Stereoscopic Skin Clinic Cards and Medical Slides

Permanent URI for this collection

The Stereoscopic Skin Clinic Cards and Medical Slides Collection is an educational asset for showing and describing various medical ailments. The stereo cards depict 128 dermatological conditions. Each card includes a visual depiction of the condition and other information such as a description of the condition, diagnoses, and methods of treatment. Dr. Selden Irwin Rainworth was a doctor from New York who chose to capture these skin conditions and present them in this format. With the assistance of a stereoscopic viewer, these cards provide a three-dimensional view of these common skin diseases.

In addition to the collection of Stereoscopic Skin Clinic Cards, this collection also has a set of glass lantern slides. These slides display many different anatomical cross sections of the human body. Some areas pictured include surface anatomy, muscles, internal organs, and skeletal structures.
