This intriguing and comprehensive exploration of the skeleton and the
dead body includes more than 400 rare photographs. Stanley B. Burns,
MD, has studied, collected and written on medical photography for over
four decades focusing on unexplored areas. His books have placed him
in the forefront of medical photographic history scholarship. This work
reveals the nineteenth-century fascination with the dead body and body
parts. The classic visual iconography of postmortem, dissection, and bone
photography is presented and expanded to include early autopsy images
and X-ray studies. No prior visual work has presented the once very popular
hobby of collecting skulls and also shown their use in racial and psychological
profiling research. This sumptuously illustrated book with previously unpublished
photographs is an extraordinary work of medical, historical and cultural research.
