Dr. King’s Lecture on the Study of Anatomy
Monthly Repository, VIII (Nov. 1834), 817-18. Subtitled: “Delivered at the reopening of the School founded by the late Joshua Brooks, Esq. October 1, 1833.” In the “Critical Notices” section. A review of The Substance of a Lecture Designed as an Introduction to the Study of Anatomy Considered as the Science of Organization: and Delivered at the Reopening of the School, Founded by the late Joshua Brookes, Esq. October 1st, 1833 (London: Longman, et al., 1834), by Thomas King (1802-39). Unsigned. Not republished. Identified in Mill’s bibliography as “A brief notice of Dr. King’s lecture on the study of anatomy; in the Monthly Repository for November 1834”
(MacMinn, p. 42).
dr. king’s lecture is an excellent specimen of the lucid and methodical exposition and philosophic views of the nature of classification which characterise the French anatomists and physiologists. It also contains a surprising quantity, considering its shortness, of the most important elementary facts of the human organization, explained in a manner peculiarly well suited, not only to learners, but even to non-medical readers. Dr. King has evidently some of the highest qualities of an able teacher.
