Medical Care and the General Practitioner, 1750-1850 by Irvine Loudon

Book Description

This study is concerned not with famous doctors and their discoveries, but with the rank and file practitioners: the surgeon-apothecaries of the 18th century and the general practitioners of the 19th. Some common assumptions about the history of the medical profession are challenged in this book, based largely on manuscript sources.
