First Edition. Hopewell-Smith was a specialist in dental histology, having served as a lecturer and demonstrator at the Royal Dental Hospital of London before coming to the United States to take the position of professor of dental histology at the University of Pennsylvania. He was known for "the striking excellence of his practical work in preparing sections of dental tissues and in photomicrography" (British Medical Journal 1, no. 3665 : 606). Hopewell-Smith dedicated Dental Microscopy to the eminent British dentist Charles Sissmore Tomes, consulting dental surgeon at the Royal Dental Hospital and author of Manual of Dental Anatomy Human and Comparative (1882 and later eds.). We are offering the dedication copy of Hopewell-Smith's work, inscribed to Tomes and with a signed portrait photograph of the author.Book Id: 40504
