Browse a display that includes a wide selection of artifacts illustrating the early history of western medicine, ranging from ancient medical amulets to medieval manuscripts to richly-illustrated early printed books. These artifacts are eloquent witnesses of a long history of healing and extraordinary medical discoveries in the West, including landmarks such as Andreas Vesalius' "Seven Books on the Fabric of the Human Body" (Basel, 1543) and William Harvey's "Anatomical Treatise about the Movement of the Heart and Blood in Animals" (Frankfurt, 1628).

Join us in Room 660D in the Special Collections Research Center on the 6th floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library. No registration is required, and you may stop by anytime from 4:00-5:00pm to peruse the display and chat with staff.
