No comments :
Tricks and treats are afoot at the Halloween edition of Raiding the Rawlinson...

Staff at the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library have unearthed another cavalcade of weird and wonderful texts from the Rawlinson Rare Book Collection to tantalize antiquarian tastes. Explore the secrets of nineteenth century alternative knowledge systems including mesmerism and phrenology. Learn about some of the early strategies medical professionals used to rebuild broken bodies, including the wonders of First World War plastic surgery - not for the faint of heart!

Visit the Scott Library between 11:30am and 1:30pm on October 31 to get up close and personal with these fascinating, far-out folios.
