Turning the Book Wheel
A tumblr of semi-random stuff from the stacks of the Smithsonian Libraries
This workweek is tearing me apart.
Physicians’ Anatomical Aid, (1880ish) in our special collections at the Dibner Library of the History of Science and Technology.
Random book facts!
The portfolio locks with a little silver key.
The prints are chromolithographs.
There is no descriptive text on the illustrations, but the Aid appears to have been offered as a set with the Practitioner’s Hand-Book, which made references to the Physician’s Anatomical Aid throughout.
Alas, we do not have that Practitioner’s Hand-Book.
