Perry Davis & Son

Regular price $40.00 Sale

Invented by Perry Davis in 1840 and patented in 1845, his Pain-Killer was probably the first nationally-advertised American remedy for pain. Widely regarded as the wonder drug of its day, it contained mainly opiates and ethyl alcohol. This advertising booklet advertises the drug on every page but also lists famous bulls, cows, and horses, perhaps to appeal to farmers.
