    Round the Red Lamp

    by Arthur Conan Doyle

    Book Description

    This annotated reprint of Arthur Conan Doyle's Round The Red Lamp, Being Facts And Fancies Of Medical Life, published in 1894, also contains commentary and notes for an additional six of Conan Doyle's medical short stories as well as the text of an address which he presented to medical students in 1910. Included in these literary vignettes are three Sherlock Holmes stories that are primarily medical in orientation. These vital messages from almost one hundred years ago not only reinforce the present emerging trend of medical humanism, but also graphically portray the psychosocial effects of disease on the afflicted and the healer alike. The book is of interest to medical historians; physicians; students of medicine, allied health groups and medical humanities; and Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts.
