Welcome

     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).

      You may also communicate with other collectors and those interested in the history of medicine in the Forum page where you may ask questions and learn from others. Here you may offer your instruments for sale or look for that illusive rare antique (at no charge and without cost to seller or buyer).                                                                                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 (see wish list). Send me a picture by going to the "Contact Me" icon above right.

=============================================== 

    Most of the antiques and works of art in this site may be seen in my book "Medicine: Perspectives in History and Art"   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.

     And finally please note that the antiques on this site are not for sale unless they are listed for sale on The Forum Page.
