Three original photographs of maxillofacial or reconstructive surgery signed “D. Beauregard”, circa 1880
Three original photographs – albumen print – glued on a strong cardboard signed “D. Beauregard” and showing reconstructive surgery of the jaw or maxillofacial surgery thanks to the grafting of a dental prosthesis, itself illustrated separately from an original photo.
Daniel Beauregard was one of the founding members of the Cercle des dentistes de Paris in 1879 and a dental surgeon established in Paris at the end of the 19th century. He was active mainly during the 1880s and the beginning of the 1890s.
Among other things, he was responsible for the design and manufacture of “d’un appareil prothétique des plus ingénieux […] présent[ant] une disposition qui permet à la mastication de se faire d’une façon parfaite”(Journal de Médecine de Paris, Volume 7, July 1884-January 1885, page 283).
It could be the prosthesis shown here.
Fine condition of the photos which measure approximately 10×14 cm and 5.7×5.7 cm.
