Crucial Interventions with Richard Barnett
Thursday 26 November 2015
‘Crucial Interventions’, the sequel to the best-selling and award-winning ‘The Sick Rose’, uses rare, beautiful and gruesome illustrations to tell the story of the 19th-century revolution in surgery, the most intriguing and macabre of professions. Drawing on Wellcome Collection’’s unparalleled archives of surgical textbooks, images and instruments, it shows what this remarkable transformation meant for surgeons, patients, nurses, hospitals and the wider world.
Join us to hear the author of ‘Crucial Interventions’, historian and Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellow Richard Barnett, in conversation with a surgeon, and for a chance to see some of this unique and unnerving Wellcome Collection source material up close.
Crucial Interventions or, An Illustrated Treatise on the Principles & Practice of Nineteenth-Century Surgery by Richard Barnett and Wellcome Collection is published by Thames & Hudson, £19.95.
This event is FREE. Tickets will become available here from 11.00 on Friday 30 October.
