Blackburn's Casca Royal Pills
I hoped this would be my second acquisition, but I
failed to wake up to put in the killer bid - not
another one sale June 2001- poor condition and empty, but worth a try. It
went for a crazy $27 - I think that's more than the one in the photo,
complete and in good condition.
I've got one at last, and only $5. Empty, but excellent condition and I have
a free sample of those lovely pink pills from the Mentho Laxine below.

one I would really like, but I expect I will be outbid.

dear bidders! - If you follow my auctions ....you may remember that just
about a year ago ....I purchased a very large collection of Antique
Pharmacy items from the “Poor’s” Drug Store in Maine. Well.....
incredibly .... I found myself in the right place at the right
time.....and have managed to do it again!!!
amazing collection comes from “Lalime’s Drugstore ” located in
Waterville, Maine. For
many years .... Lalime’s supplied the local folks with Patent Medicine
.. Homeopathic herbs & Quack cure galore!
Once ‘cured’ ...customers could stop back in for an Ice Cream Soda or
a Lemon Phosphate.
The Drugstore is long gone... but the contents were sold off by a local
auction house ....and I was fortunate enough to attend .

managed to buy this one too. It looks as though Blackburn and Baker were
the driving force behind all these cures. This book is also hip-deep in
homespun philosophy of the sort which puts my teeth on edge.
Patricia Hilborn has kindly sent me from
Texas another edition of Health and Beauty which contains alternative
Blackburn ads. Click to enlarge (in the 10 years since I started this, the
space allocation has increased enormously, it's a shame the early
restrictions forced small images).
