OPEN WIDE! – A Series of Eighteenth & Nineteenth Century Caricatures on Dentistry Published by Wychwood Books, Stow on the Wold, 2009. Illustrations By: John Collier, Thomas Rowlandson, George Cruikshank, William Davison, Edward Dighton, Matthew Darley & Louis Leopold Boilly. Eighteen caricatures which reflect life in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Brutal, painful and usually short but leavened with a large dose of that peculiarly Georgian style of humour, which was gloriously grotesque and bawdy. Today, dentistry prints are notoriously rare and expensive and are eagerly sought after. “A handsome volume of a painful subject”. Huon Mallalieu, Country Life, 2009
