Whenever I link to content or post images that are not my own, I make an effort to determine the copyright owners and to either obtain their permission, when necessary, or to acknowledge the source of the material. If I haven’t done so, please let me know, and I will correct it immediately.
There was no space to indicate the copyright of the header images, but I’d like to do so now: the three images of Cullen are all courtesy of Wellcome Images, which is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the history of medicine.
Find more about each image (from l. to r.):
Image 1: “Mezzotint: portrait of W. Cullen; by V. Green after a painting by W. Cochrane, 1772.”
Image 2: “A physician (William Cullen?) [it looks like him to me - JW] taking the pulse of a gouty bachelor as he receives a paternity claim. Oil painting formerly attributed to John Kay.”
Image 3: “Portait of William Cullen. From: Medical Portrait Gallery. Biographical memoirs of the most celebrated physicians, surgeons, etc. By: Thomas Joseph Pettigrew”
