The Royal College of Surgeons of England possesses an outstanding library of surgical literature that dates from the late 15th century to the present day. The historical material is of national importance in documenting the achievement of British surgery from the 18th century onwards through its printed collections, prints, drawings and archives and in providing a provenance to the collections housed in the Hunterian Museum. In 2013, the collection was awarded Designated Status by Arts Council England.
The archives of the Royal College of Surgeons of England holds both institutional records and other deposited collections providing a unique resource illustrating the development of surgery and the surgical profession.
