By Jennifer Cochrane

Published by Tiger Books International PLC, in 1996.  144 pages. Hard back. Dust jacket and plastic protective cover. Former library book in good condition although the front endpaper (with the library details ) has been removed.  There is a library stamp on the first page.

This book traces the acquiring of knowledge through trial and error, through research and through the ability to hand the information no from one generation to the next and from one country to another. From the first operations on the battlefields, to the antiseptic streamlined operation theatres of today, from the first effort to reduce fevers by using lavender water to the modern anti-febrile drugs, the history of medical knowledge is a fascinating subject.
