About this work


Delineations of cutaneous diseases. The seventh edition, edited by Anthony Todd Thomson [1778-1849]. Copy of the text by Charles Robert Bree [1811-1886], and of the illustrations by E. Bree. The illustrations are carefully executed and coloured; some are pasted down. In the lower margin of the title-page is an inscription: 'E. Bree pinxit'. This was perhaps a brother of the physician, but no particulars of him have been traced. Produced in London.

Biographical note

The MS. appears to have been written while Bree was a student at University College, London. His signature with the date 1829 is found written inside the upper cover. He was a physician and naturalist, who took his M.D. Degree at Edinburgh in 1858, and was physician to the Essex and Colchester Hospital for many years. An opponent of Darwinism, he wrote a standard ornithological work, and other books on zoology [Cf. B.M.J., 1886, ii, p. 954].
