Caption: Robert Liston (1794-1847), Scottish surgeon. Liston worked at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, where he was renowned for the speed of his operations in an era before anaesthetics. He later worked at University College Hospital in London from 1835. His publications included 'Elements of Surgery' (1832) and 'Practical Surgery' (1837). This salted paper print has been produced from a calotype negative obtained by Hill and Adamson in Scotland, dating from the period 1843 to 1848.
