The Sick Rose is a beautifully gruesome and strangely fascinating
visual tour through disease in an age before colour photography.
This stunning volume, combining detailed illustrations of afflicted
patients from some of the world's rarest medical books, forms an
unforgettable and profoundly human reminder of mankind's struggle
with disease. Incorporating historic maps, pioneering charts and
contemporary case notes, Richard Barnett's evocative overview
reveals the fears and obsessions of an era gripped by epidemics.
