Manuscript mysteries
Looking for a summer research project? Check out some of history's mysteries from the OHSU History of Medicine Collection: Manuscript books are by nature unique, since each is produced individually by an author, known or unknown, rather than mass produced as printed books are. This small exhibit features five bound manuscripts and one printed book with extensive manuscript annotations. All of these volumes are from the History of Medicine Collection in OHSU Historical Collections & Archives. We welcome interested scholars to take a closer look at any of the books on display.

Works included in the exhibit:
  • Artznei buch dem menschen zu villen krankheiten : gestellten fur mich zu mall...und mit meiner eigeuen hand und Gottes hillfe geschrieben im jar 1668. [Germany?, 1668]
  • Manuscript on pharmacology, begun January 12, 1733 / by Johann Conrad Keller. [Germany?, 1733]
