About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1915 as part of the Cambridge Public Health Series, this book provides a step-by-step guide to a post-mortem examination. Beattie also includes a chapter on how to examine thoroughly the corpses of people who have died of diseases such as leukaemia or sleeping sickness. An interesting appendix on the preparation and preservation of museum specimens is also supplied. This book will be of interest to anyone with an interest in the history of medicine and the historical performance of the autopsy.
