Catalogue of Books in the Boylston Medical Library (1824)
Before the formation of the Boston Medical Library, Harvard's Boylston Medical Library was the principal local collection not in private hands. The collection remained with the University in Cambridge after the Medical School removed to Boston in 1810. This copy of the Boylston's 1824 catalogue was presented by the library's founder, Ward Nicholas Boylston, to Dr. John Collins Warren. The collection at that time had over 550 titles. By contrast, at this time, the library of the Massachusetts Medical Society had about 300 works and the Essex Southern District Medical Society's library about 100, while the Boston Medical Library held over 800 titles.
