Napoleon’s Ulcer and Other Medico-Historical Stories
Robert Richardson (au)
A portion of this book deals with Napoleon’s health when he was incarcerated on St. Helena and with the report of his post-mortem. He died from natural causes -- a bleeding gastric ulcer -- but he also suffered from cholecystitis, hepatitis and scurvy. The book’s other chapters cover a wide variety of topics including mythological and cultural aspects of menopausal life, of aging, of hair and of blood; medical aspects of the Crimean War; instruments for measuring blood pressure; Byron’s death; the health of Marcus Aurelius and that of Albrecht Durer; and musings on Shakespeare’s medical sources with speculations on what he did during the ‘missing years’ and on the identity of the Mr. W.H. to whom the sonnets were dedicated.
