Raiding the Rawlinson Afternoon

1 comment :
Are you captivated by rare books? Medical history? Or, perhaps the grotesque? Now’s the chance to get your fix!

Staff at the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library will be rounding up some of the most fascinating, noteworthy and sometimes even macabre items from the Rawlinson Rare Book Collection so that students, staff and faculty may have a close encounter with these wondrous rare books. Visitors will be able to examine the anatomical drawings of Leonardo da Vinci, delve into the gruesome pictorial history of plastic surgery and touch the infamous book purportedly bound in human skin.

Drop by the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library on Wednesday, November 25 anytime between 1:00 - 4:00pm for your chance to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
