This year marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of the first codified description of the condition that we now know as Parkinson's disease. Its author, James Parkinson, called it the Shaking Palsy. Parkinson's talents, however, stretched well beyond neurology. He was a political agitator, general science writer and an influential geologist - all aspects of his work that are showcased in this selection of his writings from the collections of the Bodleian Library.
