The 100,000th item to has been added to the Medical Heritage Library.
The Medical Heritage Library (MHL) brings together a huge curated collection of digitised works related to health and medicine in the 19th and 20th centuries, drawn from some of the most important medical history libraries in North America and the United Kingdom.
The UK Medical Heritage Library project has contributed over 30,000 titles to the MHL on the Internet Archive so far. As a result, we have helped to bump the MHL to 100,000 items this month – a major milestone in the provision of free digital resources for medical historians and humanities researchers.
The 100,000th item is Recent Developments in Massage by Douglas Graham, published in 1893 and originating from the collections of the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh. This work is an of update Graham’s much longer (and denser) 1890 publication A Treatise on Massage.
