The Mutter Museum: Of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia
by Gretchen Worden
Publisher's Description
The Mutter Museum, in Philadelphia, owes its existence to Dr. Mutter, a 19th century professor of surgery who willed his anatomical collection to the College in 1856. Specimens were once an integral part of medical education but have largely fallen by the wayside. The Mutter Museum has survived intact and, for the past decade, has been opening its doors to certain fine-art photographers. This book is essentially a celebration of the work that has been produced by these photographers and should be seen as a continuation of the Museum's longstanding goal of educating the public.
