  • Scope and Contents

    These lectures do not appear to have been printed in the form in which they exist in this manuscript, nor is there any mention in J Thomson's ‘An account of the life, lectures, and writings, of William Cullen, M.D.’ that Cullen undertook a course of this kind. In addition it is not clear what relationship these lectures have with those which Cullen gave on Materia Medica, or with the ‘Edinburgh Pharmacopoeia’ of 1774, in whose publication Cullen took a principal part.

    The lectures are very brief, and were obviously intended to be no more than an introduction to the subject.
