Feldbüch der Wundartzney (1497) by Hans von Gersdorff  In the illustration by the famous German surgeon Hans von Gersdorff (ca 1480-1540), note that the physician was using his left hand as a tourniquet to both reduce bleeding, and to compress the nerves for pain control. The man on the right of the illustration was wearing a “T,” likely indicating that he suffered from St. Anthony’s Fire, which was probably erysipelas, a Group A streptococcal infection common at the time
