An unusual New York imprint. Deschamps, a French chemist, presents his remedy for a variety of medical conditions, and for prolonging life. His discovery is "the most important that has ever been made... enabling every patient to be his own physician and druggist." He discloses the recipe for his miracle syrup, general directions and prescriptions for its use, and the history of his attempts to publicize his discovery despite opposition from the medical establishment. A few pages are devoted to 'Discovery of the Virtues of the Dragon's-Blood. (A plant of the Dock family).' The last page explains 'Dangers Attending the Use of Percussion Fire-Arms.' OCLC locates ten copies under several accession numbers.
