About this work
Samuel Phillips Eady practised as a commercial physician in London at 38 Dean Street, Soho. He advertised a remedy for "those who are unhappily afflicted with diseases of the generative system". In a caricature 'The commercial dandy & his sleeping partners' by George Cruikshank (1821: BM 14273) he is represented as physician to Mrs ("Mother") Wood, a brothel-owner. There are comments on him in 'Annals of quackery', The medical adviser, 1823-1824, 1: 40-42, 249-250; 1824, 2: 77-79
