I have been collecting medical antiques for 50 years and I invite you to see some of the finest medical antiques and art ever produced. Wonderful Medical, Apothecary, Dental, and Quack images of artifacts and art from my collection and from around the world are described in the ANTIQUE CHAPTERS at the right with additional PICTURES to the left. At the top of this page is an index with a shortcut to information of great value to collectors, historians, and to all healthcare providers. The Resources section contains everything you need to know about collecting medical antiques with a comprehensive *VIDEO* and an extensive review of definitions and quotes (both medical and nonmedical).
In the Links section is a list of destinations for those who wish to learn more about the history of medicine along with the names and addresses of dealers and collectors.

ROBERT E. GREENSPAN MD, FACP
I give lectures on the history of medicine to medical students, to a large number of organizations, and at the University of Maryland where I am a "senior lecturer" in the Department of History. My most popular talk is entitled "Useful Medical History for the Modern Physician" with a *VIDEO* and an outline here: http://collectmedicalantiques.com/lectures. Please contact me if you would like me to speak on the history of medicine at your medical school or to any other group.
Most of the antiques and works of art in this site may be seen in my book "Medicine: Perspectives in History and Art": http://collectmedicalantiques.com/medicalhistoryandart. Copies may be easily found for sale from several Internet sources.
For collectors, dealers, and historians I have a FaceBook Group where you can post your historical questions and articles as well as advertise your antiques for sale - nothing made after 1900 please.
