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.

  1. Läskig!
    Maje Althin, 18 juli 2014

    Fantastiskt realistiska, skickligt gjorda teckningar av olika sjukdomstillstånd. De läskiga och tidsrelaterade bilderna är mycket intressanta. Verklig kuriosa för den medicinskt intresserade.
