Scope and content

The volume contains extensive parts, but not the full texts, of the first three lectures of the course. There are blank pages between extracts; the rest of the volume is blank. 'York School of Medicine' is clearly mentioned, but there is nothing to identify author and date in the manuscript itself.

However, the medical periodicals of this period advertised the provincial and London medical schools and their teachers, and this information enables the volume to be attributed to D.H. Tuke in 1857.

Further evidence is provided in the text, when he makes himself notes of names of patients who exemplify the disorders he describes. He particularly discusses an unnamed case which 'came here in March 1855', tracing it through to September 1856. This is the case of Mary Catlin, who was admitted to The Retreat on 29 March 1855. For Mary Catlin's case see case book at RET 6/5/1/8. There are also some of her account books and papers surviving: see RET 6/19/1/35
