The Hunterian Collection, which forms the basis, and still a large proportion, of the contents of the present Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, was originally arranged in a building which its Founder, John Hunter, erected for it in 1784, behind his house in Leicester Square.
John Hunter died October 16th, 1793, aged 65. By his will he directed the Museum to be offered in the first instance to the British Government, on such terms as might be considered reasonable, and in case of refusal, to be sold in one lot, either to some foreign state, or as his executors might think proper.
In the year 1799 Parliament voted the sum of £15,000 for the Museum, and an offer of it being made to the Corporation of Surgeons, it was accepted on the terms proposed by Government*.
In 1806 the sum of £15,000 was voted by Parliament in aid of the erection of an edifice for the display and arrangement of the Hunterian Collection; a second grant of £12,500 was subsequently voted, and upwards of £21,000 having been supplied from the funds of the College, the building was completed in Lincoln’s-InnFields, in which the Museum was opened for the inspection of visitors in the year 1813.
* The following are the Terms and Conditions on which the Hunterian Collection, purchased by Parliament, was delivered to the late Corporation of Surgeons; which Corporation having become dissolved, the Members thereof were re-incorporated by Charter, dated the 22nd day of March, 1800, under the Title of the Royal College of Surgeons in London :
1st. The Collection shall be open Four Hours in the Forenoon of two days every week for Inspection and Consultation of the Fellows of the College of Physicians, the Members of the Company of Surgeons and Persons properly introduced by them; a Catalogue of the Preparations, an a proper Person to explain it, being at those times always in the Room.
2nd. That one course of Lectures, not less than twenty-four in number, on Comparative Anatomy and other subjects, illustrated by the Preparations, shall be given every year by some Member of the Company.
3rd. That the Preparations shall be kept in a state of Preservation, and the Collection in as perfect a state as possible, at the Expense of the Corporation of Surgeons, subject to the annual Inspection and Superintendence of the Trustees.
4th. That there shall be a Board of Trustees, to consist of sixteen (increased to seventeen by the Lords of the Treasury in 1856) Members, by virtue of their Public Offices, and of fourteen others, to be appointed, in the first instance, by the Lords of the Treasury, and afterwards to be elected, as Vacancies may happen, by a Majority of the remaining Trustees.
5th. That the Museum shall always be open for the Inspection of all or any of the said Trustees, who are to take care that the Corporation of Surgeons perform their Engagements respecting the said Collection. That a day be appointed for the annual Inspection of the Museum, by the Trustees acting collectively as a Board; and that they are also to have quarterly Meetings, for the transacting of any Business relative to the Museum, and for the filling up of such Vacancies as may happen in the number of the Trustees; and that the Corporation of Surgeons shall engage some Person to officiate as Secretary to the Board upon such occasions, and to issue previous Notice to the Members, in which he is to state particularly whether any Vacancies are to be filled up by new Elections.
