Título: The Tooth Ache, or, Torment & Torture.
Editorial: London By John Fairburn
Año de publicación: 1823
Broadside, small folio, hand coloured etching by Thomas Rowlandson, very light busage, printed one side as issued. Another exceedingly rare Thomas Rowlandson satire. The subject is that of a woman who is having a dentist probe in her mouth, watched by the Dentist's young assistant and the woman's mother (?) looking on in anguish. Rowlandson has quite superbly reproduced the expressions of anguish on the faces of the girl and mother in contrast to the contented expressions of the dentist and his assistant. Emphasising the satire of the day is the poster on the wall which reads "Barnaby Factotum. Draws Teeth. Bleeds & Shaves. Wigs made here, also Sausages. Wash Balls. black Puddings. Scotch Pills Powder for the Itch. Red Herrings. Breeches. Balls. and small Beer by the maker. In Utrumque Paratus". Not in British Museum. The only copy traced was that sold by an American dealer with very similar colouring. N° de ref. de la librería 16368
