Research Facts
Information on the book cover flaps:
John Hunter was a gruff, unlettered Scotsman whose supreme genius brought medicine out of the Dark Ages and earned him the title of “the founder of scientific surgery.” Practicing in eighteenth-century London, he combined a gift for observation with an astounding originality of thought to become a pioneer in countless fields of science. He has been described as “the most important naturalist between Aristotle and Darwin … the Shakespeare of medicine … one of the greatest men the English nation has produced.” He was a singular man, and John Kobler tells his singular story in this remarkable biography.
Hunter was generations ahead of his time. His work in surgery and urology has only been fully appreciated in recent decades. John and his brother William were the first to trace the lymphatic system. John devised an operation for aneurisms still used today. He performed the first human artificial insemination. A hundred years before Freud he grasped the psychic factors in disease. And in several respects he anticipated Darwin.
He was perhaps the greatest dissector and collector of anatomical specimens in history. This involved him in the murky art of body snatching, but won for his museum such oddities as the skeleton of a man eight-and-a-half-feet tall. As a teacher he had enormous influence, spurring Edward Jenner to his discovery of vaccination, and profoundly affecting the development of medicine and surgery in A,ercia through his students, including John Morgan, who established the first medical school here, and Philip Syng Physick, the “Father of American Surgery”.
John Kobler paints a vivid and unusual picture of the London of Johnson and Boswell. Boswell himself appears in these pages as on of Hunter’s patients, as does the infant Lord Byron (it was Hunter who prescribed the orthopedic shoe that allowed the boy Byron to walk), the painters Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough, and Benjamin Franklin. Illustrious company, but none of whom overshadows John Hunter in long-range importance to humanity.
John Kobler is a Saturday Evening Post editor who has written innumerable articles for his own magazine, the The New Yorker, Life, the old Vanity Fair, and many other publications. His frequent writings on science and medicine have given him a grasp of these professional subjects extraordinary for a layman. A graduate of Williams College, Mr. Kobler has worked as a foreign correspondent and as an editor for Time and for Life. He married a Scottish girl during the war. They have two daughters and live in Wilton, Connecticut.
