I have been collecting medical antiques for over 40 years and I invite you to see some of the finest instruments and art ever produced -- described as "legendary" by the curator of the medical collection at the Smithsonian. Medical, apothecary, dental and quack antiques from my collection and from around the world are individually pictured with a detailed description in the main web site in The Antique Gallery at the right. Also at the bottom of the page is a panoramic view of my collection. To visit the site, just click under the image or go to The Museum Room (at the lower right) where you will enter a 4 page site for a better view of my instruments (and enlarge to full screen and go in any direction).
see wish list). Send me a picture by going to the "Contact Me" icon above right.I would be happy to provide information on the nature or value of your instruments and of course PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SELL since I am always anxious to add to my collection (
Most of the antiques and works of art in this site may be seen in my book "Medicine: Perspectives in History and Art." You may order a personally signed copy here: http://medicalhistoryandart.com
I feel that an understanding of the past is important to those who practice medicine today, so I give LECTURES on the history of medicine to medical students, faculty, and to various medical organizations. The most popular talk is entitled "Useful Medical History for the Modern Physician" with an outline seen at the right lower corner of the below page. Two other popular lectures may be see at the left of that same page: http://medicalhistoryandart.com/lectures.php Please contact me if you might like me to give any of these talks or others on the history of medicine to your group.
