Note
  • Two revolving charts, each mounted between two sheets, on which appear text and illustrations
  • Note: Volvelles, or graphic wheels, are devices consisting of a series of movable discs that collate a large amount of information into a compact delivery device. The contents of Bodyscope{u2014}shown here in its fourth edition{u2014}are presented on four, pierced card sleeves, with a turning disc inside. Each of the four "pages" has three pierced sections containing five subjects on the rotating disc beneath. Each page focuses on a different physiological area and includes both descriptive and explanatory passages for each organ system Above each illustrated human figure is an epigram written by Ralph Segal, relating not to science, but to culture and society. For example, the epigram above the female figure reads: Woman, her creative body as wisely patterned by God, is the Abode wherein the Seed is endowed with Life and imbued with a Soul...her maternal nurturing and inspirational influences are reflected in Mankind{u2019}s aspirations; the fruits of which become her Reward. Volvelles like Bodyscope were popular from the 1930s to the 1960s. -- MU Ellis Library Exhibit note (2010)
