Caption: Nose doctor. Satirical artwork showing a man in a doctor's robes with a nose of exaggerated length. The accompanying verse (not shown) explains that the large hat indicates intelligence, and the robes indicate the man's medical profession, while the long nose indicates an ability to diagnose disease by smelling a patient's urine. This artwork, by the German engraver Jeremias Woff (1663-1724), was published in Augsburg circa 1700. This copy is from the German book 'Die Karikatur und Satire in der Medizin' (Caricature and Satire in Medicine, 1921) by the German art historian and physician Eugen Hollander (1867-1932).
