Murdering to Dissect: Grave-robbing, Frankenstein and the Anatomy Literature

Voorkant
Manchester University Press, 1995 - 354 pagina's
When Frankenstein appeared in 1818 it was well known that the medical profession lent silent support to the grave-robbing gangs who regulary sold the surgeons newly-buried bodies for dissection. This resurection trade led to the sensational Burke and Hare case, which revealed that the bodies of murder victims had been pased to the Edinburgh surgeon Dr Robert Knox with his connivance.
