Summary
"Vintage Papers from The Lancet is an anthology of articles published in the world-famous medical journal The Lancet since its first issue in 1823. Chosen for interest as well as scientific and historic importance, this selection offers a guide to the journal's riches as well as presenting some of the greatest landmarks of medicine. Among articles in this selection are to be found original key papers on anaesthesia, antisepsis, penicillin, ultrasound and IVF. Along the way, there are pieces on cholera on shipboard, flogging in the army, trench foot, childbed fever, thalidomide, HIV and MRSA. This book contains facsimile pages from the original volumes in The Lancet's own publishing office, selected to represent the contents of this world-class medical journal, from the pre-Victorian days of cholera to today's fears of SARS. The book presents the original papers in their original form, so there is much to be found of interest in the snippets of contemporary news and comment which appeared in the pages of the journal alongside the original articles."--BOOK JACKET
