Biographical Memoirs of the Most Celebrated Physicians, Surgeons Etc; Etc, Vol. 5 free pdf Excerpt from Biographical Memoirs of the Most Celebrated Physicians, Surgeons Etc- Etc, Vol. 5: Who Have Contributed to the Advancement of Medical Science "The lawyer is judged by the virtue of his pleading, and not by the issue of the cause. The master of the ship is judged by the directing his course aright, and not by the fortune of the voyage. But the phj sician, and perhaps the politician, hath no particular acts demonstrative of his ability, but is judged most by the event." - Bacon. The biography of this eccentric man has been repeatedly written. He has been described as one "who lived, if any man ever did so, entirely after his own humour, and in the completest disregard of the opinions of the world." As a practical physician, he was unrivalled. He amassed a large fortune, and he devoted it to the promotion of learning and science. His eccentricities were remarkable, and have been freely circulated. A collection of the various anecdotes related of him would form a very curious and interesting volume. John Radcliffe was a native of Yorkshire, and born at Wakefield in 1650. He received instruction in the Greek and Latin languages at the grammar-school of this town, and when he had reached his fifteenth year, he was sent to University College, Oxford. At this college he took his first degree in arts, and afterwards removed to Lincoln College, of which he was subsequently elected a Fellow. Quickness of intellect, for which he was ever remarkable, enabled him rapidly to acquire information in the several branches of medical study- and having, it is said, made considerable progress in botany, chemistry, and anatomy, he took a degree of M. A. in 1672, and then enrolled himself for medicine. Pretensions to learning, he had none- and whatever deficiency he may have manifested in this respect, was compensated by a wit, vivacity, and shrewdness which characterized every act of his life. He appears, indeed, to have entertained but a mean opinion of the practice of physic, and consulted very few books.
