An age of quackery and medical diversity, premodern medicine has often been described as a 'medical marketplace'. But what is a 'medical marketplace'? And what does it tell us about medical practice and knowledge? This volume provides the first systematic examination of medicine and the market in England, North America and India between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries. Covering key themes, including magic, midwifery, and professionalization, it offers a new understanding of how healthcare operated and changed over this period.
