Included in this lot are sixteen separate pages from a Rare early 1920’s medical book. The pages feature illustrations on both sides, meaning you will actually receive a total of 30+ different plates. Most of black and white plates feature either photographs or highly detailed illustrations of a woman receiving shots / injections in her face and mouth – I hope this poor lady was at least paid well for the gruesome modeling session. The plates are meant as a medical aid and study of the the anatomical structure of the nervous system in the head and mouth. Dentists and facial surgeons primarily used this book to identify proper injecttion sites to block nerves.

A few images show anatomical dissection of “wet specimens”, or human cadaver heads that have been kept in a preservatory fluid. A few plates show pictures of techniques being preformed on human skulls. The inner edges are untrimmed, and there is some very light yellowing around the edges of the pages. Overall these amazing plates are in excellent vintage condition with no rips or stains.

Each of the 16 pages measure approx. 9” tall x 6 ¾” wide, and all are suitable for framing, or for use in your dark and unusual projects. Don’t be fooled by other sellers who charge $10.00 or more for a single anatomical plate nowhere near this old or interesting.

International shipping is available – Please contact me for a quote :)
