A little preparatory reading before school restarts in August as I shore up my defenses against the next flu season. It’s never too early!

The Faithful Executioner
Life and Death, Honor and Shame in the turbulent Sixteenth Century
-
Joel F. Harrington
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Historian Joel F. Harrington presents the story of a 16th century executioner through his rare and overlooked personal journal.
β€”β€”β€”β€”-
45 years and executing 394 people, and torturing, flogging and disfiguring many more.
β€”β€”β€”β€”-
β€œSo what was going through Meister Frantz’s mind? Astonishingly, although his journal has in fact long been well-known to historians of early modern Germany (c. 1500 to 1800), very few, if any, readers have attempted to answer this question.”
β€”β€”β€”β€”-
β€œThis remarkable document covers forty-five years, from Schmidt’s first execution at the age of nineteen, in 1573, to his retirement in 1618.”
β€”β€”β€”β€”-
β€œThe complex individual who emerges from this reading...is a far cry from the stereotypical emotionless brute of popular fiction.”
β€”β€”β€”β€”-
β€œInstead we encounter a pious, abstemious family man who is nonetheless excluded from the respectable society he serves, forced to spend most of his time with convicted criminals and the thuggish guards who assist him.”
β€”β€”β€”-
β€œThough effectively isolated, the longtime executioner paradoxically exhibits a high degree of social intelligence.”

Reading up on the history of anatomical illustration and body representation in medicine for this week, with a spinach feta pastry and a chocolate espresso cruffin at my favourite patisserie in Dallas

A couple of years ago Dr Freya Harrison and her team of collaborators were able to isolate a plant-derived compound that showed antibacterial properties found in ancient recipes. How? By searching through ancient manuscripts!
------
And thus, the field of AncientBiotics was thrust into the media limelight.
------
This study was the final push that I needed to motivate me to pursue an advanced degree in history of medicine; to combine my trade and passion for books
------
My future aim is to search through ancient and medieval manuscripts to find ingredients that could exhibit healing properties in oral and dental health; pain relief, dry mouth hydration, etc
------
Dr Stuart L. Fischman in 2000 published his review on oral hygiene products since ancient times, and this is a great place to see where to begin
------
Feeling excited!

[Rare German edition of the collected works of the 16th century French surgeon ParΓ©, in beautiful binding; dental instruments, surgery and prosthetics]
------
WundtArtzney
1601
------
By Ambroise Pare
------
A fine example of early German bookbinding; absolutely beautiful blindtooled contemporary pigskin leather over boards, with original metal hardware intact.
------
First German edition of the French edition of 1575, Les Oeuvres by Ambroise pare, a classic and rare publication of his collected surgical works.
------
Includes thousands of illustrations of anatomy, surgical instruments, surgical procedures, prosthetic limbs, and oddities and monsters.
------
Last two photos are of dental instruments and dental prosthetic teeth.
------
Ambroise ParΓ© (c. 1510 – 1590) was a French barber surgeon who served in that role for kings Henry II, Francis II, Charles IX and Henry III.
------
He is considered one of the fathers of surgery and modern forensic pathology and a pioneer in surgical techniques and battlefield medicine, especially in the treatment of wounds.
------
He was also an anatomist and invented several surgical instruments. He was also part of the Parisian Barber Surgeon guild.
------
Having been a barber prior to his exalted position of surgeon to kings, Pare must have acquired great experience with tooth pulling as that was the day to day work of a barber in the 16th century.
Pare had not only intimate knowledge of the anatomy of teeth, but more importantly the practical side of dental surgery.
------
ParΓ© introduced the lancing of infants' gums using a lancet during teething, in the belief that teeth were failing to emerge from the gums due to lack of a pathway, and that this failure was a cause of death. This belief and practice persisted for centuries.

A haunting photograph of a dentist and his assistants in Berlin, Germany, dated October 31, 1908. Yes, that’s right...Halloween!
------
The first female assistant, Malvina Cueria, was employed in 1885 by a dentist in New Orleans after he found his wife at his office to be most helpful.
------
Malvina’s duties, much like most dental assistants in the decades soon after, were all-encompassing, including not just chair-side assistance and cleaning instruments, but also, front desk reception duties and office upkeep.
------
The presence of a female assistant came to define a certain status and standard in the office, so much so that in the late 19th century many dentists posted signs outside announcing β€œLady in Attendance.”
------
The demand by dentists for quality assistance culminated in the organization and formation of The American Dental Assistants Association in 1924 by Juliette Southard, a pioneering dental assistant in that she instilled high standards in the practice and teaching of the field.

πŸ₯€What I miss the most are those little moments that we had never shared, those moments that never happened, those little moments that meant nothing to anyone but us, little moments lost amidst the vastness of existence, those moments that found us, alone, together, away from everyone and everything, doing nothing but being, together, those little moments that could have been, but never were, that should have been, but will never be.
.
Those are the moments that I miss the most.
.
Miss you.

Wishing you a happy Valentine’sπŸ₯€

One of the best reflections on the love of books I’ve personally ever read. Manguel weaves autobiographical narrative with historical accounts on the meaning and madness of libraries throughout history
------
The Library at Night
by Alberto Manguel
2006
------
Epica red blend
Roble 2014
Spain
------
β€œLibraries, whether my own or shared with a greater reading public, have always seemed to me pleasantly mad places, and for as long as I can remember I’ve been seduced by their labyrinthine logic, which suggests reason (if not art) rules over a cacophonous arrangement of books. I feel an adventurous pleasure in losing myself among the crowded stacks, superstitiously confident that any established hierarchy of letters or numbers will lead me one day to a promised destination. Books have long been instruments of the divinatory arts.”
------
β€œHowever appealing we may find the dream of a knowable universe made of paper and a meaningful cosmos made of words, a library, even one colossal in its proportions or ambitious and infinite in its scope, can never offer us a β€œreal” world, in the sense in which the daily world of suffering and happiness is real. It offers us instead a negotiable image of that real world which (in the words of the French critic Jean Roudaut) β€œkindly allows us to conceive it,” as well as the possibility of experience, knowledge and memory of something intuited through a tale or guessed at through a poetic or philosophical reflection.”
