The Art of the Book: rare medical treasures from the TMC Library archives
Tucked safely away in a private, locked room in the McGovern Rare Book Room at the TMC Library, are some beautiful jewels of medical books – some dating
back to the 14th century. These incredible labors of love painstakingly printed and many annotated, trace the practice and knowledge of medicine back to
the Renaissance. Many are beautifully done, and passed down through the centuries from practitioner to practitioner.
If you love books, and appreciate the history they tell, come hear Howard bring these volumes to life and see them displayed for a rare public viewing.
