Prosthetics Manual

This copiously illustrated (the publisher's description, not mine!) copy of A. A. Marks, Manual of Artificial Limbs has been added to my growing collection of old medical imagery. Tucked away inside the book was a copy of an old order form, printed with a convenient measuring tape, and return envelope. The numerous illustrations are striking in both execution and essence. I can't believe I found this one.
