Caption: Plague doctor. Engraving of a plague doctor in 17th century Venice, Italy. This costume was worn by a plague doctor, or any doctor dealing with quarantined patients. The costume's bronze mask contained herbs and reduced exposure to 'bad air', as did gloves, an oiled undergarment and cloak.
