Biographical note

These notes represent the entire medical curriculum of the University of Utrecht during the third quarter of the 18th century. Both Hahn and Luchtmans were appointed in 1759 and the former moved to Leiden in 1775, so the lectures on which these notes are based must have been delivered between these dates.
