The adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” epitomizes this magnificent excursion into the world of medical illustration. Ophthalmologist Stanley Burns has been a scholar of medical photography for more than three decades. What began as a hobby developed into the foremost collection of medical photography, the Burns Archive. The four volumes of this latest published collection from the archive present outstanding items that depict skin diseases as seen in publications of a century or more ago.
