Cure what ails you with this early 1900s promotional pamphlet for "Miles Remedies". This advertising booklet is titled "Lifesavers" on the front cover and contains thirty four pages of promotional copy for a variety of pain medications, interspersed with tales of "Heroes of the Sea". A rousing naval scene decorates the front cover of this antique publication, which rates a solid (EX) grade designation. Of great interest to sports collectors is the back cover endorsement with a photo of Lou Criger, who spent more than a decade teamed with Cy Young, as the legendary hurler's favorite catcher. Criger is depicted in his "Boston Americans" jersey, easily dating this vintage piece to his 1901-1908 tenure with the Boston American League club during its first years of existence. Page 34 of this pamphlet features a testimonial by Criger in regards to "Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills" and the opposite page lists a variety of Miles pain remedies. An exciting find for advanced collectors, this historic advertising piece merits strong consideration.
