Mughal Miniatures are a marriage of Indian and Persian painting. They are filled with life, action, and gorgeous colors, but despite the title these six beauties are not miniatures.

The only fault to the contents is a stripe of toning to bottom edge of the first page of the booklet.

It measures 5-1/2"x8-3/4" and has 46 pages including wonderful black and white photographs printed on coated paper. The smaller color booklet measures 5"x7" and 11 pages. No photos.

I have always been fascinated by the patent medicine peddlers (otherwise known as snake oil salesmen)who offered a magic pill for anything that ailed you. Their advertising is very collectible ,be it magazine ads or trade cards. But here we have something a little different -- a booklet of 29 pages of dense text broken up by black and white art, all of which tells the story of Charles Wills who went to India, discovered the Cake of Healing and used it to make pills so fine he called them "the best pills in the world."
