A&C Black, Jan 1, 1999 - Science - 288 pages
Traces the establishment of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow as a licensing body to its eminence as a centre of teaching in the 18th century. The text then covers the subsequent decline of the college in the 19th century with an account of how, in conjunction with Glasgow University, it re-established itself as the guarantor of high medical standards of learning and practice.
