The primary thrust of Dr. Sellers’s collecting was directed toward the history of medicine and the natural sciences, his area of professional and scholarly expertise. When donated to Baylor University Medical Center in 1963, his personal collection constituted one of the most remarkable private libraries of specialized medical literature in the United States. The books and manuscripts in this section on the history of medicine emphasize his interest in early printing and the transmission of medical knowledge in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
