Ever persons capable and able: the physicians 1660-2018

£12.00

Louella Vaughan and Richard Thompson

The Royal College of Physicians celebrates its 500th anniversary in 2018 and to observe this landmark is publishing a series of ten books. Each of the books focuses on fifty elements that have contributed to making the RCP what it is today, together adding up to 500 reflections on 500 years. Some of the people, ideas, objects and manuscripts featured are directly connected to the RCP, while others have had an influence that can still be felt in its work.

In this sequel to book 6, Dr Vaughan and her co-author, Sir Richard Thompson, select a further 50 vivid episodes to complete this unique account of the College’s history, from the turbulent times following the Restoration to the twentieth century and the inception of the NHS.
