Synopsis

"The authors/editors have performed an invaluable service not only to the scholarly community, but to anyone who cares about the treatment of those we call mentally ill. Their transcription and editing of the candid case book of a prominent mid-eighteenth-century physician provide an extraordinarily circumstantial and illuminating glimpse into a vanished world of private psychiatric practice, at once alien yet surprisingly familiar."--Charles E. Rosenberg, author of "The Care of Strangers"
