The fate of anatomical collections.

Farnham, Surrey, England: Ashgate, 2015.

A collective work, edited by Knoeff and Zwijenberg, which includes several chapters of great interest. Relevant to the history of John Hunter's museum see Andrew Cunningham, "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Or, what Richard Owen did to John Hunter's collection". Cunningham shows how Richard Owen (see No. 326), influenced by the new science of comparative anatomy developed by Cuvier in Cuvier's Leçons d’anatomie comparée (5 vols., 1800-05; No. 321) intentionally or unintentionally shaped Hunter's museum to fit the new paradigm.
