Booklet measures 6"x9" and has 44 pages. Covers the following towns: Atwater, Aurora, Brimfield, Charlestown, Deerfield, Edinburg, Mantua, Palmyra, Paris, Randolph, Ravenna, Rootstown, Shalersville, Streetsboro, Suffield and Windham.

Publisher: Detroit, Michigan, The Zenner-Raymond Disinfectant Company: 1898

Seller ID: 1284

Condition: Very good


The bright color of this ad and its matching envelope caught my attention immediately, but after reading it it occurred to me that I have never had anything produced by Zenner-Raymond until now. The ad is complete as you see it, printed only on the front, and fits inside the envelope which measures 3-1/2"x6". Love the bold exterior message: Zenoleum Sheep Dip Is Not Poisonous." The postmark reads Detroit April 28, 1898 -- the ad was created from an 1897 study conducted by the State Agricultural College at Fort Collins, Colorado. Nice addition to an agriculture collection View more info

I have seen the booklet before, but never with all its accoutrements. The booklet is wonderful --color art and text about the entrepreneurial skills of the Shakers.
