The Royal Hospital Haslar in Gosport, Hampshire, began as a Royal Navy hospital in 1753. It has a long and distinguished history in the medical care of service personnel in peacetime and in war. In 1902 the hospital became known as the Royal Naval Hospital Haslar, and in the 1940s, RNH Haslar set up the country's first 'blood bank' to help treat wounded soldiers from the Second World War. The Royal Hospital Haslar officially closed as the last military hospital in the UK in 2007, and is now used by the Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust to treat both military and civilian patients.

Westminster Hospital November 1st 1811. John Ayrton Paris. MD. &c
Diploma, ADS on one half of folded sheet with red wax seal, page 225 x 185mm. Creases from folds, as normal.
Westminster Hospital was founded in 1719, following a meeting in a coffee house, where four men met to discuss a 'charitable proposal for relieving the sick and needy and other distressed persons”. In 1834 a medical school attached to the hospital was formally founded. Westminster Hospital moved from Marsham Street to become Chelsea and Westminster Hospital at the old St Stephen's Hospital site in 1994. From the hand of and signed by John Ayrton Paris, M.D. (1785 - 1856). He had been elected a fellow of the College of Physicians 30 Sept. 1814, and from 1819 to 1826 lectured there on materia medica. He attained considerable practice as a physician, and was famous for his resource in treatment and skill in prescribing. In making out what was the matter, he trusted much to the patient's general appearance, asked only a few questions, and made no very minute physical examination. His prescriptions were remarkable for their efficiency, and for the minute care with which they were drawn up. His ‘Pharmacologia’ published in 1812, and revised by him up to the ninth edition in 1843, was a general treatise on materia medica and therapeutics. It was long the standard book on its subject, and he made five thousand guineas by its sale. He published in 1823 a book on ‘Medical Jurisprudence,’ which still continues to be the only English work on the subject with any pretensions to literary value. His portrait, by Skottowe, has been engraved by Bellin, and hangs in the dining-room of the College of Physicians of London. His bust, by Jackson, is at Falmouth, in the hall of the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society. Paper watermarked 1807.

Westminster Hospital was founded in 1719, following a meeting in a coffee house, where four men met to discuss a 'charitable proposal for relieving the sick and needy and other distressed persons”. In 1834 a medical school attached to the hospital was formally founded. Westminster Hospital moved from Marsham Street to become Chelsea and Westminster Hospital at the old St Stephen's Hospital site in 1994. One of the signatories is Sir Anthony Carlisle (1768 - 1840). After attending the lectures of John Hunter, Baillie, and Cruikshank, and being the resident pupil of Mr. Henry Watson, surgeon to Westminster Hospital, he succeeded to the surgeoncy in 1793, and held the office till his death in 1840. Carlisle became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1800, and in 1804 delivered the Croonian lecture on ‘Muscular Motion,’ following it by another on the ‘Muscles of Fishes’ in 1805. He contributed other papers on biological subjects to the Philosophical and Linnean ‘Transactions,’ the ‘Philosophical Magazine,’ &c. Carlisle was long a member of the council of the College of Surgeons (from 1815) and an examiner (from April 1825), holding these appointments till death. He took great interest in Westminster Hospital, and was largely instrumental in raising funds for the new building. Carlisle was neither a brilliant anatomist nor physiologist, but was a fairly good surgeon. His introduction of the thin-bladed, straight-edged amputating knife, in place of the old clumsy crooked one, and his use of the simple carpenter's saw make his name chiefly worthy of note.

The original document is from the collection of Richard Rawlinson (1690 – 1755), a clergyman and antiquarian who bequeathed a huge collection of books and manuscripts to the Bodleian Library, Oxford. In 1716 he was ordained, but as he was a nonjuror and Jacobite, the ceremony was performed by a nonjuring bishop, Jeremy Collier. In 1728 he became a bishop, but seems to have preferred to pass his time in collecting books and manuscripts, pictures and curiosities, rather than in discharging his episcopal functions. At his death Rawlinson left to the Library 5,205 manuscripts bound in volumes that include many rare broadsides and other printed ephemera, his curiosities, and some other property that endowed a professorship of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford. The Rawlinsonian Professor of Anglo-Saxon was first appointed in 1795. He was also a benefactor to St John's College, Oxford.

