'... for the gripping (if gory) details of the haptic and material history of anatomy, this book should be on the shelf of any serious historian of anatomical education or student of the social history of British medicine.' Social History of Medicine 'Scholars researching the history of anatomy will find much of this book a useful and welcome addition, particularly its focus both within and outwith metropolitan London, and the archaeological and statistical evidence of some common anatomical practices. For those working on the history of anatomy museums, Chaplin's work on the Hunterian Museum and the 'museum oeconomy' is especially important.' British Journal for the History of Science
