Charles S. Bryan History of Medicine Room: The Collection

The School of Medicine Library's collection of rare medical books consists of approximately 525 volumes. Included are texts dealing with many aspects of medicine and medical history. Broad subject categories include anatomy, physiology, public health, the practice of medicine, human bodily systems (respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, etc.), medical specialties (gynecology, surgery, obstetrics, pediatrics, geriatrics), and history of medicine. Each volume has a pre-1900 copyright date, with many dating from the middle of the 19th century. These books have been generously donated to the library over the years by the families of physicians who practiced medicine or resided in the state of South Carolina.
