Advertising was the mainspring of the quacks who flocked to London and became prominent in the social life of the time. Included in this book, for the first time, are many rare, quaintly worded effusions, with their rhymes and curious illustrations, used by the quacks of the day in their advertising. A sample of the contents includes chapters entitled: origin of the quack doctor; famous quacks in the time of the Stuarts; quack astrologers and fortune tellers; notorious London quacks and their remedies; foreign quacks; old quack medicines; quacks of Covent Garden and Piccadilly, and Brodum, Solomon and Graham.
