Full Calf Cover Boards The Cottage Physician c1897.

This 1899 medical book is entitled “The Cottage Physician, for Individual and Family Use, Prevention, Symptoms, and Treatment. Best Known Methods in all Diseases, Accidents and Emergencia of the Home…Allopathy + Homeopathy”. It is an outstanding compilation of scientific medicine at the end of the 1890’s period, with all the quirky remedies one would expect to find!

This hardbound book has reddish brown pebbled leather-covered boards with gold imprinting. It has 645 pages that are clean and bright, without foxing or writing. It was most likely a cabinet book that was seldom opened, as the text block is firm. The endpapers are uncracked, and there is a full color front view of the human body, as well as a multi fold-out maniken, and several more illustrations. Overall size is 8.5 x 6.5 x 2.5 inches. With the exceptions noted, the inside is near fine condition, and the cover boards are VG with minimal wear to the spine and corners.

In this age, laudanum and opium were used extensively. Homeopathic herbal remedies were also employed, with illustrations of herbs, some still in use today. It explores deeper the hidden and often tragic effects of syphilis, barrenness, sexual disfunction, and other common maladies of its day. Also included is a section on phrenology, that is, the personality profile of a person, based on the shape of one’s head! Accidents, wounds, varicose veins, birthing, poisoning, absinthe, arsenic, gunshot wounds, rabies, sore nipples, counseling for young men and women, and so much more are found inside. In short, it is so entertaining! And of course, toilet or cosmetic recipes to beautify the person. Many subjects contained herein were absolutely taboo to talk about, and volumes like this were truly the only source of information for miles around, especially so if one lived in outlying areas. It is an eye into Victorian life, and what was considered top-notch medicine of its time. It was certainly an essential book of its day.

TOILET REMEDIES.

SIMPLE, EFFICIENT, AND HEALTHFUL.

Dandruff (to remove, and to cleanse the scalp thoroughly). — Take as much boracic acid as you can dissolve in a half pint of soft water. Apply three times a day.

Hair Oil (very fine). — Castor oil, cologne and alcohol, each four ounces ; oil lemon grass, one-half dram ; oil bergamot, ten drops.

Shampoo (excellent to cleanse the hair and seal))). — Salts of tartar, powdered borax, aqua ammonia, each one-half ounce ; rain water, one pint.

Tooth Powder (excellent). — Powdered borax, one-half ounce; powdered chalk, three ounces; add a few drops oil of wintergreen. In using a tooth powder some prefer to touch the brush to toilet soap then dip into powder.

Chapped and Rough Hands. — Wash the hands in vinegar with a handful of oatmeal added, then apply a dressing made of glycerine and rose water, equal parts.

Hair Curling Liquid. — Salt of tartar (carbonate of potassa), one-quarter ounce; aqua ammonia and cologne, each one dram Shake daily for a week, then strain. Directions : Moisten the hair and adjust loosely; as it dries it shows its tendency to curl.

Complexion Powder (excellent and harmless). — Prepared chalk, one ounce ; cologne and alcohol, each two and one half ounces ; distilled water, one and one-half ounce ; glycerine, one-half ounce ; extract of heliotrope, one dram. Dissolve chalk in the alcohol, then mix all together. Directions : Shake well before using, apply with sponge or soft cloth, when dry remove chalk to suit complexion.

Gray Hair, to Darken (not injurious). — Glycerine and rose water, each one ounce. Work well into the roots of the hair at each morning's dressing.
