Medical prescription, satirical artwork

Medical prescription. Satirical artwork titled 'Of Prescribing Foolishly', showing a patient in bed with a doctor in a fool's hat (right) holding aloft a proposed treatment. This artwork was by the German painter Albrecht Durer (1471-1528). It illustrated chapter 52 of 'Das Narrenschiff' (Ship of Fools, 1494), a collection of morality tales of medieval vices as told by the German humanist Sebastian Brant (1457-1521). This artwork, from the 1497 Latin edition, was reproduced in the German book 'Die Karikatur und Satire in der Medizin' (Caricature and Satire in Medicine, 1921) by the German art historian and physician Eugen Hollander (1867-1932).

The Monitor: Automatic but not fool-proof by H.M. Bateman

"The Monitor. Automatic, but not fool-proof: a war-drama in nine fits." This Bateman cartoon from World War One sends up the jingoistic, often misguided, enthusiasm for war amongst the upper classes. A monocled gentleman insists that his friend has no idea how to fire a revolver and, offering to demonstrate, ends up nearly having both of them killed! Date: 1914
