Minute Books of the Incorporation of Barbers and Surgeons of Edinburgh (later Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh)

We are fortunate to hold a continuous run of minutes from 1581 until the present day and we are currently working to digitise these hefty volumes and make them available here, so please do keep checking back!

In addition to these College minutes, we will be making our set of Surgeon's Hall Museum minute books available. 

Please note that the earlier volumes of the Incorporation's minutes are written in Old Scots, however a PDF transcription is provided if you click 'download offline version'.
