1897 (3 Lot) ANTIKAMNIA CALENDAR Quack Med Skeleton Ad Trade CODEINE QUININE

















Description

Offered for auction:

Three original single chromolithograph calendar pages, featuring March/April, November and December, and September/October 1897 from The Antikamnia Chemical Co., St. Louis, Mo.

Each 7 x 10 inch page features one of the death-like skeleton figures that have made Antikamnia calendars and loose pages sought after and prized by collectors.

Each One Page: (Three pages, but an incomplete calendar for the year)

March/April 1897- 'Tis The Genuine. November/December 1897- A Withered Blossom. September/October 1897- An Opening Bud.

Condition: Please view our photographs, they are part of, and the best description. This card may have wear consistent with age and use to edges and surfaces, which may include discoloration/tanning, soiling, closed or open tears/holes or other wear.

Extra flaws of note for these cards are several...they are in rougher, poorer condition. You can expect to find discoloration, stains/soiling, pin-holes, and open tears.

These were previously in a Victorian-era scrapbook, and so have glue remnants to backs. 

They are being sold as shown and as is, with the sale final.

Shipping: These cards will ship in a clear sleeve between USPS grade cardboard. We pack and ship with great care. 

We gladly combine shipping charges, when applicable. If so, please allow us to invoice you prior to payment via PayPal. 

**NOTE: Due to business-related travel, I will be unavailable to answer questions from February 6th-9th. Any inquiries will be replied to immediately upon my return. My apologies for any inconvenience. **

About Antikamnia: Antikamnia was marketed to medical professionals between 1897 and 1901 as "a proudly ethical drug" but was instead quite toxic! The poisonous effects were exposed in 1907 and the company prosecuted by the government in 1914.

About the Artist: The Antikamnia Chemical Company hired local physician and artist Louis Crucius to do do the art for the calendars. With an unmistakable and UNIQUE talent, he worked as a pharmacist while doing so. He died in 1898 during exploratory kidney surgery.

We are now offering our final loose Antikamnia pages (incomplete calendars, so offered by page or this one as a small lot), with a low start bid and no reserve. Thank you for your interest!
