Surveying anatomical specimens in the collection of the Vrolik Museum, which developed from a famous private collection assembled over the course of a half century by Gerard Vrolik (1775-1859) and his son Willem (1801-1863) -- a collection remarkable for having remained intact despite changing attitudes in the medical and scientific communities about such cabinets of curiosity -- this catalogue explores the history of the collection and its role in medical research of the 19th century.
