A Mechanical Account of Poisons
Health Sciences Historical Collection QVB M479
London: Printed by J.R. for Ralph South
Richard Mead (1673-1754) was well qualified in medicine (Leiden and Padua), and was court physician to Queen Anne and George II. A noted figure in Georgian London, he was particularly interested in infection and poisons, presenting papers to the Royal Society of which he was a Fellow. After his death, Mead’s home in Bloomsbury became the foundation of the Great Ormond St. Hospital for Children. Also in the Health Sciences Library’s historical collection is Mead’s On the Influence of the Sun and Moon upon Human Bodies and the Diseases Arising Therefrom (1704). This page refers to the anatomy of vipers.
