[L.G. Grund Co. Botanic Medicine Group].
Philadelphia wholesale buyers of medicinal roots, barks, herbs, leaves, seeds, &c.
A 20-page pamphlet with a small group of ephemera issued by L.G. Grund Co. of Philadelphia, wholesale buyers of medicinal roots, barks, herbs, leaves, seeds, &c. Here the company solicits the public to offer them large quantities—“Shipments should not be less than 100 lbs.”—of various botanic remedies.
A small handbill lists 65 herbs etc. for which they were seeking, giving the common name for each herb as well some of its alternative or regional names. The small broadside (bearing two handwritten price changes and two rubber stamped additions) lists the prices L.G. Grund Co. will pay per pound. To assist their vendors in finding these herbs, the company also published a 20-page pamphlet with drawings of medicinal root and herb plants. Clever reverse marketing ephemera.
