LOC:300
$495.00Hance-Brothers-and-WhiteUnrecorded-anthropomorphic-map-human-circulatory-system-quack-cureUnrecorded persuasive advertisement for quack cure-alls using a map of the human circulatory system. It superimposes the image of a human with red veins and capillaries over a map of the United States. This cover image crosses several collecting categories- medicine, cartography, advertising, and quackery. <br></br> The ad, from 1897, comprises the cover of vol. 2 no. 3 of "The Frog", a pamphlet targeted at druggists and proprietors of soda fountains. The "Red Blood Frog" edition of "The Frog", printed entirely in red ink, was published in 1897 by Hance Brothers & White, pharmaceutical chemists, a manufacturer of other cure-all remedies including "Frog in your Throat" lozenges. Philadelphia. Dated within at 1897. <br></br> The cover and content of the Red Blood Frog issue was part of a advertising campaign by Hance Brothers & White to promote their line of "blood making goods". These product included sarsaparilla, beef wine and iron, <strong>coca wine</strong>, and elixir celery compound. Wholesale purchasers could even re-brand the product by purchasing custom printed product labels (all in red ink) bearing their own trade information. <br></br> By 1906 Congress moved to restrict quack cures like those promoted in this Red Blood Frog edition by passing the Pure Food and Drug Act, which prohibited transportation of impure or contaminated food and drugs in interstate commerce and required truthful product labeling.

$260.00George-W--Walker-Lithograph-and-Publishing-CoBoston-Harbor-and-the-North-ShoreOrginal antique birdseye view folding map of Boston Harbor by George Walker shows ferry routes, steamer routes and railroad lines between Boston and points both within Boston Harbor and to outlying towns. This fascinating old lithographed map differs from other birdseye-view maps we are aware of from this era because it includes Marblehead, Lynn, Salem and extends north-eastwards to Gloucester, Massachusetts. We can date the map with confidence because it clearly shows the Wonderland Amusement Park at Revere Beach which failed after five years, operating exclusively between 1906 and 1911. Wonderland, served by the Revere Beach and Lynn Railroad, was modeled along the lines of the World's Fairs of that era and included roller coasters, technological exhibits, theaters and a boardwalk. <br></br> Noted points of interest include Charlestown, Point of Pines, Magnolia, Baker's Island, Thompson's Island, "the Pumping Station", Dorchester Bay, Squantum, Norfolk Downs, Quincy Bay, Hough's Neck, Hingham Harbor, Winthrop, Beachmont, Great Head, Peddock's Island, Nantasket Beach, Port Allerton, the town of Hull with Fort Revere, George's Island with Fort Warren, Deer Island, Lovell's Island, Lynn, Swampscott, Thatcher's Island, Strawberry Hill, and many more. Captures several local lighthouses and aids to navigation including Boston Light, Long Island Light, Fawn Bar Beacon, Graves Light, and far out the bay - a whisting buoy. <br></br> Original lithograph by George W. Walker, lithographer of Boston in landscape format is in very good condition for a 105+ year old map. Was originally folded into a card cover but the front half has disappeared leaving the map attached to the back cover, as issued. <br></br>

In 1919 oil was discovered in the Kemp-Munger-Allen field. <br></br> Osceola Oil Company was organized in 1919 with corporate officers Russell A. Richardson, President and C.C. Drake, Secretary. With authorized capital of $500,000 and a single leased property of 200 acres "...one mile east of the Waggoner Ranch in Wichita County Texas" the company began seeking investors. By 1922 it was all over but for the crying… Osceola filed a lawsuit against the driller, Stewart Drilling Company, who failed to discover oil with a 2000 foot deep well on the property.

Tablecloth-sized map of the United States on Indian Head cloth [1] based on a design copyrighted by J.H. Withers in 1947 and branded with the imprint of Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. <br></br> Wither's distinctive design elements include a revised shape for Texas which extends to the west coast to provide Texas with a space for a "future seaport" and the appellation "damm' Yankee territory" for most of the northeast U.S.A. <br></br> The Catalog of Copyright Entries for 1947 records a copyright for "A Texan's Map of U.S.A.", held by James Harlan Withers of San Angelo, Texas. Wither's 1947 pictorial map is the earliest documented example of a genre of pictorial map with many derivative versions that begin with the fact that Texas was, at the time, the largest state in the U.S. and extend that simple premise to exaggerate the importance and quality of the state of Texas over the every other state in the U.S.A. <br></br> Early 50's date is supported by the fact that neither Alaska nor Hawaii, which both attained statehood in 1959, are mentioned on the map. <br></br> [1] Indian Head cloth was not manufactured after 1962.

With the introduction of the TCP-IP protocols, ARPANET grew rapidly in size and within less than 20 years evolved into the Internet. <br /><br /> ARPA stands for Advanced Research Projects Agency, a U.S. Defense Department agency responsible for leading-edge technical research. Beginning in 1967, by 1969 the ARPANET network interconnected four supercomputers, in 1970 - 9 supercomputers and by 1972 - 24 supercomputers . <br /><br /> The ad shows the location of ARPANET supercomputers, generally large universities and research institutions; the interconnections between those supercomputers; and the data exchanged between the computers. <br /><br /> In the early 1970's networking concepts were poorly understood and the artist uses common pictograms as metaphors as an aid to understanding. Without exception each university/research Supercomputing center is represented by old white men in suits, most with ties (NASA Ames the exception). Names of each institution appears on the outstretched arms of the old white men as they extend into the cube of another institution with an old white man.
