One of the founders of the University of London and physician-extraordinary to Queen Victoria, Arnott invented one of the first forms of the waterbed.

This copy was presented by the editor, Alfred Swaine Taylor (1806–1880), to his son-in-law Frederick Methold (1841–1907), who had married his only daughter Edith in 1865.
