520    Through its rich foray into popular literary culture and 
       medical history, this book investigates representations of
       regular and irregular medical practice in early modern 
       England. Focusing on the prolific figures of the barber, 
       surgeon and barber-surgeon, the author explores what it 
       meant to the early modern population for a group of 
       practitioners to be associated with both the trade guilds 
       and an emerging professional medical world. The book 
       uncovers the differences and cross-pollinations between 
       barbers and surgeons' practices which play out across the 
       literature: we learn not only about their cultural, civic,
       medical and occupational histories but also about how we 
       should interpret patterns in language, name choice, 
       performance, materiality, acoustics and semiology in the 
       period. The investigations prompt new readings of 
       Shakespeare, Jonson, Middleton and Beaumont, among others.
       And with chapters delving into early modern 
       representations of medical instruments, hairiness, 
       bloodletting procedures, waxy or infected ears, wart 
       removals and skeletons, readers will find much of the 
       contribution of this book is in its detail, which brings 
       its subject to life.
