    It would be easy for a reviewer to criticize The Cabinet of Curiosities for its overly-melodramatic plotting and its sometimes stock characters (why is every female scientist ALWAYS so beautiful she could pose for a men's magazine?), but one shouldn't get into an overly critical mode when judging this book, for one primary reason: it's so much fun to read. The /r/books Book Club Selection for January is The Mystery of the Exploding Teeth and Other Curiosities from the History of Medicine by Thomas Morris From Goodreads: A mysterious epidemic of dental explosions, A teenage boy who got his wick stuck in a candlestick A remarkable woman who, like a human fountain, spurted urine from virtually.

    ANOMALIES and CURIOSITIES of MEDICINE Being an encyclopedic collection of rare and extraordinary cases, and of the most striking instances of abnormality in all branches of medicine and surgery, derived from an exhaustive research of medical literature from its origin to the present day, abstracted, classified, annotated, and Size: 3MB.   This tension between education and sensation is evident throughout Morbid Curiosities, particularly in the chapter ‘Viewing pathology’ in which Alberti examines the experience of the museum visitor. As much as the wealthy individual doctor who collected pathological specimens, the visitor – whether medical student or the general public.

    Its subtitle, The Struggles, Loves and Triumphs of Human Oddities, gives a more accurate picture of its content than does the title of this book, since much of the current work is about human credulity in general rather than medical curiosities specifically. The older book limits itself to actual cases, sympathetically described and medically. Morbid Curiosities is a history of the material culture of medical knowledge in the age of museums. Readership: Museologists, medical historians, anthropologists, art .
