Neil Stewart watercolours

Two separate illustrations by Neil Stewart, each signed and mounted together. Comments by W.T. Gairdner read "Sections of lung, the surface of which is shown in another drawing. The upper drawing shows a section of emphysematous portion near the anterior border of lung, the bronchi thickened and containing pus, the mucuous membrane highly congested. The lower drawing is only so far completed in detail as to show a cartilaginous bronchus divided in its length and opening into an irregular cavity lined by a well-formed smooth membrane and closed by a fibrous piece and several partial [--illegible--] such are sometimes seen in tuberculous excavations. There was no tubercle."

Neil Stewart watercolour

Neil Stewart watercolour. Comments by W.T. Gairdner read "Female aet 43. White softening of centrum ovale. A stream of water has been directed on the section so as to render more definite the distinctions to the eye between the softened and the normal parts of the section. The normal part is seen to the left with its cut blood vessels in their normal disposition. The softened part is devoid of these and is of an opaque white appearance wherever it is not, as in the centre, different.
