-------
Book in German on the diseases of the teeth by the Viennese dentist J. G. Pasch
-------
Pasch remarked on the potential of electricity and magnetism to alleviate toothaches.
--------
While he believed magnets had merit in curing aches, he nonetheless did not feel the results were satisfactory or practical
--------
He also rejected the practice of crushing the infraorbital nerve to dull tooth pain, as he believed, and correctly so, that such a procedure could have serious consequences

[Rare 16th century edition of the 4th century medical encyclopedia by the physician Oribasius; chapter on tooth anatomy, and the first description of a sling to stabilize fractured jaw]
-------
Collectaneorum artis medicae liber, quo totius corporis humani sectio explicatur, ex Galeni commentariis.
-------
by Oribasius
Paris, 1566
-------
Beautiful contemporary-style alum tawd goatskin leather, blindtooling to boards, and hand scripted title on spine in both Greek and Latin, with faux age wear, expertly done by @eidolonhouse
-------
First edition in the original Greek of books XXIV and XXV, on human anatomy by the physician Oribasius
-------
Book XXV includes a chapter on tooth anatomy, referencing the number in each jaw (16), root morphology, and neural and sensory connections.
--------
Oribasius (320 AD – 403 AD) was a Greek medical writer and the personal physician of the Roman emperor Julian the Apostate.
--------
He wrote a medical encyclopedia of about 70 volumes, of which only 25 still exist, compiling the works of ancient Greek physicians, including the great Galen
--------
Oribasius's encyclopedia is instrumental in preserving the medical works of the ancients which would have otherwise been forever lost
--------
His encyclopedia is the only source for the description of the Plinthios Brokhos, a sling for holding fractured jaws by the Greek physician Heraklas.

.
She has this look, of shyness, as if embarrassed to be seen. She hides her face behind her shoulder. Her eyes stare down and away from me. She knows that I know. She knows that I know she's staring at me from the corners of her large dark eyes. Her lashes flicker, like a butterfly struggling to fly away. Her lips break into a subtle mischievous smile, as if a young schoolgirl teasing a stranger. I know what she wants. I resist. I dare not show her how weak she makes me feel, how bad she makes me want to be. Yet, she knows what I crave; to sink her teeth into the most tender parts of me, to dig her nails into my lonesome heart, to swallow my soul.

[Japanese Ukiyo-e art depicting the custom of blackening the teeth of women signifying sexual maturity, and preventing tooth decay]
----------
"Blackening the Teeth"
In the style of Utamaro Kitagawa
----------
Ukiyo-e art
Taisho era (1912-1926)
----------
From the series "Ten Types in the Physiognomic Study of Women"
----------
Japanese Woodblock Print
10 x 14.5 inch
----------
A very rare Utamaro depiction of the practice of blackening the teeth, called Ohaguro
----------
It was usually done by married women, women older than eighteen years of age, prostitutes, and geishas, thus, signifying a woman's sexual maturity.
----------
Ohaguro was also utilized to compliment the white facial makeup, as the light faces extenuated the yellowness of teeth, thus, the blackening hid the unsightly discoloration
----------
Men began to practice it as some believed it was hygienic, preventing tooth decay much like modern dental sealants
----------
Ohaguro was customary until 1870 during the Meija period, when it was banned by a Japanese government intent on becoming "westernized"
----------
Kitagawa Utamaro (1750-1806) was a Japanese artist who was considered the prominent ukiyo-e artist of the late 18th century. He gained immense fame for his single portraits of idealized females in his beautiful women series
------------
Ukiyo-e [transl: Pictures of the floating World] was a Japanese form of woodblock art that flourished from 17th to 19th century, depicting beautiful women, sumo wrestlers, fauna and landscapes

"In our time, the book has retained a symbolic value that is almost spiritual. Discarding books is still considered sacrilegious. The burning of books is one of the strongest symbolic actions there is, correlating with cultural destruction. While mainly identified with the Nazi book pyres of 1939, the symbolic destruction of literature is as old as the book itself.
But even the Nazis realized that if there was something that gave more power than merely destroying the word, it was owning and controlling it. There was a power in books...They are weapons not only as propaganda, but also in the form of memories. Whoever owns the word has the power to not only interpret it, but also to write history."

"Love in a hut, with water and a crust,
Is - Love, forgive us! - cinders, ashes, dust;
Love in a palace is perhaps at last
More grievous torment than a hermit's fast." --
by John Keats
Poet-Physician
1820
----------
"Love is a treacherous oasis in the midst of a desolate existence; foolishly dive in and you will drown within its undulating depths, merely wade into its shallows and it will leave you shivering with discontent, fearfully resist its temptations and you will succumb to a slow and arid demise."

"His ability to combine art, science, technology, the humanities, and imagination remains an enduring recipe for creativity...being a bit of a misfit: illegitimate, gay, vegetarian, left-handed, easily distracted, and at times heretical. Leonardo's relentless curiosity and experimentation should remind us of the importance of instilling, in both ourselves and our children, not just received knowledge but a willingness to question it-to be imaginative and, like talented misfits and rebels in any era, to think different."

"Knowledge will be the true salvation, and the weight of the survival of the human race had always been on the shoulders of the learned few, who choose to surround themselves by the voiceless souls of the library, rather than the hapless bickering and politicking diminutives, slaves to instinctual emotions. Our survival had always been, and will continue to be, dependent on those that are unbound by the limitation of expectations, who will journey and discover, who will sacrifice their souls in the name of achievement, who will build the pearly gates for us all to walk through and leave the destruction behind; to survive."
