More information

John Arbuthnot, often known simply as Dr. Arbuthnot is best remembered for his contributions to mathematics, his membership in the Scriblerus Club (where he inspired both Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels book III and Alexander Pope's Peri Bathous, Or the Art of Sinking in Poetry, Memoirs of Martin Scriblerus, and possibly The Dunciad), and for inventing the figure of John Bull.

In 1734, his health began to decline. He had kidney stones and asthma, and he was also overweight. He died at his house in Cork Street, in London on February 27, 1735. He is buried St James's Church, Piccadilly. Pope published soon after his "Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot".
