U. S. Army Medical Department Logos & Titles

U. S. Army Hospital Department Titles

There were several different logos used by various publishers during the Civil War for the books ordered by the Surgeon-General's Office for the U. S. Army Medical Department and the U. S. Army Hospital Department. 

When the Medical Department became very active during the first year of the War, these logos and imprints were used on the books specifically ordered for use in the field and hospitals.  See the notice at the bottom of this page which Lippincott published in the front of Power's book on Surgical Anatomy of the Arteries.

Below are some of the examples found in this and other collections.  Any additions would be appreciated.
