Descrizione
A prominent British surgeon of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, Treves is now perhaps best known for his close friendship with Joseph Merrick, "the Elephant Man" at the London hospital where he worked and where Merrick lived until the end of his life age 27.

The story of Merrick's (the Elephant Man's) life published here is the source of most of what is known about the man, and forms the basis of the films, television adaptations and plays that followed. However, the story about Merrick is only one of many of Doctor Treves' reminiscences, each of them absorbing and fascinating. This book gives a great insight into medical changes and problems at the time and forms the memoirs of a great doctor with a distinguished medical career.
