This quantity of essays is intended as a tribute to Alistair Crombie via a few of those that have studied with him. The social gathering of its e-book is his seven­ tieth birthday - four November 1985. Its contents are a mirrored image - or so it truly is was hoping - of his personal pursuits, they usually point out whilst his effect on topics he has pursued for a few 40 years. Born in Brisbane, Australia, Alistair Cameron Crombie took a primary measure in zoology on the college of Melbourne in 1938, and then he moved to Je­ sus collage, Cambridge. There he took a doctorate within the related topic (with a dissertation on inhabitants dynamics - foreshadowing a later curiosity within the heritage of Darwinism) in 1942. by way of this time he had taken up a examine place with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries within the Cambridge Zoological l. a.­ boratory, a place he left in 1946, whilst he moved to a lectureship within the his­ tory and philosophy of technological know-how at collage collage, London. H. G. Andrewa­ ka and L. C. Birch, in a survey of the historical past of insect ecology (R. F. Smith, et al. , historical past of Entomology, 1973), recognize the significance of the works of Crombie (with which they couple the sooner paintings of Gause) because the significant sti­ mulus for the good curiosity taken in interspecific pageant within the mid 194Os.

1878. One eighteenth-century reader of Dodart's article was Mathieu Tillet. who mentioned it in Dissertation sur la cause qui corrompt et noircit les grains de bled dans les epis, Bordeaux. 1755. pp. 44-45, 48. Tillet's book was summarized in Diderot and D'Alembert, Encyciopedie. Paris. 1755. vol. 5, pp. 906-907, in the article "Ergot". 44 ALICE STROUP of our Profession would be so uncharitable as to deny his Advice to such of the Poor as are not in a Capacity to reward them according to their Deserts".

But that he wrote several books on the purpose of medicine, that is, those on the preservation of health, regimen and the prevention of illness. Taken together, this is a clear sequence of knowledge from structure, the "alphabet of medicine", to health as the goal of medicine. ORDER An important part of the third book of the Canon, as Gentile's via medicorum, was the arrangement of the material within the text. The question of ordo was an important one in medieval medicine, and one that is seen as characteristically scholastic.

Dube reveals that at the age of seventy-nine he fell sick with the quartan ague; he feared that it would cause his death, but quinine cured him, and he recommended the remedy for several maladies. This took place in 1690, so he was born about 1611. On this illness see Dube, Poor Man's Physician, p. 239. On early modern "monster" literature see Lor- MEDICINE FOR THE POOR 41 There are few clues to the connections between these five physicians and their academic correspondents. Colbert's assistance to Bellay tenuously links the Blois physician to the Academy, for Colbert was founder and protector of the institution until his death in 1683.
