The Antikamnia Chemical Company Calendars (1897-1900)


"The Antikamnia ("Opposed to Pain") Chemical Company of St. Louis, Missouri produced several calendars (1897-1901) illustrated with "Skeleton Sketches"--chromolithographed series based on watercolors by the local physician-artist Louis Crucius. The limited edition calendars were mailed to physicians who provided business cards or letterhead correspondence as evidence of their medical standing. Antikamnia was a proprietary product consisting of acetanalid (antifebrin) combined with sodium bicarbonate, citric acid and caffeine. " via
