"The Douglass patent artificial limbs."

Dublin Core

Title

"The Douglass patent artificial limbs."

Subject

Artificial legs

Description

Douglass' advertising pamphlet for his artificial limbs makes a point that, unlike the Salem leg, "these limbs have never been dependent upon the Government for their support, but are thoroughly established on the real and intrinsic merits of the invention. This history of those cheap ephemeral substitutes known as 'government legs' is too well known to make any comments."

Abstract

A circular advertisement for Douglass' artificial limbs.

Springfield, Mass. : Samuel Bowles & Co., printers, 1869
