Handatlas der Hautkrankheiten fur Studirende und Arzte. 3 pts.

Vienna & Berlin: W. Braumüller, 18981900.

An extensive and valuable collection of illustrations in dermatology. Includes 377 chromolithographs.

"In publishing this hand atlas of skin diseases, I wish to provide students with an aid to their studies and general practitioners with a means of comparison and verification when diagnosing skin diseases... The hand atlas not only has to contain all common and unusual forms of diseases, it must also show all of the modifications they can assume according to their site, extensiveness, and phase of development or regression. Our dermatology clinic here at Vienna University has a collection of teaching aids, consisting of coloured original water-colour paintings commissioned by Ferdinand Hebra. These paintings now number almost 1000. Most of them are the masterly work of Elfinger and Karl Heitzmann..." (Quoted by Ehring, Skin Diseases: 5 Centuries of Scientific Illustration [1989] p. 180).
