THE LABEL INDEX AND SHEETS OF MEDICNE BOTTLE LABELS.

THESE LABELS ARE REPRODUCTIONS OF THE ORIGINAL LABELS FROM DR. THOMAS RITTER IN NEW YORK.

THE ORIGINALS CAN BE SEEN IN THE 'PICTORIAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CIVIL WAR MEDICAL INSTRUMENTS AND EQUIPMENT', VOL. ONE, BY DR. GORDON DAMMANN ON PAGES 63 THRU 68 FOR REFERENCE.

SURGEONS BANDAGE LABELS,

AND MOST IMPORTANT - THE 6 PAGE COMPLETE DESCRIPTION OF ALL THE MEDICINES IN THE 1849 PANNIER AND WHAT CURRENT MATERIAL TO USE FOR YOUR IMPRESSION OF THE MEDICINE, WHICH INCLUDES THE COLORS AND ORIGINAL USES OF THE MEDICINES,

A SHEET OF NUMBERS FOR YOU TO PLACE ON THE TOPS OF YOUR CORKS OF MEDICINE BOTTLES IN THE PANNIER, THIS WAS HOW THE HOSPITAL STEWARD/SURGEON IDENTIFIED THE MEDICINES FROM LOOKING AT THEM FROM ABOVE IN THE CASE.

COPIES OF 3 ACTUAL REQUISTION FORMS FOR THE SURGEON OR HOSPITAL STEWARD,

A SHEET MEDICAL LOGO'S FOR YOU TO CUT OUT AND PASTE TO BOXES, PITCHERS AND BOWLS, URINALS, JUST ABOUT ANYTHING TO IDENTIFY THEM AS FROM THE MEDICAL DEPT.

I PORTRAY A SURGEON, AND HOSPITAL STEWARD AT LIVING HISTORIES AND CIVIL WAR REENACTMENTS. I HAVE ACCUMULATED THESE FORMS OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS AND USE THEM IN MY IMPRESSIONS. SOME HAVE BEEN COPIES FROM ORIGINAL CIVIL WAR DOCUMENTS AND MANY HAVE COME FROM OTHER SURGEONS IN THE HOBBY.

THESE FORMS ARE TO BE USED AS YOUR ORIGINALS, PLEASE MAKE COPIES OF THEM FOR YOUR IMPRESSIONS. I HAVE FOUND THAT CREAM COLORED PAPER AND PARCHMENT PAPER LOOK THE BEST. THESE COPIES I SEND YOU ARE ON WHITE PAPER SO YOU CAN MAKE NICE CLEAR COPIES FROM THEM.

TO GIVE THE FORMS AND LABELS AN ANTIQUE LOOK, USE INSTANT COFFEE AND WATER IN A SPRAY BOTTLE OR ON A SPONGE. THE MORE COFFEE YOU USE - THE DARKER THE LOOK. EXPERIMENT FIRST ON A BLANK PAPER. USE THE STAIN ON THE WHOLE SHEET, THEN CUT THE LABELS OUT, YOU WILL FIND THIS WORKS WELL. YOU CAN EVEN SPRAY A CLEAR VARNISH OVER THE SHEET, THIS WILL GIVE THEM A VERY PERIOD LOOK.

USE A GLUE STICK TO ATTACH THE LABELS TO YOUR BOTTLES.

IS THE LIST OF THE PAPERS I WILL SEND YOU....

COVER SHEET THAT LISTS ALL 52 MEDICINES IN THE 1849 U.S. MEDICAL DEPT. PANNIER.

6 PAGES OF LABELS FOR ALL 52 MEDICINES IN THE 1849 PANNIER AND OTHERS. AN ADDITIONAL 20 LABELS ON TWO SHEETS OF OTHER MEDICINES CARRIED BY THE SURGEONS OF THE DAY. THESE INCLUDE, BLUE MASS, POWDER JALAP, CALOMEL, USA HOSP. DEPT., CS HOSPITAL DEPT., DOVER'S POWDER, GINGER, SASSAFRASS AND MORE.

A VERY IMPORTANT INDEX ...

6 PAGES TO THE INDEX TO THE 1849 MEDICINE PANNIER WHICH INCLUDES THE USES FOR EACH MEDICINE,

ORIGINAL COLOR SO YOU CAN CREATE A LIKE APPEARANCE TO THE ORIGINALS,

DOSAGE AMOUNTS,

AND GENERAL DESCRIPTIONS,

AND MOST IMPORTANT WHAT EACH MEDICINE WAS USED FOR.

5 SHEETS THAT HAVE THE 1849 MEDICINE PANNIER'S MEDICINE NAMES. THIS ARE TO BE CUT UP AND PLACED ON MEDICINE VIALS FOR OTHER MEDICINE BOTTLES YOU HAVE. INCLUDING THE ADDED MEDICINES MENTIONED ABOVE.

A SHEET OF NUMBERS FROM 1 TO 52 FOR YOU TO PLACE ON THE TOPS OF YOUR CORKS IN THE PANNIER. THIS WAS HOW THEY WERE IDENTIFIED WHILE STANDING UP IN THE PANNIER. A SURGEON NEED ONLY STATE THE NUMBER OF THE MEDICINE AND THE NURSE OR HOSPITAL STEWARD KNEW EXACTLY WHAT MEDICINE IT WAS.

USE A HOLE PUNCH ON THESE AND THEN PASTE TO THE TOP OF THE CORKS.

ANOTHER THING TO REMEMBER...

YOU CAN ENLARGE OR REDUCE THE SIZE OF THE COPIES ON THE COPY MACHINE OF THE LABELS, IN THIS WAY A LARGER MEDICINE BOTTLE CAN HAVE A LARGER LABEL, A SMALLER ONE THE SAME.

THIS WILL GIVE YOU A NON-UNIFORM LOOK AND BE VERY ACCURATE IN THE IMPRESSION.

ALSO YOU CAN DO A CUT AND PASTE IF YOU WISH TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE DRUGGIST TO FIT YOUR HO...
