Overview

An outstanding collection of reproducible, royalty-free medical and anatomical engravings, this volume features more than 4,800 engravings of images from anatomy—including the areas of apothecary and pharmaceutical sciences, diseases and injuries, therapeutics, and medical equipment. Its fascinating, visually encyclopedic explorations of all the major areas of medicine makes it an indispensable reference for artists and designers, doctors and nurses, students of medicine and anatomy, and historians.
The three-part volume begins with anatomical illustrations, followed by images from the general realm of medicine, organized alphabetically by subject category. Diseases and therapeutics receive separate treatments and are further categorized by their respective disciplines. The final section covers medical equipment, instruments, and appliances, all arranged according to discipline and encompassing pharmaceutical and laboratory equipment. Each page features a general caption, and individual illustrations are keyed to a Glossary of Page References.
Dover (2004) unabridged republication of Images of Medicine, originally published by Bonanza Books, New York, 1991.
