A portrait of Scottish physician, chemist and agriculturalist, William Cullen (1710 - 1790). Cullen was one of the most important professors at the Edinburgh Medical School, as the leading center of medical education in the English-speaking world. He was President of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (1746–7), President of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (1773–1775) and First Physician to the King in Scotland (1773–1790). Cullen was also a successful author. He published a number of medical textbooks, mostly for the use of his students, though they were popular throughout Europe and the American colonies as well. His best known work was 'First Lines of the Practice of Physic', which was published in a series of editions between 1777 and 1784.
