Elephant Man and other reminiscences
By: Frederick Treves (1853-1923)
In 1884, Professor Treves saw Joseph Merrick in a shop across the road from the London Hospital. Being also a teacher at the University, he brought Merrick to the London Hospital as a teaching case, and Merrick lived there until his death in April 1890. This book of "reminiscences" includes the story of the "Elephant Man" as well as other interesting cases from Sir Treves' practice as a doctor.
