Summary

"The Veterinary History Collection at WSU now consists of almost 1,900 items-monographs, journals, pamphlets, manuscripts, archival records, and ephemera, more than 1,800 of which are described in this catalog-and is growing. There are nine items from the sixteenth century described here, 22 from the seventeenth, 124 from the eighteenth, and more than 1,100 from the nineteenth century, including journals.

This catalog is designed to increase the accessibility and usefulness of the Washington State University Veterinary History Collection, especially for persons having little familiarity with the early veterinary literature. The entries are based on printouts of individual and collated items as catalogued by the WSU Libraries staff, many of which were in short-title form. To save space, some of these have been further shortened to an extent that does not interfere with the intended sense of the title."
