Dr. Peter Lowe, noted Scottish physician, studied medicine in Paris and was influenced by Ambroise Pare. He served the Catholic forces of Philip II of Spain as a chirurgian major in 1590 Siege of Paris during the French Wars of Religion. Upon returning to Scotland, Lowe was dismayed at the state of Scottish medicine. He petitioned and received a charter from James VI (James I of England) to found what became the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. First published in 1597, the book was notable as the first comprehensive text of surgery written in English. In the book Lowe outlined a number of novel procedures in neurosurgery (many dealing with military medicine). Lowe also wrote about the Spanish Sickness, an early treatise on Syphilis. Also included is Lowe's English translation of the Prognostics of Hippocrates. See: Tubbs, Maister Peter Lowe and His 16th Century Contributions to Cranial Surgery.
