Caption: John Hunter (1728-1793), Scottish surgeon and anatomist. Hunter was born in Scotland and studied surgery in London, England. He served as a surgeon in Portugal during the Seven Years' War. This resulted in 'A Treatise on the Blood, Inflammation and Gunshot Wounds', correctly stating that bullets lodged in the body should be left alone unless endangering life. In comparative anatomy his dissections of numerous animal and human cadavers led to important findings on blood circulation, teeth, embryology and digestion. Hunter is regarded as the founder of a scientific approach to surgery. Artwork from 'London' (Charles Knight, 1841).
