Название книги: Round The Red Lamp. He is so very much behind the day that occasionally, as things move round in their usual circle, he finds himself, to his bewilderment, in the front of the fashion. Dietetic treatment, for example, had been much in vogue in his youth, and he has more practical knowledge of it than any one whom I have met.

Round the Red Lamp" is one of Doyle's tales set in the rough and tumble world of the nineteenth-century medical establishment. The most famous fictional detective in the world is Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. However, Doyle was, at best, ambivalent about his immensely successful literary creation and, at worst, resentful that his more "serious" fiction was relatively ignored. Born in Edinburgh, Doyle studied medicine from 1876 to 1881 and received his .

Round the Red Lamp book. This is an EXACT reproduction of a book published before 1923  . I like those stories a lot, and I downloaded some other books to try when I had a free moment. Round the Red Lamp is a collection of loosely medical themed stories - mostly about doctors in one way or another. One or two falls in science fiction or adventure category, but most are straightforward fiction. I was surprised by how good these stories are.

I could see little of the building save that the lamp which shonethrough a small latticed window showed me dimly that it was both longand lofty. They cast off the handkerchiefs and he pulled his coat over his fat,round shoulders. The low door under an overhanging lintel was loosely fitted,and light was bursting out on each side of it. The inmates of thislonely house appeared to be keenly on their guard, for they had heardour footsteps, and we were challenged before we reached the door. The seamen stood round him, the most intense curiosityand excitement upon their swarthy faces. No gammon! cried the man with the freckles.

Round the Red Lamp" features realistic stories and episodes of medical life, sketches of old-fashioned doctors, medical students and their pranks. My first interview with Dr. James Winter was under dramatic circumstances. It occurred at two in the morning in the bedroom of an old country house. I kicked him twice on the white waistcoat and knocked off his gold spectacles, while he with the aid of a female accomplice stifled my angry cries in a flannel petticoat and thrust me into a warm bath.

This is a pre-1923 historical reproduction that was curated for quality. Quality assurance was conducted on each of these books in an attempt to remove books with imperfections introduced by the digitization process. Though we have made best efforts - the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience.

“Round the Red Lamp” is a collection 15 prose pieces related in one way or another to the medical field. In the preface to this book, Sir Arthur says of these works that he has “reserved them from serial publication” because of his concern about the effect of the stories on some potential readers and that “in book form the reader can see that they are medical stories, and can, if he or she be so minded, avoid them.”

Most of the works in this collection are short stories. They include a more or less detailed plot with characters, situations and settings that are well developed within the limitation of the pages. Most are set in southern England in the 1890's, with one, "The Los Amigos Fiasco," set in the western United States. A few seem somewhat like a professional author’s practice pieces, short works that a writer might develop as part of his creative process, similar to a painter sketching out scenes or details that may stand on their own or be integrated into a larger work.

Individual stories are not numbered, only the titles are listed; and I do not know whether this is as the book was originally published or is simply a feature of the way that it is presented on Kindle. Several of the stories are excellent. These include “A Straggler of ’15,” “The Case of Lady Sannox,” “The Doctors of Hoyland,” and “Lot No. 249.” Lady Sannox is the type of tale that Poe might have written, with a somewhat horrifying and surprising end. One of the doctors of Hoyland is a woman, something of a novelty as a Victorian-era medical practitioner. “Lot No. 249” is a “living mummy” tale which, along with “The Los Amigos Fiasco,” is also included in a later collection of Sir Arthur’s tales of the supernatural. A couple of the works, “A Medical Document” and “The Surgeon Talks” give interesting insights into the medical practices and concerns of that time; and in many ways these seem likely to be little changed into the present day. This is the third or fourth collection of Conan Doyle’s non-Holmesian short works that I have read, and of those I like it the best of all. The medical aspect is “heavy” in only a few of the stories; in most the involvement of a medical practitioner or student is almost incidental to the main story line.

I know Conan Doyle almost entirely from Sherlock Holmes and Professor Challenger. I like those stories a lot, and I downloaded some other stories to try out some time.

Round the Red Lamp is a collection of loosely medical themed stories - mostly about doctors in one way or another. One or two falls in science fiction or adventure category, but most are straightforward fiction.

I was surprised by how good these stories are. Sherlock Holmes is fun, but the stories are usually more clever than touching. The closest we usually get to emotion there is perhaps Irene Adler in "A Scandal in Bohemia", or Dr. Watson's expostulations (and background romance). Here, we have something completely different. While I like the more fantastic stories toward the end of the book, it's the stories that open the book that really hit home. They're small, but intensely moving. After reading this set, it's clear that I have not given Conan Doyle enough credit for writing skill. While not all of the stories here are excellent, they're all good, and mostly very good. I'll definitely be looking for more of his non-adventure work.

Overall, a surprising and very welcome look at Conan Doyle's more literary side. If you're a fan, pick this up. If you're just looking for touching stories, pick this up. If you like stories about doctors, pick this up. It's free, and you won't be sorry. Strongly recommended.

Round the Red Lamp is written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who of course is responsible for the wonderful Sherlock Holmes stories. The full title is "Round the Red Lamp, Being Facts and Fancies of Medical Life"; and that is significant because all of these 15 short stories have some connection with a medical student, doctor, professor,etc. The fact is that the author was a certified doctor, having graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1881, so he drew from his medical background to add depth to his characters. The stories are not dry, sanitised accounts of patients and their respective medical problems; they are interesting narratives of regular people that become main characters in varies escapades. There is mystery, romance, adventure, supernatural and crime. Not necessarily all at the same time. Very enjoyable short stories mostly told in late 19th or early 20th century setting.

Yes. Sir Arthur was not only a parent of the modern detective story, and half a dozen science-fiction subgenres, but he also invented the medical story! He warns his readers that the short stories in Round the Red Lamp are not for the faint of heart, especially women (well, the good doctor was a child of his times). The stories range from humor to horror, with Conan Doyle's distinctive style applied to subjects he knew well. The most surprising element is how little has changed in medical life from the Edwardian period.

These are stories of the medical profession back in 1900s,some doctors are derisive of the idea of utilizing chloroform and it was interesting reading how surgery used tobe.the. Newer doctors began using stethoscopes but the older ones refused.

This man can write! Sure, we all have read his Sherlock Holmes tales - some of us many times - but Arthur Conan Doyle,
trained at one of the best medical schools of that time, was also a doctor and it's easy to believe that he was fascinated
by the profession and its difficulties. You won't believe how good these stories are!

Never having read this book before, I was unsure of what to expect. I found that this is quite a captivating book that leave the reader not wanting to put it down. Would recommend for someone who has a bit of time to kill...you won't want to put this down!
This is a book of short stories dealing with Physicians and their cases.
It is written so that the stories compliment each other like the adventures of Holmes and Watson and seem to make a novel. Excellent
