Burdock Blood Bitters - Part II - 1889 Almanac

In Part II of my 3-part series on Burdock Blood Bitters, I'm pleased to offer scans of pages from an 1889 BBB almanac (my collection).

The pages below include the front and rear covers, testimonials for just a few of its purported benefits, and advertisements for other products from the same manufacturer.

Dan Cowman, MD - friend, mentor, and expert collector - tells me that BBB almanac were printed from 1884-1934 (50 years)...he has the complete run!

Tomorrow I will feature photos of a labeled BBB bottle and more information on this interesting medicine.
