In this second volume of his history of epidemics in Britain, controversial physician Charles Creighton continues his examination of diseases in Britain from the time of Charles II to the time of the volume's publication in 1894. The work is broken down by disease, ranging from typhus to childhood diseases, as well as examining the origin and consequences of specific outbreaks in the United Kingdom, Ireland and among British troops abroad. This work will be of value to medical historians and those with an interest in epidemiology.
