Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Pink and white bonnet, full set [Burdock Blood Bitters]


On the cover is a young woman in a bonnet made of white feathers and pink trim and ribbon. There is a gilt horseshoe around her head with blue forget-me-nots floating around her hat on a lavender background. On the back a promo reads, "You may want it. A powerful restorative! Nature's True Renovator!" followed by six testimonials. At the bottom is a stamp reading, "For sale by J.H. Boher, Jones House Drug Store, Harrisburg."
