Description: Various seminal events in the history of medicine are depicted on stamps.

The stamps are all shown here in the history of medicine section and by clicking the individual items that are noted in this text may be viewed with detailed descriptions: Curie; Laennec; Leeuwenhoek; Pharmacy; Urology and X-Ray.
