|Title||Unpublished manuscript, 'On the anatomy of the connective tissues' by G Thin|
|Creator||Thin; George (1839-1903); British dermatopathologist|
|Date||23 December 1874|
|Description||Thin presents a series of observations on samples of 'transparent animal tissues' which have been 'sealed up fresh in aqueous humour or blood-serum, by running Brunswick black [varnish] round the edge of the cover-glass'. He observes with one sample that after a horizontal section of the cornea has been sealed up for about two hours, the stellate branched cells are seen to consist of a mass of protoplasma, sharply defined on every side, except where it is continued for scarcely perceptible distance into the processes, and the nucleus is flattened. |
Annotations in pencil throughout. Marked on front as 'Archives June 17/75'. With a copy of Thin's pamphlet 'On the Minute Anatomy of Muscle and Tendon and Some Notes Regarding the Structure of the Cornea', 19pp, (Edinburgh, 1874).
