Medicine In Great Britain From The Restoration To The Nineteenth Century, 1660-1800

The sheer quantity of volumes pertaining to medicine and health published in Great Britain from 1660 to 1800 attests to George Macaulay Trevelyan's claim that the medical profession was moving out of the dark ages into the light of science. Thus this bibliography of more than 2,000 entries surveys the publication of medical tracts, treatises, narratives, guides, and references published in Great Britain during one of the most significant periods in the history of science in the Western world. Coverage is thorough and representative, identifying both the principal practitioners and theorists of the period and their areas of study and interest.

The work is organized into twenty-four topical sections. Annotations provide brief information about the writer. The work also includes subject and name indexes. The volume will provide a useful reference for historians of medicine and for scholars whose research carries them into the social and scientific aspects of life in eighteenth-century Britain.
