The book includes some of the amazing X-ray images made by Henri Van Heurck, Joseph Jougla, and the Viennese scientist Josef Maria Eder, all active in the 1890s. Really a gripping artistic counterpart to the excavations of the human psyche going on in Vienna around the time that Freud and Jung were getting their start. Van Heurck's 1896 X-ray phot [...]

    Examining the early history of photography, this book elaborates on the correlation between that media and science, especially when used in conjunction with telescopes and microscopes.

I [...]
