Antique Victorian trade card advertising Nature's Life Preserver: The "Joy" Remedy. This card is in very good condition with little damage and only light wear. Looks to have been pasted into a scrapbook at some point. This card is a representative of the quack medicine of the Nineteenth Century, claiming to be a cure for Consumption, Asthma, coughs, colds, croup and all diseases of the throat and lungs. It also claims to cure: "All diseases, some that were given up as incurable by Physicians."
