    Excerpt from The Foot and Its Covering: Comprising a Full Dr. Camper's Work on "the Best Form of Shoe"

    Having myself received much benefit from study ing the anatomical specimens in the Surgeons' Hall, it occurred to me that a visit of my men to that place would put things right. Accordingly, I procured tickets of admission for them, and the result was a complete revolution in the men's minds some who had hastily left my work regretting it afterwards.

    It was not the amount of information my men received by a single visit to the Surgeons' Hall that produced the favourable change in their minds, but the stimulus which that visit gave to the investiga tion of their own feet, and the nature of the covering the human foot required. Although they had been daily employed in making boots and shoes, their attention had never before been turned to the difier ence that existed between the lasts upon which boots and shoes were made, and the feet upon which they were to be worn. They were familiar with the former, went to the Surgeons' Hall to make them selves acquainted with the internal structure of the latter, and returned to their work with minds divested of former prejudices, and thus much the wiser to begin the world again.
