Description: William Hunter and the Anatomy of the Modern Museum
William Hunter owned an impressively large number of natural history specimens, originating among both living things (plants and animals) and non-living (see “Ores and Fossils”, in this volume, pp. 398–409). His herbarium (plants) and his collections of insects, shells, and other invertebrates encompassed thousands of items, while he had many hundreds of vertebrate specimens.
