Summary "Daniel Turner's prolific writings provide valuable insight into the practice of a commonplace Enlightenment London surgeon. Turner's career-long crusade against quackery and his voluminous writings on syphilis, a common 'surgical disorder', provide a refined view into distinction between orthodox and quack practices in eighteenth-century London."-- Provided by publisher
