History of Healing: A Medical ExhibitThis collection of 100 is filled with the most influential medical texts and curated from our extensive collections of books and medical journals which illustrate the history of medicine, health, fitness and biology. It tells the story of mankind's need to heal and understand disease and how it affects populations. The greatest Ancient Greek and Roman philosophers' writings, esteemed medical journals, medical canons, and history of medicine, are included, all digitally remastered. In truth, ancient medical texts have almost all been lost to history. The books, journals and manuscripts in our collections celebrates the history of healing, medical practitioners and advocates, and the countless precious scribes who wrote down this important foundation of knowledge so that it could be passed on to others. Our collections draw a detailed picture of the evolution and migration of medical knowledge that continues to influence modern medicine and other healing arts today. The exhibit is accompanied by books about the world history of medicine and its evolution from superstition and magic to tested theories.
