Cornelio, Vittorio / Faggioli, Raffaele
[Early dentistry; an ephemeral group].
Northern Italy, 1799-1843. **********************This group of Italian-language ephemera, pamphlets, and broadsides covers two of the characters within the early dentistry movement in Western Europe--namely: (a) Vittorio Cornelio (1752-1832), who began his journey as an itinerant fencing master, comedian, preacher, hermit, and tooth-puller, before apprenticing with a surgeon-anatomist and rebranding himself as "Incognito, Chirurgo Dentista." Eventually settling into a practice in Turin, he became one of the most recognized dentists in Europe, and granted the rank of nobility; as well as one of the first dentists committed to developing the science of dentistry through publication;and (b) Raffaele Faggioli (ca. 1800-1870)--known mostly through references in contemporary journals, as a well-traveled dentist who served for a time at the Court of Constantinople and held an itinerant practice in the Ionian islands. Thus the value of the pamphlets and broadsides present here, complete with lithographic frontispiece, to help flesh-out his character further. In one of the four broadsides here that sing his praises, a female patient stresses his saintliness in being able to relieve his patients' pain: "Medicina del Ciel, suona tuo nome, O Raffael..."***Listed in chronological order, the contents of this group consist of eight items, being:(1) [Annual subscription ticket for the dental services of Cavaliere Incognito, Chirurgo-Dentista].
