The Gold-Headed Cane, by William Macmichael 
   [Author: Introduction by Sir William Osler and Preface by Francis R. 
   [William Macmichael (1783-1879) was an English physician and 
historian.  In 1827 he anonymously published _The Gold-Headed Cane_. 
The cane relates his life with six famous physicians: John Radcliffe, 
Richard Mead, Anthony Askew, William Pitcairn, David Pitcairn, and 
Matthew Baillie.  The narrative is biographical and historical but 
provides only limited information about medical practices of the time. 
Its first owner, John Radcliffe, is best remembered today through the 
beneficence of his estate, which founded the Radcliffe Infirmary as well 
as an observatory and science library at Oxford.]
