A lecture by Elizabethanne Boran entitled ‘Collecting Medicine in Early Eighteenth-Century Dublin: The Edward Worth Library’, hosted by the History of Medicine Section of RAMI (Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland), will take place at 6.15pm on 17 September at Setanta Place, Dublin 2.
In this lecture Elizabethanne Boran explores the medical world of Dr Edward Worth (1676-1733), a physician in early eighteenth-century Dublin, as reflected in his library. She will plot the various influences on the development of his medical collection and explore what his books tell us of Worth’s medical preoccupations, and, more generally, about medicine in Dublin in the early eighteenth century.
All are welcome to attend, especially students.
