The Samuel S. White Catalog of Dental Instruments and Equipment by Samuel S. White

The Samuel S. White Catalog of Dental Instruments and Equipment Samuel S. White

This graphically illustrated catalogue is the best record of the entire range of 19th century dental instruments, appliances, and supplies offered for sale by the largest manufacturer of dental instruments in the world. For three quarters of a century, the S.S. White Dental Manufacturing Company of Philadelphia was the world’s largest manufacturer in the world of porcelain teeth, instruments, appliances, and supplies for dentists. The company’s founder, Samuel Stockton White, introduced several new and improved dental chairs, engines, and instruments for the dental office and laboratory. This facsimile reprint of the 1876 edition represents the full line of his products and includes an index to instruments. The original edition of this catalog was printed on highly acidic paper, and the few surviving copies tend to be in very poor condition.
