Description

Printed by J Graf after an original drawing by Thomas Bridgeford. Richard Quain (1800-1887) was born in Fermoy, County Cork, Ireland, where he was a surgeon's apprentice. He studied at the Aldersgate School of Medicine in London, before travelling to Paris to attend the lectures of the anatomist Richard Bennett. When Bennett took up a post as demonstrator of anatomy at the University of London (now University College London), Quain became his asistant. Following Bennett's death in 1830, Quain became demonstrator of anatomy, and later surgeon and special profesor of clinical surgery at the University College Hospital in 1848. He served as President of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1868, and at the time of his death was one of Queen Victoria's surgeons-extraordinary.
