Comment : This book is quite a masterpiece, not only for the range of prints illustrated but also for the detailed commentaries on each. It is more than just a description of the prints. It puts them in the context of dentistry and social history of the time. The author reveals a depth of knowledge, not only in the history of dentistry but also of the production and history of printmaking. The latter is well beyond what I expected, and I learnt a lot from it. The only problem with the book is the quality of the binding with the back cover threatening to become detached from the end paper. I can thoroughly recommend the book and I’m sure that many members will enjoy reading it.
