Instrumentarium Chirurgicum Viennense

The Instrumentarium Chirurgicum Viennense by Giovanni Alessandro Brambilla is part the historical collections of the Josephinum in Vienna. "The 'Instrumentarium Chirurgicum Viennense' developed by Giovanni Brambilla in conjunction with the instrument manufacturer Joseph Malliard from 1770's onwards, is of particular significance. This comprises just under fifty leather cases containing instruments sorted according to treatment. Together with the detailed descriptions included, they were intended to be used for surgical training as well as serve as patterns for future manifacture. Brambilla's 'Instrumentarium' was considered to be the standard for military doctors"1.
