Jonas Arnold Delineavit - Amputation Instruments, from Johannes Scultetus’s Armamentarium chirurgicum bipartitum, 1666
These were only “muder wepons” (sic) if they were infected or the surgeon had bad technique. (And yes, an amputation will be always a matter of horror, despite how aseptic and professional it is performed)
First time I saw this image, it got my attention that some of the instruments resemble quite much some of the ones that are used on modern orthopaedic surgery, less fancy, same basics.
I’m so buying one of these posters (the helferin one has my attention). I want to frame one of these and hang it on my bedroom. (I was thinking more about living room, but maybe some people may get offended and/or think I’m racist)
