About This Item

Baltimore, Maryland: Kohler Manufacturing Co, 1890. Very good to fine.. Four (4) pocket-sized booklets in original illustrated wrappers, published together as a clever "collect-them-all"-type marketing scheme advertising Kohler Remedies. The booklets contained everything from jokes to dream symbols.

The titles include:

"Forget-Me-Not Rhymes". Baltimore: Kohler Manufacturing Co., c.1890. 32mo (5.25" by 3.25"), pp. [8], stapled in original illustrated wrappers. A booklet of brief excerpts of sentimental or humorous verse, such as: "May your life be happy, and have merry times, and marry the man that has the dimes" (p. [1]).

"Laws of Etiquette by a Society Lady". Baltimore: Kohler Manufacturing Co., c.1890. 32mo (5.25" by 3.25"), pp. [8], stapled in original illustrated wrappers. A booklet with 99 laws of etiquette including such gems as: "Good breeding covers a multitude of sins" (No. 32); "Ladies should not stop in the streets to speak to gentlemen" (No. 52); and "Do not blame a man when he does all he can" (No. 79).

"What Your Dream Meant". Baltimore: Kohler Manufacturing Co., c.1890. 32mo (5.25" by 3.25"), pp. [8], stapled in original illustrated wrappers. A booklet of dream symbols. For example: "Quilt" means that someone is plotting against you, and "Skeleton" means that "your darling has a fat bank account".

"Wit and Humor: Laugh and Grow Fat". Baltimore: Kohler Manufacturing Co., c.1890. 32mo (5.25" by 3.25"), pp. [8], stapled in original illustrated wrappers. A booklet of humorous jokes and one-liners: "Why should a duck not cross the road? It would be a fowl proceeding" (p. [6]). Advertises Kohler Antidote on lower wrapper.
