Explores mountebank performativity and the overlap between quack and commedia dell'arte activity with reference to Thomas Platter's description of performances of 1598 in Avignon, by Zan Bragetta's commedia dell'arte quack troupe, and illustrations in early modern German alba amicorum, or friendship albums.
