The Art of Medicine

Medieval manuscripts from the collections at Beinecke and treasures from the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library show the importance of the visual in early medicine. Alchemy, astrology, hawking, and horse care jostle with anatomy, forecasting of the outcome of illness, and the business of healing. The way medical books were designed and decorated to meet the needs of contemporary owners and users enhanced their meaning for readers at the time and makes a striking visual impact today.
