The classic biography of the founder and first editor of The Lancet, in a fine-quality reprint. Originally published to celebrate the centenary of Wakley's birth. The introduction to this reprint, by C. G. Roland, is largely a reprint of his biographical sketch of Wakley, originally published in the New England Journal of Medicine; a biographical note on Sprigge would have been more useful to modern readers of this reprint inasmuch as nowhere in the reprint is Sprigge identified as one of Wakley's successors in the editorship of The Lancet.
