From ancient Egyptian reliefs showing surgical instruments to illustrations of the four humours in medieval manuscripts, and from Renaissance anatomical drawings to the exotic contraptions of early 20th century quacks, this volume draws on the art and craftsmanship that has been applied to the healing sciences to tell the story of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and quackery. The book is arranged by medical speciality and covers Eastern as well as Western medical practice.
