Stanley Burns, an ophthalmic surgeon practicing in New York City, has made significant contributions to the history of medicine and the history of photography. In Sleeping Beauty II: Grief, Bereavement and the Family in Memorial Photography: American and European Traditions, Dr Burns continues his exploration of postmortem photography.

Sleeping Beauty II is a supplement to Burns' earlier Sleeping Beauty: Memorial Photography in America.1Sleeping Beauty contained a treasure of historical medical information and was highly recommended for the medical profession. Sleeping Beauty II is a very important contribution to the history of photography but may be less relevant to the history of medicine; nevertheless, it has much that will interest the medical community.
