The Sick Rose: Or, Disease and the Art of Medical Illustration by Richard Barnett

£19.95

The Sick Rose is a beautifully gruesome and strangely fascinating visual tour through disease in an age before colour photography. This stunning volume, combining detailed illustrations of afflicted patients from some of the world’s rarest medical books, forms an unforgettable and profoundly human reminder of mankind’s struggle with disease.

Incorporating historic maps, pioneering charts and contemporary case notes, Richard Barnett’s evocative overview reveals the fears and obsessions of an era gripped by epidemics.
