Selected Correspondence from the Papers of Thomas Pettigrew (1791-1865), Surgeon and Antiquary

Gabriel Moshenska

Abstract

The papers of the nineteenth century antiquary and surgeon Thomas Pettigrew are of considerable interest in the histories of science, medicine and archaeology. The letters presented here were received by Pettigrew between 1817 and 1859, and form part of the Pettigrew Papers held at Yale University. They were transcribed during research into Pettigrew’s life and work, focusing in particular on his contributions to archaeology and Egyptology, and are presented in the form of texts. They are likely to be of interest and use to scholars of early nineteenth century intellectual history, and historians of archaeology in particular.
