1909 Herrick’s Almanac National Calendar Quack Medicine


I am pleased to offer an antique 1909 Herrick’s Almanac National Calendar.  Features 31 numbered pages containing “eclipses, lunations, conjunctions, and aspects with tables of the rising and setting of the sun and the moon and a notice of the sun’s four cardinal ingresses”, with pages for each month with numbered days and weather predictions.  Also contains numerous advertising sections for such cures as Swaims Panacea for Blood Poison, Sugar-Coated Vegetable Pills for Inflammation, Capsicum Plaster for Inflammation, Belladonna Plaster for Pain, Renne’s Magic Oil for Strength, Energy, and Vitality, Red Pepper Plasters for Apoplexy, and many more.  Back pages contain recipes for deserts.  Also has a section titled “Toilet Hints”.  This is a very interesting read, to say the least.

Published by Dr. Herrick’s Family Medicine Co., James Ballard Proprietor, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.  Has original string in corner for hanging.  Measures 8″ X 5 1/2″.

Item in excellent condition considering age.  Paper shows some aging with some light stains and a few small tears.  Otherwise nice and displays well.  Would make a great addition to any collection.
