About the Author:

Michael Howell studied medicine at the University of Birmingham before going on to become a medical officer in the British Army. A specialist in children's diseases he eventually became a family doctor in general practice, a vocation he pursued until his death in 1986

From Library Journal:

In the mid 1880s, a patient admitted to the London Hospital in Whitechapel caught the imagination of the public. He was a horribly deformed man named Joseph Merrick, who suffered from severe multiple neurofibromatosis. The disease made portions of his body grow freakishly; hence, he was called the "elephant man" in sideshows, where he was exhibited before coming to the attention of doctors. Roughly a century later, Merrick again caught the public eye when his story was brought to film and Broadway. This revised edition of the 1980 original contains a more factual account of Merrick's life, including updated information about him and his condition. The text is capped with numerous photographs of the players, including some startling prints of Merrick while alive and of his deformed skeleton after death.
