First, a WARNING: The Internet is filled with data, which does not automatically mean information or knowledge. It may help you gather some "facts" but is unlikely to provide you with sound ideas or a true understanding of any topic. You cannot guarantee the truth or accuracy of the data and "facts" you find and you can easily waste a lot of time that would be better spent reading and thinking.

Images from the History of Medicine
Fact Sheethistory of Medicine Division
The National Library of Medicine's resources for historical scholarship in medicine and related sciences are among the richest of any institution in the world.
Images from the History of Medicine (IHM), the National Library of Medicine's database of almost 60,000 historical images, documents social and historical aspects of medicine from the Middle Ages to the present.


Images from the History of Medicine (IHM), the National Library of Medicine's database of almost 60,000 historical images, documents social and historical aspects of medicine from the Middle Ages to the present. Pictures in the database come from NLM's collection of caricatures, photographs, fine prints, ephemera and portraits and from illustrations drawn from books and journals held by NLM. IHM covers a large range of medically related topics past and present, from medieval astrology to nineteenth century slum conditions, from the international fight against drug abuse to AIDS. The strength of the collection lies in the earlier periods, although it does contain twentieth century images, most dating from before World War II.

Several subgroups within the database are interesting as separate entities. For example, the core of the portrait collection is a group of 6,000 etchings, engravings and woodcuts purchased for the Library by John Shaw Billings in 1879. Landmark medical treatises are included, with illustrations from such books as Vesalius' De Humani Corporis Fabrica and William Harvey's De Motu Cordis. Great artists such as Rembrandt and Daumier are represented, the latter by his famous satirical illustrations for Antoine Fabre's Nemesis Medicale Illustre. There are patent medicine advertisements from the late nineteenth century and a large number of posters on such contemporary issues as AIDS, smoking and illegal drugs.
