Medical Book Illustration: A Short History

Thornton J & Reeves C. Book. 2016. GHO Publications. 146 Pages.
Originally published by John Leonard Thornton, Carole Reeves, & The Oleander Press, 1983.


From the Preface: This book is intended as an introduction to the history of medical book illustration, and in a short “helicopter flight” over the subject we can only view the highlights, descending at intervals to examine specimens of outstanding examples in each period. We have concentrated mainly on the activities of artists and engravers in illustrating medical texts, and have only touched upon medical photography and other mechanical aids as ancillary to medical art.
