Book Description

Jersey City: Clark Johnson, 1873.. 309,[2]pp. Portrait frontis. Original orange cloth. Rubbed, contemporary ownership signature on front free endpaper and pastedown, scattered foxing, a bit loose. Good. "A revoltingly fictious story written to advertise Dr. Clark Johnson's Indian blood syrup, and made up mainly of descriptions of Indian life and customs, some of which are cribbed, with considerable garbling from Catlin" - Ayer. A direct advertisement for the miracle cure follows the text. An interesting example of "product placement" in 19th-century Western Americana. AYER 90. GRAFF 1199. RADER 1265. EBERSTADT 114:288.
