After completion of his Morbid Anatomy, Baillie extended his researches with an atlas of plates entitled A Series of Engravings, Accompanied with Explanations, which are Intended to Illustrate the Morbid Anatomy of Some of the Most Important Parts of the Human Body. This atlas, which was published in fascicules between 1799 and 1802 and issued with a general title page in 1803, is not present in the Lane Library.--J. Norman, 2006.
The Morbid Anatomy of Some of the Most Important Parts of the Human Body by Matthew Baillie (1761-1823), published in London in 1793, was the first systematic treatise on pathology, and the first work on the subject in English. Baillie, the nephew of John and William Hunter, based most of his descriptions on observations he made from specimens preserved in John Hunter's medical museum. Though portions of Hunter's museum were lost in World War II, what survived is preserved in the Royal College of Surgeons of London. --
This is the first book to treat pathology as an independent science and to deal with disease systematically according to the organs involved.
