First Blog Sale! 1913 Prescription Log Record Book Antique

Okay! You asked for it! Here is your first opportunity to shop at Red Shed, no matter where you live in the country.Our First Blog offering is this fabulous book file of prescriptions from the Caldwell Sweet Company Pharmacy from the year 1912 - 1913. The book is covered in ivory canvas, consistant with it's age. The logo is CSCo. (for Caldwell Sweet Company in Maine).

The book is approximately 15 inches wide, 20 inches tall, and 5 inches wide.

We haven't counted all the pages, but there seems to be between 300 - 400, maybe more.

There are vintage RX prescriptions on both sides of each page from many different doctors....

The cover is sewn on, and the original thread is still intact.

Many of the RX's have intricate graphics, not to mention the vintage writing. Some say things like "two tablespoons of Castor oil".

The entire book is $500.00 and $10.00 to ship anywhere in the US. Any of you (like us!) who have purchased single pages as ephemera, know that they can be up to $10.00 or more for each page! We don't have the heart to break this one up. If you have a good friend or loved one who is a Doctor, Pharmacist, or just loves medical memorabilia, please let them know.

To purchase just click "BUY NOW" below and we will get it on it's way.
