An odd font used to dramatize/stylize which is difficult to read and off-putting. This is a very short and slapdash summary of medicine at the time with snippets gathered with little thought or function with crude DRAWINGS of tools and the times interspersed. The feel of a child's book.
I am a reenactor portraying an American Civil War Surgeon. The public confuses medical history and finds it difficult to distinguish historical facts because in their minds past events all blend together. This book helps clear up the facts and place them in the right perspective. For example, in the Civil War chloroform was widely used during surgery but was unknown in the Revolutionary War. I would recommend this volume for anyone who wants to clear up these ambiguities.
great sketches of instruments, define many of the treatments and period beliefs. gives period names of common ailments and also explains how different sicknesses were confused, such as fevers or disentary.
