As a free source of information regarding patent medicines this work is not shabby. For those interested in the rhetorical nature of the patent medicine business or those just looking for something different to read its worth the hour or so of your time.

Was not what I expected, rather dry.

A reprint from the Smithsonian with good informantion. But the print is very small and hard to read, and the illustrations mentioned are not included.
