The cover features Sir Humphry Davy, Bart. from Lady Davy. This one-fourth life-size oil portrait was donated to the Wood Library-Museum by its Honorary Curator, George Bause, a distant Davy relative who now edits "Anesthesiology Reflections." Painted by Sir Thomas Lawrence in 1821, the original three-fourths life-size oil hangs in The Royal Society in London.
