Antique Medical Instruments and Equipment
The study and practice of medicine has changed dramatically over the course of human history. What may have once been a commonly acceptable form of medicine in the 1800's may now be considered completely rudimentary, regressive, or even barbaric by today's standards.
A collection of strange, unusual, and rare oddities
World War I Militaria
Commonly referred to as "The Great War," World War I was a global conflict that originated in Europe, lasting from 1914 to 1918. Over 16 million people died as a result of this war, a figure that was mainly the result of the technological and industrial sophistication at the time. This conflict is well known for the rise of "trench warfare," which led to grueling stalemates, attrition, and siege.
World War II Militaria
World War II was the most widespread war our planet has ever seen, directly involving more than 100 million people from over 30 countries, and lasting from 1939 to 1945. It resulted in an estimated death toll between 50 and 85 million people, making it the deadliest conflict in the history of mankind. It is a fascinating topic of historical study, and is one of my greatest historical interests.
