Artificial Leech (1800s)  Bloodletting with leeches was such a popular treatment for a range of medical conditions that an artificial leech was invented in 1840 and was used frequently in eye and ear surgery. The rotating blades would cut a wound in the patient's skin, while the cylinder would be used to produce a vacuum that sucked up the blood.

A c. 1870 antique Knight's binaural stethoscope said to have belonged to Sir William Osler, M.D.  The stethoscope descended through the family of Dr. W.W. Francis, a relative of Osler and the cataloger of the Osler library.  The stethoscope is rare, in-and-of-itself, as it has a Ware's bell with screw-in smaller bell.  Some loses to the larger bell are reconstituted in the pictures.
