ROBERT KNOX (1791-1862). Man, his structure and physiology : popularly explained and demonstrated. 2nd ed. London ; New York: H. Bailliere, 1858.
This popular introduction to anatomy and physiology was written by the noted – if somewhat infamous – Edinburgh anatomist Robert Knox. Knox believed that a knowledge of human structure and physiology was vital, forming the basis for a better understanding of the structure and nature of all living bodies.
He hoped that this elementary yet detailed introduction would encourage the reader to pursue further study in not only human anatomy, but also in the field of zoology. One of the best and most enthusiastic teachers of anatomy during the 19th century, Knox’s emphasis upon practical dissection led to his indiscreet and notorious association with the Edinburgh ‘resurrectionists’, Burke and Hare. When their crimes came to light, he was implicated, savagely attacked in the literature of the day, and his effigy was burnt by the populace.
Although exonerated by Burke, an influential committee of his peers accused him of acting incautiously and failing to ensure that his assistants properly vetted their cadaver suppliers. The episode haunted him and tarnished the rest of his career. He then turned his attention to ethnology and anthropology, and found some success in these fields.

The University of Iowa Libraries work to offset increases in the costs of information resources each year along with a flat budget (0 percent increase in funding). Our strategy is to minimize the impact of inflation by continuously monitoring the use of the collection to identify and eliminate journals, databases, and ebooks that:
- are low-use
- carry a high cost-per-use
- duplicate content available from other sources
In the past, these processes–along with reducing spending on printed books–have enabled The Libraries to counter rising costs. However, in 2020, subscription costs will increase 5 to 7 percent, and we are finding it difficult to identify further spending reductions. The UI Libraries must identify $600,000 in subscriptions to cancel. Health sciences areas will cut $175,000 and other areas will cut the remaining $425,000. Subscriptions managed by the Law Library are not included in this process.
We need your feedback in order to make the best possible decisions.
Faculty and staff should complete the feedback form by Friday, March 1, 2019 to make a case to keep journal titles or database subscriptions.
