Comments: "Pringle's great work in life was the reform of military medicine and sanitation. His experience...was reinforced by systematic observation and scientific research. He was among the first to see the importance of putrefactive processes in the production of disease, and probably quite the first to apply his scientific practices in the prevention of such diseases as dysentry and hospital fever..."D.N.B. "His books lay down the principles of military sanitation and the ventilation of barracks, gaols, hospital ships, etc. He did much to improve the lot of soldiers, and it was due to remarks in his book that foot soldiers were given blankets when on duty..." GM 2150. Cushing P. 399.

If this website is the closest I ever come to shopping in NY, NY, it has been a pleasure. I have checked the store on-line, and you may have to block me out -- it looks very tempting. It may replace my childhood fantasy of getting locked in our small town library. One little old lady and sevens floors of old books--Heaven. Thanks! - Katherine James
