WALES: I’m coming for you! I’ll be speaking at the @HayFestival’s Winter Weekend on Friday at 2 pm. Ticket link in my bio! Learn about the brutal world of Victorian surgery, and the “dead house” where students learned anatomy. Many of the people who ended up on the dissection table in these earlier periods were executed criminals. The Murder Act of 1752 decreed that the bodies of all murderers—young and old—be anatomized as an additional punishment for the heinous crime of taking another person’s life. This included the bodies of children, like John Amy Bird Bell, who was only 14-years-old when he was executed and dissected in 1831 for killing another child. I’ll be talking about this subject and more at the Hay Festival! Hope to see you there. #booksigning #booktour #TheButcheringArt #hayfestival #winterweekend #victorianmedicine #histmed #historyofmedicine #medicalhistory #histsci #TIL #dissection #medstudent #cadaverlab

Ever since Thomas Harriot and Galileo turned their telescopes to the Moon in July 1609, we've been theorising about its poxed surface.
The Victorian theory of a volcanic origin for the craters produced some pretty great art. 😁

Even I’m slightly terrified to read the German edition of my book THE BUTCHERING ART based on this cover! Jokes aside: I love seeing the different ways publishers interpret the cover to this story. #TheButcheringArt is narrative nonfiction, and follows the surgeon Joseph Lister on his quest to transform the brutal and bloody world of Victorian surgery through antisepsis. The book is out now in the US, Britain, Canada, Australia, Italy, and the Netherlands; and can be pre-ordered in Germany via Amazon. There are many other foreign editions to come in 2018. I’ll keep you posted! In the meantime, what do you make of this cover? #histmed #josephlister #german #germanbookcover #histsci #historyofmedicine #germtheory #germs #victorian #lindseyfitzharris #drlindseyfitzharris #bookporn

Edward Jenner (student at @stgeorgesunioflondon from 1770-74) successfully performed the first vaccination 💉 against smallpox. Blossom, the cow used in the experiment, was presented to the university by Jenner’s son in 1857, and takes pride of place in the Library 🐮

Proud to see Allan Ramsay’s portrait of Alexander Monro (Primus) added to the collections as part of a collaboration with Edinburgh University. As well as being a great surgeon, teacher & integral part of the famed Monro medical dynasty, he was our Librarian from 1720 -1726!⠀

Have you ever spent a sleepless night worrying about you or your child becoming infected with Polio? The chances are pretty much 0%, and you have Dr. Frederick Robbins to thank for it. Robbins, along with colleagues John Enders and Thomas Weller, was awarded the 1954 Nobel Prize for Medicine/Physiology for this lifesaving work which led to the development of the Polio vaccine, one of the greatest achievements of the modern era, and the most profoundly important discovery in the history of virology. Robbins, Enders, and Weller's breakthrough "discovery of the ability of poliomyelitis viruses to grow in cultures of various types of tissue" paved the way for vaccines developed by Jonas Salk & Albert Sabin, saving countless children from lifetimes of pain and disability.
The American Polio epidemics of the first half of the twentieth-century panicked medical professionals, and struck fear into the heart of every parent. The paralyzing viral infection had the terrifying ability to strike young children and decimate their nervous systems, withering their muscles and twisting their limbs, and leaving them with lifelong disabilities. From the late 1930s through 1948, scores of virologists and other research physicians were working for a cure, many with disastrous results, including several fatalities. Finally, in 1948, a three-person lab affiliated with Boston Children's Hospital, The Research Division of Infectious Diseases, discovered how to grow poliomyelitis virus in human cell cultures, a finding that led to the development of the two most effective poliomyelitis vaccines, which, in turn, eliminated paralytic polio in all but a handful of countries in the world.
We are very excited to be offering Dr. Robbins’ Nobel medal, diploma, and other materials in our upcoming History of #Science & #Technology sale @Sothebys on December 12th. http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/2017/history-of-science-technology-n09686.html

Female medical students dissecting a cadaver, c.1895. In the United States, the idea for a college that trained female doctors was first proposed by Dr. Bartholomew Fussell in 1846. He wanted it to be a tribute to his departed sister, whom he felt could have been a doctor if women had been given the opportunity at that time. Her daughter, Graceanna Lewis, was to become one of the first female scientists in the USA. The Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania was founded in 1850. It was the second medical institution in the world established to train women in medicine and offer them the M.D. degree. (New England Female Medical College had been established two years earlier.)
