John Thomas Arlidge (1822-1899) practised medicine in Newcastle and became particularly involved with the health of potters in the local industry. His work led him to be invited by the Royal College of Physicians to give the Milroy lectures, out of which grew this book, 'the most influential book on occupational medicine of the Victorian era' (ODNB).
