    Folkestone, Kent & New Castle, DE: St. Paul's Bibliographies/: Oak Knoll Press, (1998). Hardcover first edition - A book in which "leading scholars from different specialties provide fascinating glimpses of the interaction between science, medicine and the culture of print.. . Michael Harris reveals the medical hazards that constantly threatened the health and safety of London printers in the 19th century. Peter Isaac reveals the close connections between bookselling and the marketing of proprietary and patent medicines. Vanessa Harding uses the evidence provided by Richard Smyth's 'Obituary' to reconstruct a complex network of printers and customers in plague-ridden London. Sylvia De Renzi uses the career of Robert S. Whipple, a prominent manufacturer of scientific instruments, to show how an individual collector could contribute to the emergence of the history of science as a distinct discipline in the 20th century. Lotte Hellinga uses the evidence provided by incunabula to construct chronologies of the spread of ideas as well as to track the spread of particular diseases as they swept across 15th-century Europe. Roy Porter, in a wide-ranging argument, explores the relationship of print and readers, including dire warnings from the past about the effect of reading on mental health. Finally, John Symons recounts Sir Henry Wellcome's 40-year omnivorous collecting mania, which formed the basis of the Wellcome Institute's library and underlines his immense contribution to the development of the history of medicine as a field of interest." Illustrated. References at the end of each selection. Index. xii, 158 pp. ISBN: 1-884718817.
