DROSERA, OR INDIAN SOVEREIGN REMEDY FOR PALPITATION OF THE HEART. ALSO RECOMMENDED FOR THE FOLLOWING COMPLAINTS... BOWKER & MERRILL, PROPRIETORS, WEST CHARLESTON, VT.

Stanstead, C.E. Journal Print, [1845]. Attractive broadside, 7 3/4" x 11". Light edge spotting, verso with two tape remnants for mounting. Very Good.

Bowker evidently went a few miles across the border to Canada to get his broadside printed. His "discovery of the Medical properties and uses" of the plant remedy is a medical breakthrough: "it subdues undue nervous and vascular excitement, the cause of so much pain and misery. By its Tonic properties it relieves debility, giving strength to muscular energy."
A very pleasing example of patent medicine advertising. OCLC locates copies only at the University of Rochester Medical Center and the Library Company of Philadelphia.
