Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine
by George M. Gould, Walter L. Pyle
Publisher: W. B. Saunders 1898
Number of pages: 1026
A book written in 1896 by physicians George M. Gould and Walter L. Pyle, cataloging the true and the apocryphal (they don't make much of a distinction) from medical literature going as far back as ancient Rome. Some of this stuff is very definitely false, in an "I can't believe Victorians believed that!" sort of way; some is definitely true; and most of the stuff in between is hard to believe, but who knows? Science can be stranger than fiction.
