    At the Grand Rapids, Michigan, bottle show today, I was talked into buying this boxed and labeled Warner's Safe Pills with fold-out ad/instructions fairly cheaply.

    The bottom and top are missing, but I will add a new bottom as I restore books and it will be similar in method. As for top, I will leave it alone.

    It is in several languages (English, Italian, French...), and from what I gather is an 1880s-1890s medicine. Is this correct?
    What is "...safe with negro gather herbs..."?

    This is my only Warner's piece, which I picked up only because I'd like to specialise in paper-label items of small size.

    On e-Bay recently, the box and instructions only recently sold for about $10 plus shipping.
    And un-opened version sold for $54.
    So I think I did well, albeit mine is opened and missing the pills.

    Welcome back! Yes it is a 1880-90s vintage medicine. don't know unless they mean that the herbs and spices were harvested by black folk back in the day, meaning they had knowledge of the herbs and spices medicinal qualities, just an educated guess....Andy

    hey Robert, not to change the subject to much, but, have you ever gone back to that old building with the hole in the wall that is so dark where the bottle was actually in the concrete wall???

    Yes, Andy, I did.

    It is now owned. I talked to the owner and learned of his plans for the lot. They will be finalised very soon.

    I left out the "I dig here" part as I came to do "good" (the old was preliminary) photography, which didn't happen.
