Professor Palmer's "Office" (Medicine Stage Show), c. 1860
Just got the book A Morning's Work: Medical Photographs from the Burns Archive & Collection, 1843-1939 (published by Twin Palms Publishers in the mail yesterday. The book seems to comprise a sample of Dr. Stanley Burns' broad and vast collection of photographs related to death, the body, and medicine. Have not had the time to peruse it properly, but, at a glance, it looks amazing. Here is one of my favorite images thus far.
