Davis & Geck Sutures in Ancient Surgery Photo Portfolio PrintsDavis & Geck
A partial set of 21 loose portfolio photographic prints by Davis and Geck. Circa first half 1900's. The cover is missing, most likely these were from Sutures in Ancient Surgery. These were staged with live costumed actors and shot in a studio. Interesting... if these are historically correct, then it seems medieval women would tend to loose all their clothing when sick (or maybe just did not have clothing at all?)... while the sick men had to stay dressed for battle? Perhaps, the medical industries highbrow version of a Snap-On tool girlie calendar for mechanics?... But seriously, a beautiful and expensive effort went into producing these images and histories.
I always thought these framed would be great decor in a doctors waiting room. It would give we patients something to ponder, when the appointment is rarely on time.

These all have some moisture stain lower left corner, but out of the image and text. Possible other age related signs, but generally bright images and quite good to frame.
