New Exhibit – Picture This: Photographs in 19th Century Illustration

chininum plate1

While they continued to use lithographs, engravings, and woodcuts, nineteenth-century authors and publishers took advantage of advances in photographic and printing technology to improve the accuracy and quality of illustration. A sampling of medical publications from the Health Sciences Library’s Rare Books Collection is featured in the exhibit case on the 3rd floor, between the elevator and the Special Collections Room.
