Spotlight Exhibition

During the month of February in Special Collections we focus on anatomical illustration in Art of the Unseen: Anatomical Illustration in the Special Collections. From weighty ornate tomes to the textbooks utilised by the very first anatomy students on campus under the tutelage of professors Croker King, Cleland and Pye, this exhibition will look at anatomical representation from the 1600s through to the modern era.
The muscles of the human body / Quain Jones, ed. (London : Printed for Taylor and Walton, 1836)

If you would like to view the spotlight exhibition, please contact the staff of the Special Collections Reading Room in the Hardiman Research Building at specialcollections@nuigalway.ie.
The spotlight exhibition can also be viewed in its entirety on the digital display wall in the Hardiman Foyer during the month of February.