Illustration after Benjamin West by M. Liart of the goddess Athena appearing above a skeleton. Signed by Joshua Brookes (1761 - 1833), anatomist. He studied anatomy and surgery in London under William Hunter, Hewson, Andrew Marshall, and Sheldon, afterwards attending the practice of Portal and other eminent surgeons at the Hôtel-Dieu, Paris. Returning to London he commenced to teach anatomy and form a museum. He was an accurate anatomist and excellent dissector, and prepared very many of the specimens in his museum. He invented a very useful method of preserving subjects for his lectures and class dissections, so as to preserve a healthy colour and arrest decomposition. For this he was elected F.R.S. His success as a teacher was so great that in the course of forty years more than five thousand pupils passed under his tuition in anatomy and physiology. He was very devoted to the formation of his museum, which from first to last cost him 30,000l., and was second only to that of John Hunter. It included a vast collection of specimens illustrating human and comparative anatomy, morbid and normal. His brother kept the celebrated menagerie in Exeter Change, and thus Brookes easily obtained specimens. In 1826, owing to ill-health brought on by constant presence in the atmosphere of the dissecting-room, he was compelled to leave off teaching; and at a dinner presided over by Dr. Pettigrew he received from the hands of the Duke of Sussex a marble bust of himself, subscribed for by his pupils. After vainly endeavouring to dispose of his museum entire, he was compelled to sell it piecemeal. The final sale took place on 1 March 1830 and twenty-two following days; but very little was realised for Brookes's support in his old age. Paper watermarked 1808.

A very rare surviving licence for gold mining issued in Castlemaine district, Victoria, Australia. Numbered 'No. 38', and priced '£1'. In 1851 gold was discovered near Ballarat, and subsequently at Bendigo. Later discoveries occurred at many sites across Victoria. This triggered one of the largest gold rushes the world has ever seen. The colony grew rapidly in both population and economic power. In ten years the population of Victoria increased sevenfold from 76,000 to 540,000. All sorts of gold records were produced including the 'richest shallow alluvial goldfield in the world' and the largest gold nugget. Victoria produced in the decade 1851-1860 20 million ounces of gold, perhaps as much as one third of the world's output. Castlemaine was established during the gold rush. In September, 1851, three shepherds and a bullock driver discovered gold in Specimen Gully, about 5 km northeast of present-day Castlemaine. Within a month the alluvial bed of Forrest Creek was being worked with 8,000 miners on the field by the end of the year, and 25,000 by March 1852. The gold license system caused considerable unrest on the diggings. It was regarded as a tax and greatly resented since it was applied regardless of the success or failure of the digger. However, the gold commissioners and Police known as ‘traps’ enthusiastically policed the goldfields, checking on licenses and arresting and fining the unfortunate diggers who could not produce them. The Police ‘licence hunts’ were often brutal, corrupt, unfair and inefficient. These license hunts came to symbolise the government’s oppression of the diggers and directly led to major protests on goldfields in Sofala in 1852, Bendigo in 1853 and the Eureka Rebellion in 1854. A year after the Eureka Rebellion the gold license was replaced by a Miner’s Right like this one which cost one pound a year for the right to dig and also entitled the owner to vote in parliamentary elections.

[n.d., c.1840.]
Very scarce Letterpress with wood-engraved heading, with old ink mss. Sheet 540 x 375mm, 21¼ x 14¾". Old folds.
A endowment policy for Sir Archibald John Primrose (1783-1868), MP, then 4th Earl of Rosebery from 1814, appointed to the Privy Council in 1831. It relates to his divorce from Harriett Bouverie on the grounds of her adultery with Sir Henry St. John Carew St. John-Mildmay. A high-profile court case ended with Primrose being awarded £15,000 damages from Mildmay (at a time when the norm was nearer £3,000). This agreement was to ensure the continued payment of the money owed. As it is unsigned and there is much deletion of the printed text this would be a draft of the final agreement. The Westminster Society for Insurance of Lives and Survivorships was established in 1792, the first proprietary life office. It was amalgamated with the Guardian Assurance Company in 1863.
