Notebook of Medical Remedies (Receipts Book)
1847-1864. Full Calf. Very Good. Oblong, 13 by 21.5 cm. Handwritten medical recipes and concoctions, both human and some equine. A total of 59 pages of text, starting at both ends of the book, with many blanks in between -- over 100 blank pages. Ten pages starting at the front are just notations for the receipt of funds; these are helpful in terms of dating and location. The other end is entirely recipes, and thus of far greater interest in terms of content. Recipes are for such things as purgative horse balls, Golan tincture, Breed's Bitter Tincture, a cure for Rheumatism, a treatment for Rheumatism of horses, balms for scratches, medicines for fever, cholera, Scarlet Fever, ague, and Pink Eye; a stomach bitter, a treatment for dysentery, a tooth powder, cough mixtures and syrups, and on and on. With pills, powders, syrups, creams, oils, teas, etc. Unusual concoctions include McNair's Blister and other blisters. All written in a neat, near calligraphic hand. Heavy wear to the cover. Some scattered soiling. Marbled endpapers.
