Caricature of Dr Frederic Hervey Foster Quin (1799-1878) from 'Vanity Fair' magazine. Quin was the first homeopathic physician in England. In 1820 he travelled to Italy, practising as a physician in Naples and Rome, before converting to homeopathy in 1826. He returned to England as physician to Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg. In 1832 he set up the first homeopathic practice in London and was immediately denounced as a quack. He founded the British Homeopathic Society in 1844 and the London Homeopathic Hospital in 1850.
