octavo, xvi, 336pp. The author places 'the art of medicine' of the eighteenth century in its social, medical, historical and political context and shows how this, together with a knowledge of the lives of the artists themselves, is necessary for a better understanding of that art in an age in which hope was often raised by medical innovation, but all too often dashed. Among the aspects considered are: medical images in Hogarth's early satires, the role and practice of the itinerant quack, blood- letting and surgery, the innovation of vaccination, fashion in medicine, midwifery and birth, medicine and morality, madness and death. This book provides an insight into the use of highly charged and often complicated representations of medicine and doctors in graphic and literary art. 108 b&w illustrations. Bookseller Inventory #
