From Rattlesnake Oil to Electric Belts, the vast gamut of 19th century cure-all concoctions and medical devices spawned an absolute treasure trove of at-times surreal advertising in American newspapers. This original and striking pharmacy icon will make the perfect addition to your home or office, a perfect gift for the doctor or pharmacist in your life! Comprised of a painstakingly researched collection of hundreds of actual ads ranging from the 1820s to the dawn of the 20th century, this brief history of quackery and exploitation of all manner of human insecurities of the Victorian era, especially, will no doubt be an instant conversation piece. Incidentally, the Rx on the mortar and pestle represents the Latin 'recipere' which means 'take this' or 'to take' - which is where we get the word, recipe. My prescription is this: buy something with this cool design on it. Enjoy. Thanks! Copyright 2018, R.C. Eubank
