Hi,

My name's Alex, I'm currently in my final year at the University of Glasgow and I'm researching for my dissertation. It's based on patent/proprietary medicines from Georgian Britain (1714-1840).

I was hoping that I could be pointed in the direction of any good archives, or if anybody had anything in their collection that fit the bill they would be willing to post photos?

Warners safe cure or warners safe kidney and liver cure, so easy to find every kind of information you need on them via Google, and well worth being a topic due to its history, Id be interested to see your write up on them when your done also, and happy to proof read and point out any errors or miscalculations on usages that I know etc,

click a link below please, shows offenders images, see if you can spot anyone who may have tried to reinvent themself as someone else near you, putting those around you in danger as long as they are unknown, could be closer to you than you think, these type of people dont disclose, they do whatever they can to hide their past, but they are still the same, you could change someones life.

I stand corrected, but I'm sure someone has asked something similar before?:ermm: Patent medicine is indeed a decent topic and I hope you do well:cool:. If its any help to you please take a look at the free link below and you will find a number of advertisement for early medicines and even a period feature or two in the news of the day. ;)


Good luck
