Raiding the Rawlinson - Halloween Edition

No comments :
Join staff at the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library this Halloween as they raise the lid on some ghastly tomes from the Rawlinson Rare Book Collection.

Inspired by the spookiest of seasons, visitors will have the opportunity to view some of our most frightening rare medical books. Learn the ingredients for a Romany baldness cure and how to properly administer leeches. Discover the morbid ways artists have depicted the human body throughout history.  View one of the most unique items in our special collection - a book purported to be bound in human skin.

Drop by the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library on Monday, October 31 between 11:30am - 1:30pm and join in the fun.
