This is a unique history of French medicine between the sixteenth century and the French Revolution. Brockliss focuses on physicians, surgeons, and apothecaries, providing an overview of long-term changes in their ideas about medicine and their craft. But he also discusses other denizens of the medical world-- quacks, charlatans, wise women, midwives, herbalist and others--setting them within the broader context of social, economic, demographic, and cultural change.

Review:


"[A] monumental study....[An] absolutely stunning wealth of historical phenomena and...thrilling anecdotes...[It] deserves to be called 'magisterial'."--Sixteenth Century Journal


"[T]he authors offer a new synthesis...this worthwhile book ends with an insightful analysis of Antoine Gros's painting Les pestiferes de Jaffa...A monumental contribution to French historiography, the text will become the definitive reference for future investigations of the medical world of the early modern period."--The Journal of Modern History


"This is a truly magnificent and groundbreaking book, without question one of the finest I have read since entering this field in 1980."--Isis
