The sheer quantity of volumes pertaining to medicine and health published in Great Britain from 1660 to 1800 attests to George Macaulay Trevelyan's claim that the medical profession was moving out of the dark ages into the light of science. Thus this bibliography of more than 2,000 entries surveys the publication of medical tracts, treatises, narratives, guides, and references published in Great Britain during one of the most significant periods in the history of science in the Western world. Coverage is thorough and representative, identifying both the principal practitioners and theorists of the period and their areas of study and interest. The work is organized into twenty-four topical sections. Annotations provide brief information about the writer. The work also includes subject and name indexes. The volume will provide a useful reference for historians of medicine and for scholars whose research carries them into the social and scientific aspects of life in eighteenth-century Britain.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The period from 1660 to 1800 marked the beginning of the move of medicine from the "dark ages" to the beginning of scientific medicine. There was a veritable explosion of publications. This bibliography is one of the few attempts to bring order to the chaos of publications during this time. The more than 2,000 items included here are from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. They represent the work of some of the pioneers of modern medicine (Jenner, Hunter, Smellie, Sloan) and lead us back to their original publications. Although the annotation in these entries is minimal, Rogal has provided birth and death dates, and often a sentence or two of biographical information about the author. In a few cases, the importance of content of the item is described.... A useful addition to history of medicine or history of science collections."-Choice
"The compiler has contributed a useful and scholarly bibliography for those interested in the seventeenth and eighteenth century origins of modern medicine, especially medicine in the English-speaking world."-Annals of Internal Medicine
