Table of Contents

From the earliest days of the Americans colonies the apothecary has been a central place in community life. It was there that people went for the herbs and medicines that could heal their illnesses and soothe their aches and pains. In some ways it still is.

In the first comprehensive, full-color treatment of the subject, this new book looks at the antiques and collectibles that have grown out of the apothecaries, pharmacies, and drug stores of America. From apothecary jars to patent medicines, mortar and pestle to leech jar, the tools and products of the stores are illustrated in full color. In addition, the soda fountain, an important part of any drugstore, is covered with its dispensers, dishes, and furniture.

For anyone who has ever had an ice cream soda at one of these counters, the images in this book should bring back fond memories. Thousands of items are illustrated in Drugstore and Soda Fountain Antiques in full color, with informative captions and text. A price guide is included.
