William Hunter's collection: bibliography and links


Hunter's collections are no longer housed in one place. His library of books and manuscripts is now cared for by the University Library at Glasgow. A small number of his paintings ended up elsewhere, and there are other collections relating to Hunter's professional life and associates which may be of interest.
