A non fiction book by

 
 
Dr James Barry was, among other things, Inspector of General Hospitals, an army surgeon, and the first British Empire doctor to successfully perform a caesarean. Only at the end of his colourful life, in 1865, was the truth revealed: Dr Barry was in fact a woman - the UKs first female doctor. Following ten years of detailed research, the authors have produced a fascinating biography - incorporating colour portraits - that dispels some of the myths surrounding this mysterious individual.
