[BARRY, Professor Alexander.] Barry's Pain Relief. A Purely Vegetable Preparation. USA: George C. Barclay. 1877.

8vo. Bifolium advertisement; pp. 4, with engraving of Crow camp to front; folded into thirds with tears along folds, fragile.
This is a very scarce advertisement for a wonderful piece of quackery, a herbal concoction apparently passed on to 'Professor' Barry by a hunter who, in turn, was given it by the medicine man O-gul-sa-wah of the Crow tribe in Nebraska in 1853. Of course, the recipe is secret, but the potion offers instant - yes, instant - relief from ailments as numerous and unrelated as burns, broken breasts, asthma, cholera, kidney disease and piles. A 'complete cure' of all these diseases is assured.
