I bring you an old post about another medical collection. Yep, right from the horse’s mouth. Now that was a bad joke if I’ve ever seen one. What we have here is 29 horses’ teeth, assembled by Louis Auzoux (1797-1880), a French doctor, who went on to make papier-mâché models of humans, animals, and plants. In this particular example, one can see how horses’ teeth age, either from the effects of wind-sucking and crib-biting, or from the fraudulent methods used by owners to make horses seem older or younger than their true age. Many of Dr. Auzoux’s models are held by the University of Cambridge’s Whipple Museum, which also includes a large collection of early scientific books and instruments dating from the Middle Ages. There are telescopes, sundials, laboratory apparatuses…you name it, and they probably got it. But I do know one thing – I wish my grandmother was still alive, so she could keep her dentures in that nifty display case.
