Los Angeles: The Ward Ritchie Press, 1954. Pamphlet. 26p., illustrated with a frontis facsimile of a surviving title page, the reprint in hand is softbound, an 8x5.5 inch pamphlet in blue-grey wraps, staple-fastened. Front cover has mild pressure-lines, both covers have a hint of sunning, an otherwise excellent exemplar: sound, clean, unmarked. Many remedies offered make sense to us herbalist new-agers, but here's an exception: for "Erysipelas. Sprinkle the face with the fresh blood of a black hen and tie to the neck a twig of broom. Tried and tested."

Jose de La Rosa was the probable pressman responsible for this Sonoma production. The author, a Spaniard, is unknown. La Rosa's dedicatee would be general Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, who preserved Zamorano's press, first located on the Monterey Peninsula, until it was again confiscated by a hostile Mexican government.
