Andrés de Laguna de Laguna | August 2016 Notes from the John Martin Rare Book Room @Hardin Library

Andrés Laguna

ANDRES DE LAGUNA (1499-1560). Anatomica methodus, seu De sectione humani corporis contemplatio. Paris: Apud Ludovicum Cyaneum, 1535. 

Andrés Laguna

Andrés Laguna

Laguna, a native of Segovia, Spain, began his education in medicine at Paris in 1532. While in Paris he published his first three books and became acquainted with Vesalius.

By 1539,  Laguna published over 30 books, many on medical botany–one of his great interests. This work is one of his earliest and was simultaneously published in Paris by Jacob Kerver.  Laguna notes in the dedication that he spent only three months preparing the work and comments that, in his view, the medical profession of his day had fallen to a very low state.

from Anatomica methodus, seu De sectione humani corporis contemplatio by Laguna

Written in a forthright manner, the book has a strong personal tone and cites few authorities but generally supports the views of Aristotle and Galen. Laguna begins his anatomy with the mouth because that is where the nutritive process is initiated and finishes with the brain where the spirits receive their complete transmutation. He cites few personal observations or autopsies and adds little to the progress of anatomy.

Migration is Beautiful Website Premieres at 2016 National LULAC Convention

Janet Weaver holding a Migration is Beautiful posterJuly 12th was the kickoff for the 2016 National LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) convention. Janet, assistant curator here at the IWA, attended the conference to promote “Migration is Beautiful,” a new website featuring vignettes, oral history interview clips, memoirs, letters, and  photographs from the IWA’s Mujeres Latinas Project.

The new website highlights the experiences and contributions Latinas and Latinos have made to the state of Iowa. It also hosts an interactive map that shows the migration of Latinos through Iowa during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Recently, Hola Iowa, a news outlet focusing on Latinos in the Midwest, featured a vignette and photos from the Migration is Beautiful website.

We are very proud of Janet, and can’t wait to hear more about the convention when she returns!

Pictures of Nursing: The Zwerdling Postcard Collection is now on exhibit at Hardin Library.  The exhibit explores a 2,588 postcard archive spanning over 100 years.  Images of nursing and the nursing profession around the world have been frequent subjects of postcards.

Postcards are influenced by popular ideas and social and culture life, as well as fashion. These images of nurses and nursing are informed by cultural values; ideas about women, men, and work; and attitudes toward class, race, and national differences. By documenting the relationship of nursing to significant forces in 20th-century life, such as war and disease, these postcards reveal how nursing was seen during those times.

500 additional postcards may be viewed online.nurses60s

This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
