This excerpt has been provided in the absence of an abstract.

This book lacks the detail of the now unfortunately out-of-print History of Medicine by Fielding H. Garrison (see "A Library for Internists V", reference 5 in the introduction to this article). But its heavy use of first-rate illustrations (1000 color and black and white) covering all aspects of the medical world gives it a force and immediacy likely to bring readers to it who would not read a preponderantly text history. The scope runs from prehistoric times to the twentieth century. Many of the illustrations are of famous paintings and art objects.
