BRIGHT, RICHARD. 1789-1858.

Autograph Letter Signed to an unidentified correspondent, 1 p, London, May 10 [c.1844]. Bright writes, "My Dear Sir, I saw Dr. Chambers today and asked him whether he would wish (if he could get it) a copy of Dr. Blackall's portrait & he says he should very much desire it & I think Dr. Blackall will be pleased with his ?. I mentioned it to Chambers telling him at the same time that he might not get it. Yrs. Trly. R. Bright."
WITH: a fine engraved portrait of Bright by Henry Cook (1838). Matted size 9 x 12 inches.

Richard Bright was a British pioneer of clinico-pathological correlation. See his eight Garrison-Morton citations. In this letter Bright refers to Dr. F. W. Chambers, with whom he saw patients in the 1840s. Bright also mentions John Blackall, with whom he shared a deep interest in dropsy and kidney disease and who had published a book on these subjects in 1813. Samuel Cousins engraved the portrait of Blackall that Bright refers to in 1844. For Bright's relationship to Dr. Chambers see Pamela Bright, Dr. Richard Bright (London 1983). See also Grolier Medicine 60A.
