I was stimulated to write these Outlines of Greek and Roman Medicine by a recent sojourn in the south-eastern part of Europe. The name of the book defines, to some extent, its limitations, for my desire has been to give merely a general outline of the most important stages in the advancement of the healing art in the two Empires to which modern civilization is most deeply indebted.


James Sands Elliott was born at Randalstown, County Antrim, Ireland, on 28 May 1880, the son of James Kennedy Elliott, a Presbyterian minister, and his wife, Margaret Dickson. When he was four he was brought to Wellington, New Zealand, where his father became minister to the Kent Terrace Presbyterian Church. Elliott was educated at Wellington College and spent one year at the University of Otago Medical School. His father then sent him to the University of Edinburgh to complete his medical course. As a senior student he served with the medical corps in the South African War (1899–1902).
