About 30 years ago my father discovered an unpublished manuscript of a rural physician in what was then the District of Maine. In the years that followed, he meticulously (with my mother’s constant assistance) researched and annotated the manuscript. When he retired a few years ago, he turned all his attention to finishing the project and submitted the manuscript…aspirationally, he thought, to the Oxford University Press. To his unending surprise and pleasure, they were extremely supportive and agreed to publish. As a result, I’m pleased to announce the release of History of Diseases in the District of Maine 1772-1820: The Unpublished Works ofJeremiah Baker, a Rural Physician in New England. If you are interested and order now, use the code “AMPROMD9” and receive a 30% discount off the list price. [N.B. All author proceeds will be donated to the Maine Historial Society, where the original manuscript resides.]
