    Unrecorded Chicago Imprint


    (CHICAGO IMPRINT). [ANON.]. The Complete Cattle Doctor: a Treatise on the Diseases of Horned Cattle and Calves. Chicago: W.B. Sloan, 1848. 1st ed. 12mo. 34 [of 36?] pp. Sewn, lacks wraps. Title frayed & stained; text foxed. Lacks wrappers. $675.00


    Unrecorded. Textually complete, as text ends on p. 31, and ads begin; probably lacks one leaf of ads. Cf. McMurtrie 147 & 176, and Byrd 1314, all farriers by Sloan during this period, but not this separate title on cattle. Byrd 1314 refers to Sloan's 1848 Complete Farrier; the printer for Sloan was C. Butterfield; our work was printed for Sloan by Davis & Co. Byrd notes that Sloan "was the first patent medicine 'king' of Chicago."
