Illustration Friday: Primitive

Here are a few spot illustrations showing very primitive medicine from The Raucous Royals. Charles II was not the only one tortured by his doctors. George III had to deal with losing the American colonies AND these medical practices. The first illustration in the top left is an example of "cupping" (discussed below)

Marvellous work! I particularly like the three confounded doctors. I think one of them treated me for the vapors not so long ago. Excellent in every way, very well done!
