Skin atlases are among the most visually compelling medical publications. They date from the emergence of nineteenth-century specialist skin hospitals in Europe. This exhibition curated by Professor Jonathan Reinarz, Director of the History of Medicine Unit, of ground breaking texts by pioneering physicians in the field of dermatology, from the Cadbury Research Library, traces the development of this medical speciality over the nineteenth century.
