Alastair Compston

The Royal College of Physicians celebrates its 500th anniversary in 2018, and to observe this landmark is publishing this series of ten books. Each of the books focuses on fifty elements that have contributed to making the RCP what it is today, together adding up to 500 reflections on 500 years.

Set in the context of manuscript and book production, this, the ninth volume in the series, describes the Dorchester Library and how its rich and diverse collection illustrates the history of medicine and ideas.
