Boston: n.p. 1854. FIRST EDITION. Disbound. Item #12256

First edition. Printed as part of the article Medical schools in Boston. Holmes, Jacob Bigelow and J.B.S. Jackson, acting as the Committee of the faculty, authored the Remonstrance, and originally distributed it as a small leaflet a month before this printing. Included here is a reply by Charles E. Buckingham, Edward H. Clarke and Henry G. Clark, who made up the Committee of the Boylston School. The Remonstrance was written in protest when the rival school, Boylston, petitioned for permission to confer medical degrees. The Remonstrance was successful, as the Massachusetts General Court refused Boylston’s petition. BAL, 8764; C&T, p. 55.
