Medical Slides


Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The Stereoscopic Skin Clinic Cards and Medical Slides Collection is an educational asset for showing and describing various medical ailments. The stereo cards depict 128 dermatological conditions. Each card includes a visual depiction of the condition and other information such as a description of the condition, diagnoses, and methods of treatment. Dr. Selden Irwin Rainworth was a doctor from New York who chose to capture these skin conditions and present them in this format. With the assistance of a stereoscopic viewer, these cards provide a three-dimensional view of these common skin diseases.

In addition to the collection of Stereoscopic Skin Clinic Cards, this collection also has a set of glass lantern slides. These slides display many different anatomical cross sections of the human body. Some areas pictured include surface anatomy, muscles, internal organs, and skeletal structures.
