    James A. Garfield: H. H. Warner's Safe Kidney Cure Advertising Lithograph Sign, Circa 1880. It was in 1879 that H. H. Warner, after suffering from Bright's Disease, bought the rights to Dr. Charles Craig's Kidney Cure. Warner, a man with a keen sense for marketing, was inspired to use the presidential election of 1880 to advertise his product. Pictured in this colorful early lithograph is James A. Garfield being congratulated by a group of constituents including his opponent, James G. Blaine. Each political figure is identified along the bottom edge and the Capitol building shows prominently in the background. Although the paper sign shows creasing and some folds and wrinkles, it has no tears and appears complete, reading "Copyright 1881 by Root and Tinker". Complete with complimentary mat 25.5" x 18.25". This lot requires 3rd party shipping.
