內容簡介


以《病玫瑰》榮獲2014年英國圖書設計與製作獎的作者理查.巴奈特(Richard Barnett),與英國威爾康醫學史博物館(Wellcome Collection)合作,呈現自青銅時代以降的牙醫學演進史,您將看到許多怪誕又美麗的牙醫器材和牙醫學相關圖片。

「了不起…,人類生活中所有的痛、苦與快樂,都總結在迷人微笑的狂喜之中。」 - 英國Tatler雜誌

「如果Smile Stealers這本書不小心被遺落在牙醫候診室中,那一定非常有趣…。它既血淋淋又美麗,且刨根究柢。」 -《泰唔士報》

這本精彩又讓人感到痛苦的書,收錄的插圖,展示了有史以來許多迷人又陰森的牙科器具與技術。文明時代早期牙醫學殘酷且痛苦的努力,到當今因為對牙齒有更深的期待,而在水中加氟化物與實施整形手術,牙科史的演進意味著人們對這個學科的態度有了很大的轉變。

本書以編年史的方式編排,收錄的器具、牙科技術插圖與繪畫,皆來自威爾康醫學史博物館獨一無二的檔案室,這些器材與圖片蒐羅自歐洲、美洲與近東地區,加上醫學史學家理查.巴奈特7篇權威又口若懸河的主題文章,將告訴讀者牙醫這門學科與貿易的發展史,以及各種與牙醫學相關的事物,例如:18世紀肖像畫的微笑革命,以及牙醫學在鑑識科學上的角色。


An incisive and startling international review of the evolution of dentistry from the Bronze Age to the present day, presented in a gorgeous package


This achingly fascinating book follows the evolution of dentistry throughout the world from the Bronze Age to the present day, featuring captivating, grim illustrations of the tools and techniques of dentistry through the ages. It charts the changing social attitudes toward the purpose and practice of dentistry from the crude and painful endeavors of early civilizations to the fluoridated water, cosmetic surgery, and heightened expectations of today.

Organized chronologically, The Smile Stealers interleaves beautiful and gruesome 3D objects, technical illustrations, and paintings from the Wellcome Collection’s unique medical archive of material from Europe, America, and the Far East with seven authoritative and eloquent themed articles from medical historian Richard Barnett. Including previously unseen illustrations, this comprehensive review of the development of the trade and discipline of dentistry covers topics as diverse as the very first dentures, the smile revolution in eighteenth-century portraiture, and the role of dentistry in forensic science.

The Smile Stealers is guaranteed to appeal to those who see the beauty in medicine and biology as it probes the growth of dentistry.
350+ illustrations in color and black-and-white
