1 Ayer's American Almanac for the Use of Farmers, Planters, Mechanics, Mariners and All Families 1862
Lowell, Massachusetts Dr. J.C. Ayer & Co. 1862 soft cover very good 
I've had a bunch of Ayer's almanacs over the years, but this is the oldest one I'vw ever had, or even seen. Other than a little light soiling to yellow cover it's in excellent condition. The good doctor had this to say about it: "Calculated for the four great Meridians of the Country, and consequently msy be relied on as accurate for every Place in the United States and British Provinces of North America. Also, giving Medical Counsel which may be relied on for the Treatment and Cure of the afflicting Diseases that prevail within the latitudes of the American States. Illustrated with a few small engravings.

Burdock Blood Bitters Trade Card (Man with Child in Head)
2 Burdock Blood Bitters Trade Card (Man with Child in Head)
Unknown Burdock Blood Bitters Unknown Very good 
This has to be the oddest trade card ever produced. I've had it for many years and, as you can see, it is part of the montage photo at the top of my website. I have finally decided to let it go even though I have still never figured out why the guy's head's ripped open to expose a rather creepy child inside. The turns of the "paper" look so real it's amazing. The card was issued to sell "the greatest of all blood purifiers." It's larger than average and measures 4-1/2"x6" and has numerous testimonials at back showing how effective it was for curing dyspepsia, biliousness, sick headache and constipation. The card was given to customers by H.T. Hess Druggist, Jackson Centre, Pennsylvania. Card shows a small bit of edge wear and toning to bottom corners on reverse side.

Clara Ford Nurses Home Detroit, Michigan (1926)
4 Clara Ford Nurses Home Detroit, Michigan (1926)
Unknown location C.T. American Art 1926 Very good 
Very bright clean postcard with just a tiny flat crease to upper left corner. Otherwise pristine. Card shows a white border, a divided back and a two cent stamp which matches the 1926 postmark because the postage rose from a penny to two cents from 1925 to 1928. The card was sent to Springfield, Ohio and the message reads thus, "Hope you and Marie had as good a time as Dot and I are having. Hazel." Card will arrive in new plastic sleeve.

Fortune Magazine, November, 1938 (Saks Fifth Avenue)
5 Fortune Magazine, November, 1938 (Saks Fifth Avenue)
New York city Time Inc. 1938 Volume XVIII, No. 5 soft cover Very good condition 
There's lots to read about in this over-sized magazine, but I think the most provactive is the story about Saks Fifth Avenue, which to this day keeps the population fashionable. Other topics of interest are: The Industrial South; Nunn-Bush and labor; the adventures of Del Monte; energy sources, including solar; and a look at the American Medical Association. Magazine is big at 11-1/2" x 14" with 174 pages. It's clean inside and out with just minor spots of edge wear to cover, but overall is really very nice. We have others listed online here, but also have a stack that are not on yet. So if you're looking for a specific example please let me know and I'll see what I have.

Ozone Renulife Violet Ray Health Generator Leaflet (1923)
8 Ozone Renulife Violet Ray Health Generator Leaflet (1923)
Detroit, Michigan RenuLife Electric Company 1923 Soft cover 
Amazing! I looked online hoping to see what one of the ozone machines looked like. As it turned out, there were so many your head would explode -- AND many of them still work. It's junk medicine of course, but at the turn of the 1900's electrical health machines were the "in thing." This little leaflet looks minor, but it explains how the gadget restored health, shows a photo of a machine and an accessory, both with pricing -- $75 for the machine. The leaflet measures 3-1/4" x 6-1/4" with eight pages. Here's what the gizmo supposedly did --built up the blood; gave relief to hay fever sufferers; helped disorders of the nose, throat, and lungs and more. There's also testimonials.

Rawleigh's Good Health Guide Almanac Cook Book 1921
11 Rawleigh's Good Health Guide Almanac Cook Book 1921
Memphis,Oakland, Minneapolis et al W.T. Rawleigh Co. 1921 soft cover Good 
The cover is so striking on this one, but that's not the only color image this almanac has. There is color at the back cover too, but the show stealers are the gorgeous color ads on reverse of both front and back covers. Both are by Rawleigh, but the one at the front features personal hygiene products and one at the back is all about medicines. The almanac measures 6-1/2"x9-1/2" and has 64 pages. Much nicer than the average almanac of the day too! Every page is illustrated -- there's plugs for Rawleigh products, a two page spread showing the company, the usual almanac stuff and, yes, at the back a cook book. It's clean and tightly bound, but I did re-enforce the spine with almost invisible, non-browning archival tape and it's holding beautifully.

Tailby-Nason Company Chemists Sphinx Medical Preparations (1910)
12 Tailby-Nason Company Chemists Sphinx Medical Preparations (1910)
Boston, Massachusetts Tailby-Nason Company 1910 Card cover Very good condition 
This is a small sized trade catalog, but a very handsome one. It measures 4-1/2" x 6" with 72 pages. There's a photograph at the front showing the exterior of Massachusetts Institute of Technology with whom the chemists from Tailby-Nason united in a "Technology Plan."For a small catalog there were many medicinal preparations. A digestive, Minto Payes, was shown in a photo also. They had just about everything covered, but were noted for medicines to ease constipation, inactive liver, bilious headache and jaundice. But looking through the I saw tablets, liniments, elixirs, syrups, fluid extracts, hypodermic tablets, ointments, powders, suppositories, and tinctures. Catalog is clean and tightly bound with just a bit of rust to old stables. Otherwise quite good.

