[DREAM BOOK] [QUACKERY] [MARKETING] Your Fortune In a Tea Cup

c. 1918. Staplebound. 32 pages. 14 x 10 cm. A remnant of Dr. Pierce's vast, but fraudulent empire, based in Buffalo, NY. This pamphlet opens with two methods of interpreting tea leaves to capture the audiences attention, and then weaves in ads for his mail-order "medicines", primarily focused on "female illnesses". Also advertised is the Invalids Hotel and Surgical Institute, where his medical "empire" incorporated his apparent curative skills. Pierce's ability to market and sell his remedies, as well as use of testimonials, was legendary. Light toning to paper, otherwise crisp and clean copy. Illustrated wraps. Very good. Item #1991

Price: $35.00
