Artisans of the body in early modern Italy reviewed by Katharine Park

Summer 2010, Artisans of the body in early modern Italy is NEW IN PAPERBACK!

‘A phenomenally detailed picture of the lives of barbers and surgeons, based not on the prescriptive regulations of guilds or colleges, but on the careers, work and family relationships of the individuals involved . . . . Cavallo’s work provides a splendid model for further research.’

Katharine Park, Department of the History of Science, Harvard University