The Firelands Pioneer New Series Volume III, (January, 1886)
14 The Firelands Pioneer New Series Volume III, (January, 1886)
Norwalk, Ohio Firelands Historical Society 1886 Volume III New Series soft cover Very good condition 
I had several Fireland magazines back in 2010, but haven't had any more until now. This is one of six that I just got -- it's very good for readers of Ohio history and genealogy. There are many addresses given to the annual meeting, the first of which is The Life of Our Pioneers by General Franklin Sawyer; Pioneer Life As It Was and As It Is by C.S. Stewart; Our Work In History by Rev. J. Nelson Lewis; The Pioneer Physician by Dr. John C. Sanders of Cleveland; and Some Compensations of the Pioneer Life by Rev. J.M. Seymour. Also included are early historical incidents. Then on to Pioneer History: Legendary Account of the First Camp Meeting in the Firelands;A Fitchville Centenarian, Collins A. Brown 100 Years Old August 19, 1885; Almost a Centrarian, Martin Kellogg of Bronson 99 years on Sept. 2, 1885 and the Army Record of Soldiers From Peru, Huron County.The biographies are the best part I think. Hre are the names mentioned: Ezra and Amy G. Smith, Mrs. Lucretia Waggoneer, Miner Hall and Isaac Underhill; Mrs. John R. Osborn; Hosea Townsend; Myron N. Morris;Ira Wood; Harriet A. Messenger; Hannah Russell and Mrs.Dr. A.D. Skellenger.

The Lakeside Hospital Dedication (Cleveland) 1931
15 The Lakeside Hospital Dedication (Cleveland) 1931
Cleveland, Ohio The Lakeside Hospitsl 1931 soft cover 
A most interesting ephemera item published upon the dedication of the hospital on June 17, 1931 at Cleveland's Severance Hall. The Lakeside Hospital was built to replace the old one on the shore of Lake Erie and became the central unit of University Hospitals Medical Center where it was joined by Hanna House, the nurses' dormitories, the power plant and the new Rainbow Hospital. The booklet is oversized at 9"x11-1/2" and shows a strong black and white architectural detail on cover. Most of the contents consist of full page black and white photographs which show an aerial view marking the various surrounding structures, the facade from several angles, the transfer of the first patient from the old hospital to the new, the entrance lobby, a corner view of the Public ward, the Public Ward solarium, a private room, the solarium of the private ward, the teaching amphitheater, an entrance hall to the dispensary, the living room in the nurses' dorms, the living room of the Doctor's Home, the library, and more. Lists Board of Directors and offers a 60 year overview of the hospitals's history. Hard to find. Tiny stain to top front cover and mild toning to cover only faults.

The McCleary Sanitarium News Spring 1938
16 The McCleary Sanitarium News Spring 1938
Excelsior Springs, Missouri NcCleary Sanitarium 1938 soft cover Very Good Condition 
I thought when I bought a couple of these magazines that the McCleary Sanitarium in Excelsior Springs, Missouri was for TB patients, but alas it was not. Dr. A.S. McCleary founded the sanitarium in 1901 for people with gastro-intestinal problems. His specialty though was curing hemorrhoids without surgery and his well advertised promise that if he failed to do so patients didn't have to pay. Surprisingly, the sanitarium stayed open until 1974. The magazine was sent to former patients and perspective ones and is actually rather interesting, especially if you have family members who worked or stayed there. There are many names in the past patient Honor Roll, as well as in the articles. One article is about Dale Carnegie's father's stay. Also includes pictures and stories about entertainments for the patients, plus recipes and info about daily life there. The magazine measures 9" x 12" and has 23 pages. I have a few more, so if you're looking for a different issue from 1938-39 let me know. Magazine is tightly bound and clean. Only faults are two tiny tears repaired by me with archival tape and a light skim of foxing to left side of front cover. Nice overall.

The Origin of the Cleveland Clinic; Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Cleveland Clinic (1946-47 2 booklets)
18 The Origin of the Cleveland Clinic; Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Cleveland Clinic (1946-47 2 booklets)
Ohio Ohio State Archaelogical & Historical Society; 15th Anniversary Committee 1946/47 soft cover Very good 
I bought these together from the same previous owner, so I think they should stay together since they're thematic. Actually, The Origin of the Cleveland Clinic is the first one off the press in 1946 with a text taken from a presentation delivered to the Medical History committee of the Ohio State Historical Society in 1947. The anniversary celebration was the following year, 1947. The origin booklet shows a tipped-in photograph of the four founders: Dr. Frank E Bunts, Dr. George Crile Sr., Dr. William E. Lower, and Dr. John Philips. The origin book has 19 pages and the anniversary one 26 counted pages. The latter is not a fluff booklet -- much information provided. Both booklets show outer toning, but are very clean and nice inside. Tightly bound and no other defects of note.

Three Arnheim's Liniment Trade Cards (Pittsburgh)
19 Three Arnheim's Liniment Trade Cards (Pittsburgh)
Pittsburgh, PA D. Arnheim early 1900's Very good 
Arnheim's liniment is best known for its slogan "For Man and Beast." It's an example of truth in advertising because Arnheim's peddled his product for both horses and people. The reverse side of the card shows a glowing testament of its efficacy for people, as well as a list of maladies it could help -- rheumatism, lumbago, bruises, sprained muscles and tendons, inflammatory sore throat or quinsy, diseases of the air passages, pains in the side, back or loins, cramps or pains in the bowels, neuralgia, headache and swelled face from toothache. Two cards have the exact same copy, but the third (little girl with the hat) offers a testimnonial too. They all measure 3"x4" and are quite nice, save toning to outer border of the one with the little boy on the fence and a small corner crease to the pink one.
