Mütter Museum : historic medical photographs by Gretchen Worden( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book on the Mütter Museum contain artful images of the museum's fascinating exhibits shot by contemporary fine art photographers. Here, the focus is on the museum's archive of rare historic photographs, most of which have never been seen by the public. Featured are poignant, aesthetically accomplished works ranging from Civil War photographs showing injury and recovery, to the ravages of diseases not yet conquered in the 19th century, to pathological anomalies, to psychological disorders. Many were taken by talented photographers between the 1860s and the 1940s as records for physicians to share among colleagues and to track patients' conditions, and demonstrate various techniques used in medical photography including the daguerreotype, micrography, X ray, and traditional portrait-style photography. As visual documents of what humans endured in the face of limited medical knowledge, these extraordinary and haunting photographs demonstrate how far medicine has advanced

"This book is based on the true story of Linda Riss, who was blinded when Burton Pugach, the man she had been dating, hired three men to throw lye in her face. He was convicted and served prison time for his crime. She married him when he was released and lives with him today. He was recently acquitted of charges that he had sexually abused and threatened to kill the woman with whom he openly admits having a 5-year affair. His wife testified as a character witness for him, saying that he was 'a wonderful, caring husband'. This book is neither a condemnation nor an endorsement of the actions of this or the many other wormen who stay in abusive relationships. Rather it is an examination of the frightening power of human loneliness and need"--Afterword
