Ghost Towns & Medicines The Nevada Bottle Book Volume II
By Fred N. Holabird
Fred Holabird has written Volume II in his The Nevada Bottle Book series, this one focusing on drug store bottles from Nevada. At 480 pages this book is chock full of color advertising, pictures of towns, bottles and ephemera of all types. If it happened in Nevada or is related to anything in Nevada during its growing period from roughly 1859 and on, there is something on it in this book. For bottle collectors or just anyone with even a remote interest in Nevada history, this book covers the subject beyond good. Covering everything from pharmacology to mining and glass manufacturing on the west coast and of course bottles, the book is important in the way the early building of the west was. It lights up the eyes with grandiose pictures and frozen images from years past filling the head with imaginative thought and a daring primal journey.
