Michael Downs’s THE STRANGE AND TRUE TALE OF HORACE WELLS, SURGEON DENTIST provides a chill-inspiring close-up of a tooth key—a tool commonly employed in dentistry during the era in which his novel is set. We found the cover image on the website of Alex Peck Medical Antiques (reproduced by permission). This particular tool was made ca. 1850 by Hermann Hernstein, New York City.
