Healy & Bigelow's New Cook Book.

New Haven: Healy & Bigelow Publishers, 1890.

Booklet, stapled in wrappers (17 x11.5 cm.), 64 pages. Illustrated throughout. A promotional cookbook for the patent medicines of Healy & Bigelow's Kickapoo Indian Medicine Company, featuring over one hundred seventy simple recipes for beverages, biscuits, candy, cakes, fish, meat, pastry, poultry, puddings, soup, stews, and vegetables interspersed with information about Kickapoo Indian oil, salve, and other products. Also included are narratives on Indian culture, wildly racist but of the era. John H. Healy and Charles Bigelow began their company in the late 1870s, promoting their "traditional" Indian medicines with traveling medicine shows that capitalized on the public's nostalgia for the the Wild West. In orange wrappers with hole punch and ribbon to top left corner, some slight discoloration to wrapper, otherwise very good. [OCLC locates seven copies].
