Happy Miniature Monday to all!
Continuing a theme from a few weeks ago, here are some more miniature pamphlets from Hazeltine & Co., the publishing company created especially to promote Piso’s Cure for Consumption. These almanacs were published in the 1880′s and 90′s, and were sold as promotional items along with bottles of Piso’s dubious cure, which over the years contained many interesting ingredients such as hashish, morphine, opium and chloroform. Hazeltine was as prolific as it was fraudulent, and these almanacs represent only a fraction of the amount of materials we have from this publisher. Click here to see our earlier post on a different type of Hazeltine publication.
Almanacs. Hazeltine & Co., 1883-94. Approx 2″ x 1.25″. From the Charlotte M. Smith Collection of Miniature Books.
