Work is progressing in the William Hunter’s Library project. The transcription of the ‘B’ section of the Trustees’ catalogue is now complete and work is now well underway on ‘C’.

‘B’ once again demonstrates the variety of texts Hunter collected and features a range of medical writers as well as literary authors.
