Biographical / Historical:
Before the Pure Food and Drug Administration was instituted in 1908 there were no restrictions on the claims or contents of medications available to the public without a physician prescription. This is reflected in the advertisements and testimonials as seen in this material. Many of the companies manufactured and distributed other products such as cosmetics, hair preparations and dyes; therefore researchers interested in chemical substances other than medical treatments would also be interested in this subject. The material dates from ca. 1800-1956 but, the bulk is late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Many diseases in the 19th century were known by names not currently used at this time. Throughout much of the material consumption which is known as tuberculosis was of great concern. Other diseases include kidney ailments (renal disease) referred to as Bright's disease, catarrh referred to the common cold, bronchitis, or sinusitis, gleet discharge from any body area used for example in gonorrhea and syphilis and scrophula glandular diseases many times accompanied by eruptions. Diseases that were considered curable by many of the medications described in this collection were catarrh, Bright's disease, anemia, syphilis, female diseases, gonorrhea, nervousness, tiredness and listlessness, headaches, weight loss, backaches, alcoholism, masturbation, typhoid, malaria, children's diseases and narcotic addiction.

Recto: Chinese figure with long queue is shown dancing while holding an iron. Text at right: "Melican man muchee smart Dennis / Kinrey no goodee / Mrs. Potts' muchee / goodee China / man can iron / two shirtee all / same one shirtee / make two dollar all / same one dollar." Verso: text with illustration advertising Mrs. Potts' Cold Handle Sad Iron, with list of advantages. In lower right: "For sale by / Hoitt, Rugg & Co., / No. 53 Oliver Street, Boston." In this cartoon illustration, the product is shown as advantageous to the Chinese laundry, whereas other new products of the same period, such as celluloid collars, were advertised as ways of putting Chinese laundries out of business. Nevertheless, this illustration uses a stereotypical image.

Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Accounting and Bookkeeping forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents note:
In 1953, Warshaw launched a year-long collecting campaign, soliciting material on whiskey and wine. He expanded this effort to also include items related to the drinking habit of notable persons. This category was originally labeled "whiskey" but has been retitled as the content covers a wide variety of distilled beverages, spirits, liquors, liqueurs, and hard alcohol.

The bulk of the content is print material in the form of advertising, circulars, price lists, marketing and promotional items with also a sampling of business records consisting of transactional documents such as receipts, invoices, correspondence, and import/export paperwork. Some bottle labels and a couple of packaging examples are present, as are drink recipe booklets and entertainment/pairing guides. Only a small portion of this series covers regulatory aspects such as licensing and taxation, including a Prohibitionists' Text-Book from 1880. The rich volume of advertising provides much in the way of visuals regarding the culture of drinking and entertainment through several 19th and 20th Century eras.

The Warshaw Survey Campaign Records series provides insight to his collection building strategy. Samples of his outbound solicitations exist and to a greater extent, the inbound replies help demonstrate his process and some of the relationships he had with institutions, businesses, and individuals. Of particular note are some of the anecdotal responses, plus several essays and memoir pieces related to the effects of alcohol consumption; not always positive, not always negative.

See also Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Series 2: Other Collection Divisions, Liquor & Wine Labels and Advertisements, 1893-1905, which contains two additional boxes of scrapbooks filled with printed advertisements, dealers' receipts, labels and drink recipe books.
Arrangement note:
Whiskey, Liquor, and Spirits is arranged in five subseries.

Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Weather forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This subject category- Weather consists primarily of receipts, invoices, postcards with images of weather conditions, weather reports, articles, and advertisements relating to tobacco, clothing and other various stores.

Series 1, Manufacturers and Distributors of Weather Instruments: circa 1866-1926; undated, includes bills, receipts, printed advertisements, catalogs and invoices from manufacturers and distributors of weather vanes, weather stripping, thermometers, weather forecasters, barometers and various other instruments. Such businesses were located in the Northeastern United States, primarily New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, with several from other areas in the United States and a few from England, France, Germany, and Canada. These materials indicate that the businesses were often family owned and operated. The materials also reflect the changing ownerships/partnerships in many of the businesses. Materials in this series are arranged in alphabetical order by business name. The foreign company is Askania, which was located in Berlin, Germany. Its printed catalog dating to 1887 contains various meteorological instruments.

Series 2, Weather Reporting Agencies and Organizations, circa 1873-1959; undated, includes pamphlets, reports, correspondences, protection guidelines, explanations of storm warnings, weather maps, crop bulletins and weather reports from weather agencies and organizations. The majority of them are United States federal agencies located in New York City and Washington DC. Others are privately owned and located in London, France, Japan and other areas of the United States, such as Ohio and Massachusetts. One foreign agency is the Imperial Meteorological Observatory in Tokyo, Japan, which compiled several weather maps into one work in 1884. The other is a French agency called Meteorographe Universel that created a small work in 1874.The materials indicate that governments played a central role in providing information about the various aspects of reporting weather and promoting warning systems. The materials are arranged in alphabetical order according to the agencies and organizations.

Series 3, Publications, 1797-1966; undated, contains almanacs, short publications describing various weather phenomenon, magazine articles, whole magazines and reports regarding different aspects of weather such as the temperature, storms, tornadoes and hurricanes. Some go into detail about how forecasting is done and about meteorologists in general. The miscellaneous folder contains an advertisement from Weather Trends, Incorporated located in New York, New York soliciting a subscription from the Warshaw Collection of Business. The materials are arranged in alphabetical order by subject.

Series 4, Related Materials, 1783-1954; undated, contains advertising cards, postcards, photographs, pictures from magazines and newspapers, short publications, pamphlets and weather reports. The photographs of the flood that occurred in March 1913 devastated parts of Ohio, Iowa, Indiana and Illinois in the Upper Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys. There was state wide flooding in Ohio with Dayton being the hardest hit area. The United States Storm and Weather Signals show the flags and their meanings on one side and on the other side advertisements from various types of companies, such as tobacco, pharmacies, clothing, electrical supplies and restaurants. Unk and I is a short caricatured pamphlet from 1954 regarding forecasting and various aspects of the weather in New York. The materials in this series are arranged in alphabetical order by subject of title.
