Bartholomew ballads by Frederick William Gale( Book )

"This is [a] ... privately printed collection of poems written by the author while he was at St Bartholomew's Hospital. These comic pieces were delivered in various revues or 'Smoking Concert'', amateur entertainments in which Gale seems to have been a leading light; he also reproduces here the programme of the Smoking Concert given as a special farewell to himself. The poems are hardly masterpieces of verse, but they are competent and amusing and provide some interesting insights into the lives, attitudes and humour of late nineteenth century medics. Not much else is known about Gale except that he emigrated to Kaikoura in New Zealand and published a book about his experience called Gothic notes : being notes made on the outward trip of the White Star R.M.S. Gothic, from London to New Zealand, March 17th to May 2nd, 1898. He was clearly one of the many St Bart's surgeons who studied under D'Arcy Power."--Antiquarian bookseller's description
