Medicine In The Enlightenment (Clio Medica 29/The Wellcome Institute Series In The History Of Medicine)

£50.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The interpretation of eighteenth-century medicine has been much contested. In a series of essays covering Great Britain, France, Germany and other parts of Europe, noted historians debate these issues through detailed examination of major aspects of eighteenth-century medicine and medical controversy, including such topics as the introduction of smallpox inoculation, the transformation of medical education, and the treatment of the insane. The essays as a whole suggest a positive reading of the transformations in the eighteenth-century medicine, while stressing local diversity and uneven development.

This 1995 first edition is in a very good, used condition overall. It is complete with its dustjacket. The grey cloth boards are gilt-stamped on the spine. The corners are slightly bumped and the top of the text block is slightly spotted. Otherwise, the pages appear to be clean and bright.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
