Sir William Osler, physician and bibliophile (1849–1919), was one of the most famous and respected doctors in the world in the early 20th century. As Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford from 1905 until 1919, he took a keen interest in the work and collections of the Bodleian Library. On display will be a selection of books and manuscripts illustrating Osler’s close relationship with the Bodleian as Curator, adviser, friend and benefactor.
