A total of three hundred and fifty six articles on medical sciences concerning Pakistan during the British Period in India, are listed in this paper.


The present work represents a first attempt to bring together in convenient form references dealing with medical sciences. Medical writings on Sind, Baluchistan, Punjab, NWFP and Kash­mir provinces of India during the British Period, are scattered in a wide range of medical periodicals and monographs. No previous attempt to collate these references have been made. This list contains almost three hundred and fifty six references covering medical and ancillary sciences. Bibliographical coverage includes works in English language published between 1930-1947. In the process of compiling the author has not made any attempt to select or discard titles on the bases of their relative value.
It is hoped that this bibliography will be of use not only to students and research workers but also to the information scientists.
Every care has been taken in the interests of accuracy and comprehensiveness. It is fully realized that the work may contain some errors and that relevant material may have been over­looked. The author would be glad to hear of any such errors or omissions which could then be incorporated in any later compilation.
Latin names and the spelling of proper nouns as found in the published papers have been retained.
The references are arranged alphabetically according to author\'s surname followed by his initials, year of actual publication, the full title of the paper, the name of the journal and the volume number preceded by the first and the last page numbers.
In conclusion, I must express my sincere gratitude to Mr. W.E. Wilkes senior sub- librarian, University of Liverpool for providing relevant material and helping me in every possible way throughout. I also thank Prof. C.J. Dancan, Prof. A.J. Cain, Dr. J.W. Jones, Dr. D.R. Rothwell, Dr. P.G. Smith, Mrs. N.F. MacMillon, Mr. R. Waggstaffe, Mr. D.J. Gleave, Mr. A.V. Everette and my wife Jalees Fatima for their invaluable help.
Finally, I would like to dedicate this small effort to mark the Centenary of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the Founder of Pakistan.
In order to save the space the titles of the journals have been shortened from the usual Internationally accepted forms to a few letters.
