Stiffs, Skulls & Skeletons:
Medical Photography and Symbolism

By Stanly B. Burns and Elizabeth A. Burns

The intriguing and comprehensive exploration of the skeleton and the dead body includes more than 400 rare photographs.

Stanley B. Burns, MD, has studied, collected and written on medical photography for over four decades focusing on unexplored areas.

This book reveals the nineteenth-century fascination with the dead body and body parts.

The classic visual iconography of postmortem, dissection, and bone photography is presented and expanded to include early autopsy images and X-ray studies.

This sumptously illustrated book with previously unpublished photographs is an extraordinary work of medical, historical and cultural research.
