing dates: one by John Hunter, the other by Anne. The third item is a print, captioned "Jean Hunter," and is probably from when Hunter was made a member of the Academie Royale de Chirurgi de Paris. John's letter discusses the lymph system of a dog he has dissected. The letter lacks a signature, but includes a wax seal. Anne's letter is signed, but is torn so that most of the significant content is lost. The address is "Hunterian" something, Lincoln's Inn Fields, which dates it to 1813 or later. John Hunter's letter is stamped "ex litt. Ricardi Owen."
