The Giant’s Shoulders #47 is up at The Medical Heritage Library!

A week delayed, but worth the wait:  the 47th edition of The Giant’s Shoulders history of science blog carnival is up at The Medical Heritage Library!  In this edition, you can read about:

  • the politics of Isaac Newton’s knighthood,
  • the gruesome history of eating corpses as medicine,
  • the story of  Lady Mary Montagu, who introduced smallpox innoculation to London,
  • the Great New York Starvation Challenge of 1881,
  • and much more!

A very hearty thanks to Hannah for assembling such a nice carnival!

Once again, we have run out of hosts for future editions of the carnival!  If you are willing to host a future edition (including and especially June), please let myself or ThonyC, the carnival organizers, know!  You can either send an email or leave a comment on this post.
