  • Regular price $55.00


Home to over 20,000 mind-boggling anatomic specimens, plaster casts, wax models, and paintings, the Mutter Museum, founded in 1858, is part of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. This book focuses on the museum's archive of rare historic photographs, most of which have never been seen by the public. Many were taken between the 1860s and the 1940s as records for physicians. As visual documents of what humans endured in the face of limited medical knowledge, these extraordinary and haunting photographs demonstrate how far medicine has advanced.
