Alexander Monro (primus), Commentary on Monro's Anatomy of the Bones.
Primus also wrote a commentary on the fifth edition of Anatomy of the Human Bones, which, because of its huge influence on the teaching of anatomy at Edinburgh, Taylor claims is 'one of the more important documents in the Collection.' However, there is some confusion surrounding this manuscript. Primus wrote it either to help his son in his studies (as stated on the flyleaf), or possibly because he knew his son would succeed him. It may also have been a text Primus himself used in teaching. And further, Secundus, who was only seventeen years old when the commentary was written, may have written the portion on rickets. Secundus certainly used it in his own teaching. The essay on scurvy is in another hand.
