This project reflects upon the influence of medical practice and practitioners in the social and cultural transition of the city of Bath between 1660 and 1705. James' thesis explores how the city's spa waters were marketed and used by practitioners within the city, as well as examining the influence of print and professional networks in dispersing knowledge about the Bath waters during the latter half of the seventeenth century.
