In this five-part series of Thursday evening sessions, we'll explore The New York Academy of Medicine's collections in the intimate setting of its beautiful rare book room, guided by two of its stewards.
Register to see a 1680 manuscript with recipes for sweet custards and remedies for the bite of a mad dog, charming early woodcuts of anthropomorphic mandrakes and other botanical plants used in healing, and the earliest serious attempts to accurately render the human body, along with many other treasures.
