Pair of notebooks in the hand of Louis Cobbett (1863-1947) the author of Causes of Tuberculosis in which he details his reading, experimentation and research into the disease.

Quarto-sized notebooks bound in slightly flaky half red roan over blue cloth-covered boards with paper labels to both upper covers detailing some of the sources cited within; marbled endpapers and edges. 90 blank leaves with manuscript entries in each volume, usually written on rectos only. Provenance: probably deacquisitioned about 15 years ago from the Cambridge Medical School which disposed of large numbers or rare books and manuscripts. There are no library marking.

These volumes seem to be Cobbett's research notes which derive from reading and lab work - there are occasional diagrams. The earliest cited date among the sources is 1885; one of the latest is 1905 and among the authors mentioned are Bek, Marmaduke Shield, T Madsen, Paterson and Szekele; Cobbett's own study was published as part of the Cambridge Public Health Series appeared in 1917. Most of the content consists in comments and observations on his own summaries of published works. A few lectures are referred to including one by Sims Woodhead, a colleague of Cobgett and no doubt attended by Cobbett himself; one newspaper report has been pasted in: 'Important conference' in Leeds, from Yorkshire Post 1899. A few additional leaves pasted in.

Educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, Cobbett came under the influence of Sir George Humphrey, one of the founders of the Cambridge Medical School and it was from this influence that his interest in tuberculosis stemmed.
