Summary Drawing in particular on physicians' casebooks, Medical Practices, 1600-1900 studies the changing nature of ordinary medical practice in early modern Europe. Combining case studies on individual German, Austrian and Swiss practitioners with a comparative analysis across the centuries, it offers the first comprehensive and systematic overview of the major aspects of premodern practitioners daily work and business - from diagnostic and therapeutic approaches and the kinds of patients treated to financial issues, record keeping and their place in contemporary society
