What Your Neighbors Say. Dream Book. [Patent Medicine]
Yet another ambitious effort to remove money from the pockets of honest Americans. Much of this marketing matter is aimed at women who becomes ill from “feminine trouble” or suffer from the “diseases of women” —one considered by Dr. Pierce’s to be infertility, which he quite shamelessly declares he can cure. The usual desired results for ailments of all kinds are given and a host of other textual variety is found within, i.e., from guaranteed aids for cleaning your kidneys to recipes for cleaning your house.
The inside front cover shows a poor woman trapped inside of a tubular metal cage upon a bed, a “Condensation Couch for Auto-Induction Treatment” —only to be found at Dr. Pierce’s Invalids’ Hotel. Publisher’s coupon, emulating scrip laid in.
