Overview

Overview

The final volume in a comprehensive catalog of rare books dealing with "popular medicine" in early America.
This third and final volume of the annotated catalog of the Edward C. Atwater, M.D. Collection of American Popular Medicine includes books, manuscripts, pamphlets, periodicals, and printed ephemera acquired since the publication of Volume 1 (Authors A-L) in 2001 and Volume 2 (Authors M-Z) in 2004. Volume 3 (Authors A-Z) contains entries for more than 2,000 items. Together, these three volumes provide an unparalleled perspective on the vast and diverse body of literature published between the colonial period and World War I that, among other things, instructed Americans on the domestic treatment of illness or injury, advised women on reproductive control, and enlightened school children on the structure and functioning of their own bodies.
The Atwater Collection is the product of nearly four decades of collecting by Edward C. Atwater, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Medicine and the History of Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

The catalog was compiled and annotated by Christopher Hoolihan, Rare Books and Manuscripts Librarian at the Edward G. Miner Library.
