Home to over 20,000 mind-boggling anatomic specimens, plaster casts, wax models, and paintings, the Mutter Museum, founded in 1858, is part of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. This book features over 100 photographs by a select group of renowned photographers whose work appears in the award-winning Mutter Museum calendars. Highlights include a bust of an early-19th-century Parisian widow with a six-inch horn protruding from the forehead; the connected livers of Chang and Eng, the world-famous Siamese twins; the skeleton of a 7’6” giant from Kentucky; and a collection of 139 skulls showing anatomic variation among ethnic groups in central and eastern Europe. Historical photographs from the museum’s archives, brief background texts about the collection, stunning photographs by acclaimed photographers including William Wegman and Joel-Peter Witkinand, and an introductory essay on the museum are also included.

  • Great book with lots of pictues! Although I know there are alot more that could have been out into this book.. The photos are more artistic rather than just showing you the display...meaning sometimes it is not in focus or not a photo of the whole display... Example is a close up shot of a fetus skeleton face...the caption reads :"a fetus with clubfoot" The photo does not show the feet al all! Over all its a grat book if you can not visit the meuseam in person. I gave it a out of 5 because there is so much more that could have been out in
