Your full name
(a copy of this request will be emailed to you for your reference)


In completing this request form to the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh Library for this photocopy, I declare the following:

I have not previously been supplied with a copy of this article by any library.

I will not use this copy except for private study or research and will not supply it to another person.

To the best of my knowledge, no other person with whom I work or study has made or intends to make, at about or the same time as this request, a request for substantially the same purpose.

I understand that if the declaration is false in a material particular, the copy supplied to me by you will be infringing copy and that I shall be liable for infringement of copyright as if I had made the copy myself.
