[QUACKERY] Madame Vigor's Magnetic Electric Corset. [London: Madame Vigor, c. 1880s].

8vo. A single leaf, folded; purple ink printed in pink paper-stock; pp. [4]; engraved illustration to front panel; small holes to fold, from a previous binding, with light discolouration to this area; a small portion missing of lower portion of fold, a good example of early Victorian medical ephemera.
This magnetic electric corset contraption promises to cure 'weak back' as well as a whole host of other medical conditions. Designed 'for those distressing disorders peculiar to the Female Sex designated as Ladies' ailments' (p. [3]).
