First published in 1911, Dr. Walsh's Old-Time Makers of Medicine remains a valued book for readers interested in the history of medicine and surgery. The stream of medical thought, from the fall of the Roman Empire under Augustulus until the discovery of America more than a thousand years later, is explored in chapters on the students and teachers of the medieval sciences.
