Reader's note

This lovely double volume of ‘Doctor in the House and Doctor in the House at Sea’ are comic novels by Richard Gordon, published in the 1950's. The books are set in the fictitious St. Swithin's Hospital in London, and tells the story of young medical students and their antics. It is the first of a series of novels written by Richard Gordon who was a surgeon and anaesthetist. The main character is also named Richard Gordon, although after the first few books he is renamed Simon Sparrow, which name is also used in the screen and radio adaptations. This book is wonderfully humorous in a completely modern style and is the perfect gift for all lovers of classic literature and rare, vintage books.
