Small oblong 12mo., pp.32. No date, though roughly early 1900s. Very Good in side-stitched chromolithograph wrappers, as issued. Front wrapper with two diagonal creases, short split at the lower spine end, faint soil to the rear wrapper, and a few leaves have tiny nicks at the edges. Dr. Franklin Miles founded the medical company in 1884, with a focus on the central nervous system and its connection to overall health. The company operated independently until 1979, when it became a subsidiary of Bayer AG, the two eventually consolidating in 1995. in 1911, Miles was involved in the landmark antitrust Supreme Court case of Dr. Miles Medical Company v. John D. Park and Sons, which affirmed that a massive minimum resale price maintenance scheme was in direct opposition of the Sherman Antitrust Act. Throughout the trial, Dr. Miles and his franchise continued business. During its early decades, Miles Medical Company issued pamphlets aimed at advertising its products and informing the reader (or patient, perhaps) on an array of topics. Other pamphlets issued included Magic, National Parks, Aviation, Circus Life, Buried Treasure, and the Panama Canal. This catalogue provides a brief history on cinema to date, with short biographies on some of the leading men and women of the day, notably Ruth Stonehouse (mentioned in conjunction with the 1914 film, "Her Trip to New York" US. Overall, an interesting addition to the realm of film ephemera. N° de ref. de la librería 121827
