Here is a sampling: capital surgical instrument sets, saw, trephine, scalpel, tourniquet, bloodletting fleam, scarificator, cupping sets, artificial leech, anesthesia devices from dropper bottles and simple masks to early machines, hearing devices of all types like ear horns, trumpets, tubes, autoscopes, diagnostic instruments like stethoscopes, blood pressure devices, thermotaxis, eye related surgical instrument and diagnostic trial frames, eye cups and magnets, quack electric devices such as faradic batteries and violet ray devices and the various electrodes and other accessories available, invalid items like cups and straws, medicine dose cups, wheel chairs, pharmacy items such as bottles and jars, mortar and pestle, pill boards and machines, paper folders, every type of gynecological, uterine and vaginal instrument such as forceps and destructive devices like perforator's and hooks, orthopedic devices of every type and the list goes on. If it is medical related you'll find it in these catalogs totaling over 4,550 pages packed with exceptional period engravings and item specific text. Printing is disabled on the disks but we also sell printed versions of these catalogs if preferred.


Why are books on CD by Destiny Publications such a smart buy?

They are exact replicas of the originals with all illustrations, in high resolution. They're presented in one of the world's most widely recognized file formats, Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is installed on most computers. Reader is compatible with all operating systems and if you don't happen to have it on your computer, it is provided free on every CD.
Our exclusive series of virtual books make available to all many titles which are too rare, and too delicate, to purchase for reference purposes. Our archival CDs, when properly stored, have an estimated life of 100 years. With periodic back ups, they can last forever.
Another big plus is the capability of increasing text size to suit individual viewing comfort. The high resolution illustrations can also be magnified incrementally to reveal even the most minute details which can be very important to the collector.
A few CDs pack much easier for travel than a stack of books and the .pdf files can even be loaded onto hand-held viewing devices. The active subject/chapter links in the table of contents give quick access to specific information and most of our titles have string search capabilities which can quickly locate words or phrases anywhere in the document.
The perfect and only reference resource for the collector/researcher of this subject!
