Wellcome Medical Photographic Library

I received an email recently with details of the Wellcome Medical Photgraphic Library. You can find it here. It's a wonderful resource full of images from across the centuries. Images are catagorized as follows - Anatomy, Circulation, Disease, Genetics, Pregnancy and Birth, Plants in Medicine. You may already be familiar with this resouce but if not then do take a look. It's full of all sorts of gems. I particularly liked this image (above) by Thomas Rowlandson of A midwife going to a labour (1811).

For the very best in medical illustration and animation see the Medical Illustration Source Book at

There are gorgeous examples of current art from professional artists. You can preview the book or perform a keyword search for particular images.
