A Biographical Encyclopedia of Medical Travel Authors: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Pacific and the Antarctic
The collection is a wide-ranging reference guide. The six volumes are made up of one-paragraph biographies of medical travel authors drawn from all peoples and regions of the world. The authors are included because they have published a book of travel or have left significant material of book potential. Some space is given to travellers from abroad into the region represented by the volume.
“. . . an important work of scrupulous scholarship which introduces a new perspective into the biographical sketches of many medicos from luminaries to the unsung. The author has enriched medical historiography by this painstaking compendium.” – Sir Peter Froggatt, Former Vice-Chancellor and President, the Queen’s University of Belfast
