Creator Brookes, Richard, active 1750
Description Although little is known of his life, from his own writings we know that Richard Brookes once practiced medicine in rural Surrey (see his Dedication in Art of Angling) and that sometime before 1762, he travelled to America and Africa (see his Preface in Natural History). Brookes also made some translations, most notably The Natural History of Chocolate (1724) from the French, Histoire Naturelle du Cacao et du Sucre (1719). His work went through several reprints. As late as 1834, Brookes' books were listed in James Atkinson's Medical Bibliography. Atkinson wrote that Brookes had "been a most industrious and intelligent practical author." His were "books of considerable research and labour."
