INTERESTING INQUIRY FROM DR. HENRY GRAY, whose Anatomy, Descriptive and Surgical "remains today a standard work on the subject in the English-speaking world" (GM 418). Here he writes from his post at St George's Hospital Medical School to fellow instructor Henry Hancock at King's College Hospital, "Can you inform me if you have a class for 'Operative Surgery' at your Hospital? If so, will you tell me the fees charged, for the course, and if the fee includes payment for subject use of instruments, &c. I should thank you for this information as I am instructed to make such enquiries previous to the Medical School Committee establishing a proposed course of instruction on that subject at our Hospital." The 41st edition of Gray's Anatomy appeared in 2015. Autograph material relating to Henry Gray is rare in commerce.
