Baker & Taylor
Looks at the history of medicine from ancient times to the present day.

Oxford University Press
Taking off from the rich collections of the British Museum, this book uses art and artifacts from around the world to introduce children to the history of medicine. Both science and history, it traces today's modern medicine (including alternative therapies) from the practices of healers in ancient China, India, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Lindsay also gives readers a brief but meaningful introduction to the biographies of important figures in science by showing their place on a historical continuum. Back matter includes a chronology and index.
