TitlePlate, bladder stone extracted from girl by unknown artist
DescriptionDrawing of a bladder stone extracted from an eleven- or twelve-year-old girl.

This drawing is most likely cut out of another paper by Thomas Molyneux (see CLP/12i/58 on cutting a bodkin from a girl's bladder). In the lower right corner of the page there is a square missing, which might well be the original spot of the drawing stuck on here (CLP/12i/50/2). Also the paper is similar. In the text of Cl.P/12i/58 there are references to images, but no images are included in the text or document.

Subject: Surgery / Medicine

Published in Philosophical Transactions as 'Some additional remarks on the extracting the stone of the bladder out of those of the female sex'.

Read to the Royal Society on 19 January 1698 when members of the French Royal Academy of Sciences were visiting.
