Doctoring History

The Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine (JRSM) is one of the UK's leading medical, peer-reviewed journals and the flagship journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, and having been published continuously since 1809, it is one of Britain's oldest medical journals.
In Doctoring History, the Editors explore the archives of this fascinating journal and its two predecessors, to create an anthology of some of the most famous, popular and influential articles that have contributed to making the JRSM internationally renowned and respected among its 11,000 readership. The articles are supplemented by pictures and commentaries that discuss the material in context. An introductory chapter on 'how to use the archive' has been written by Robert Kiley from the Wellcome Library, London, UK.

This book is makes a perfect gift for all those with an interest in the history of medicine, and particularly so for the many devoted readers of the JRSM.
