Join us and a host of other cultural institutions around the world as we invite you to #ColorOurCollections!
We’ve selected images from Peter Lowe’s (founder of our College in 1599) book, The Whole Course of Chirurgerie. Originally published in 1597, this book was the very first general surgical text to be published in English. The text takes the form of a dialogue between a teacher (John Cointret) and his pupil (Peter Lowe) and covers five different classes of operation.
Download an illustration, get creative with those colouring pens and share your masterpieces with us on twitter (@RCPSGlibrary) using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections.
And thanks to The New York Academy of Medicine (@NYAMHistory) for coming up with this brilliant idea!
