Content Description

This is a collection of offprints entitled "A Collection of Published Works by the Department of Surgery. University of Edinburgh". It is divided in three volumes: 1957-1965 (vol. I), 1966-1969 (vol. II), and 1970-1976 (vol. III). The foreword explains that "as an appreciation of the outstanding contribution to Surgical Science and Immunology made by Sir Michael Woodruff during his occupation of the Chair of Surgery (formerly Surgical Science), his colleagues have compiled a collection of most of the works published in his department during his tenure of office. These have been arranged into three volumes covering the periods 1957-1965, 1966-1969, and 1970-1976. This collection is a fitting tribute to his intellect, vision and leadership."
There is a name index for vol. I-III at the beginning of volume I. Each volume also contains a list of contents.
