REVIEW À Hidden Treasure: The National Library of Medicine Michael Sappol Þ 1 REVIEW READ & DOWNLOAD Ì INSPIRECONSULTING.CO.ZA Þ Michael Sappol Founded 175 years ago the National Library of Medicine is the worlds largest medical library withthan 17 million items dating from the 11th century to the present in its holdings Today it is home to a rich worldwide heritage of objects from the rarest early medical books to delightful 20th century ephemera artifacts and documentary and animated films Despitet. 227 well illustrated pages A large variety of topics are covered in short segments of 2 4 pages The pictures are mostly big and well reproduced Although the images are from the National Library of Medicine international topics are covered as well For examplethere are fascinating illustrations from 1829 of sufferers from the Alps with Falcadina Disease which produced rather grotesue lesions But not everything is grotesue There is lots of humor unexpected by me For example when discussing some cartoony illustrations of dentists pulling out teeth there is discussion of the publics distrust of dentists and mention of two shorts by the Three Stooges where they play dentists This book is informative fascinating beautiful and fun to read although the illustrations are what make the book so powerful Highly recommended
