Overview


This outstanding collection of reproducible, royalty-free medical and anatomical engravings offers a fascinating, visually encyclopedic exploration of the body and the healing arts. Featuring more than two thousand illustrations that date back to the late Victorian era through the early twentieth century, this timeless resource serves as the ultimate visual reference for anyone with an interest in the health field. 
The two-part volume begins with a variety of finely detailed anatomical illustrations—including the skeleton and skull, spine, muscles, organs, and more. Part two offers images from the general realm of science—from diseases and injuries to therapeutic treatments—as well as peripheral areas such as apothecary and pharmaceutical sciences. Smaller sections cover issues such as death and dying, alternative healing therapies, and the history of medicine. Indispensable for medical professionals, as well as artists and illustrators, this would make a valuable addition to anyone's reference shelf.
