The Wellcome Library in London is one of the most extraordinary libraries in the world. Devoted to the history and culture of med., it was established in the early 20th cent. by Henry Wellcome. It contains over two million items spanning 3,000 years, in which rare and surprising objects from anthropology, folk art, alchemy and witchcraft jostle for space alongside more conventional medical records and archives. This book is a fascinating intro. to the library’s collections. Short chapters by specialists in each area guide the reader through some of the library’s wonders and give brief glimpses of many more. Includes comments from authors who have drawn inspiration from the library. “An invaluable record of a memorable collection.” Lavishly illustrated.
