Curious Travellers and Strange Souvenirs

Simon Chaplin, Head of the Wellcome Library, presents an illustrated guide to some of Britain’s most eccentric, intrepid and occasionally unlucky medical tourists. Discover the best way to avoid crocodiles, what not to take on balloon voyages and the pros and cons of ball gowns in the jungle, based on the experience of adventurous doctors and nurses over the past four hundred years.
