Overview

The development of a wide range of medical instruments is chronologically organized to their most current uses. Arranged into groups of diagnostic and therapeutic instruments, and illustrated by precise hand drawings, this new book is an important source for all medical personnel, historians, and collectors. Dr. Wilbur's unusual combined talents of physician and illustrator give this book factual verity and visual clarity. In fact, he is thrice blessed. As a physician he accurately describes the instruments, their development, and uses. As an illustrator he has carefully drawn the instruments clearly to show their unique details. And as a communicator he has hand-lettered all of his text in precise calligraphy. From the doctor's bag are microscopes, reflex hammers, stethoscopes, blood pressure instruments, electrocardiographs, ophthalmoscopes, otoscopes, endoscopes, vaginal specula, thermometers, and more. From the medical office come forceps, bullet probes, blood-letting instruments, vaccination lancets, trepanning tools, and others. The Price Guide is a tool for the second-hand market and the list of museums specializing in the medical field will inspire visits and further research.
