Baltimore:: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1976., 1976. 8vo. xv, , 604 pp. 100 plates, indices. Blue gilt-stamped cloth, dust-jacket; jacket extremities lightly worn. Inked ownership name, Maulitz. Very good. ISBN: 0801819083 "The book, encyclopedic in scope, has many excellent features—and many drawbacks. Based on archival sources as well as published works, the amount of detail is truly enormous. After a short introduction, the course of events is described in three sections, chronologically more or less distinct. Within each of these periods, the exposition attends to individual specialties, eg, internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics. In the last and longest section, more than 20 specialties are described. This presentation of information in mosaic form is fine for those who want specific details about specific individuals or events. Moreover, the references and bibliographies comprise an admirable storehouse of information; the old photographs are splendid." - Review by King, JAMA, Volume 238, September 1977, pp. 1184-1185. PROVENANCE: Russell C. Maulitz, M.D. is a distinguished physician, author and medical historian. He has published more than 200 reviews of books dealing with medicine and the history of medicine.
