Ah, those days before the FDA when things like safety and addiction were just fodder for the yellow press.  Sears even got into the act for a while, and in 1902 offered their version of nearly every available patent medicine in a dandy catalogue that continues to simultaneously mystify and enlighten.  Just what is a "French Injection?"  Here is the cover to that catalogue, suitable for framing, ressurected and redrawn by Jim Middleton from the original that had become home to a nest of mice.  Once you get the signed print, you'll need the complete catalogue reprint, of course...and gee, that item is also available from the Animating Apothecary!  What a deal!
