In 1637 Henry Hooper, a surgeon, arrived in Maryland and performed an inquest on a man killed by a tree. Dr. Thomas Cullen, in the handsome booklet containing this fact, records the progress of medicine in Maryland from that day to the present. The book is illustrated by numerous photographs of interest and of historical value, and the record is told in pleasant, somewhat reminiscent style. The book will be treasured by any one interested in the history of medicine.
