    Expert Review :

    VINTAGE PAPERS FROM THE LANCET is a splendid anthology of articles published in the world-famous medical journal The Lancet since its first issue in 1823. Chosen for interest as well as scientific and historic importance, this fine selection offers a unique guide to the journal’s riches, as well as presenting some of the greatest landmarks of medicine. Among articles in this fascinating selection are to be found original key papers on anaesthesia, antisepsis, penicillin, ultrasound and IVF. Along the way, there are pieces on cholera on shipboard, flogging in the army, trench foot, childbed fever, thalidomide, HIV and MRSA.

    This handsome book, which features a Foreword by The Lancet’s current Editor, Richard Horton, contains facsimile pages from the original volumes in The Lancet’s own publishing office, selected with great care to represent the contents of this world-class medical journal, from the pre-Victorian days of cholera to today’s fears of SARS. The book presents the original papers in their original form, so there is much to be found of interest in the snippets of contemporary news and comment which appeared in the pages of the journal alongside the original articles.

    Dr Ruth Richardson, who made the selection and wrote the introduction, has worked on the history of The Lancet for many years. She recently helped launch the new on-line collection of The Lancet’s entire back issues – now available via ScienceDirect. She has been a columnist for the journal, and has published essays and articles in its pages.

    Now, she has shared her knowledge of The Lancet’s historic content, to make this an essential reference work for anyone with an interest in the art and science of medicine, the medical world, health and disease, care and cure.
