    Description

    Dr. White's Medicinal Cures Original Sign. Advertising the newest in turn of the century cures for liver disease, coughs, colds and croup. This three paneled paper sign in its original frame was lithographed by the Wm. Burford Litho Co. in Indianapolis and dates from the late 1880s. The individual panels of this sign have been seen offered previously, but never has it be found in such immaculate condition with all three panels framed together as original. The wording is meant to give the appearance of being painted on the glass, but is the poor man's version of that type of advertising, done as paper lithography. Each panel measures 9.5" x 23.25" and is 36.25" x 28" as framed.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
