dc.descriptionUndated copy of an engraving referenced in other sources as c. 1729. Identified elsewhere as John Thomas (d. 1757), “Le Grand Thomas” was a celebrated early 18th C. toothpuller who operated amid the festival gatherings on the Pont Neuf in Paris. Resplendent in dress and bearing, and of mythic proportions in size and bulk, the iconic Thomas perhaps was the most fanciful of all charlatans. The title of this image is from a description that appeared in Le Dentiste D’Autrefois : 60 Reproductions, annotées par Georges Dagen (Paris : Editions de la Revue “La Semaine Dentaire” [no date]). The description states: “This engraving is accompanied by the following legend : I’ll cure you, good people all, come nigh! The astounding truth none can deny, The virtue of my arm shall magic be, Earth has never seen the like of me.” Original piece measures 40 X 26 cm.en_US
