Depicting Skin. Visual culture in nineteenth-century medicine

The book on imaging the skin shows how illustrations play a role in acquiring and popularising medical knowledge. The author moves within an extensive network of interrelated disciplines. Pictures of the skin found their way into popular culture and produced other effects as well.
