British Medical Journal (Review of Second edition) 'This significantly updated third edition lists biographical references in the areas of biomedical science and the history of medicine...over 1,370 biographies added from the previous edition...The entries are listed alphabetically with good cross-references. This bibliography offers very good coverage of deceased individuals, and fairly good coverage of living individuals...Recommended.' Choice '... beautifully produced, hard-bound on acid-resistant paper, a pleasure to handle, compact enough to only take up an inch and half or so on the shelf, reasonably priced, and, of course, meticulously edited by a pair of accomplished bibliographers...' Reference Reviews 'This bibliography is a particularly good resource for information on European medical and biomedical biography, and has two very useful lists in the back: one of collective biographies, and one of publications on the history of various medicinal specialities.
