FORWARD by CAGLIASTRO MONEY MAKING FORMULAS is an interesting concept as it shows that there was, at the time of the original printing, 1921, an expectation that laboratories would provide formulas and ideas from which individuals could build businesses. This one provides a wide spectrum of choices allowing the reader to explore how things were done when there were less rules, more experimentation and – oh yes – before we knew about toxicity.....so take that into consideration when utilizing these formulas the invention of which are approaching a century ago....... I have added pages for the reader to take notes, as having the option to write down data is quite useful. This book ultimately broadens the view for those who have an idea about how things were done in both home business and self-care at the beginning of the 1900’s. The formulas herein were collected over time by the laboratory so they probably represent half a century prior to the original publishing. Allow me to highlight just a few.... Household items and perfumes...and all manner of curiosities are in this formulary.... The book opens with a section on Special Beverages such as Blood Orange and Champagne Cider. There are Physicians Tonics for Invigoration, and all manner of Auto Polishes and fluids. Having an auto in this period of history was a huge privilege so they were handled with great care. Ways to make Sanitary Ice Cloths for those who choose to sell shaved flavored ices are followed by other oddities – rat poisons, silver polish and my personal favorite, a longer treatment on “The Art of Silvering A Mirror”...fantastic stuff.... General advice suggesting where to purchase chemicals and that one should sell their products for four times the cost of the materials are peppered throughout the book. Often the product already exists and the laboratory gives the suggestion that rather than follow the recipe, one could contact the manufacturer and ask for a quantity to be renamed for private sellers.....amazing... I was surprised to see a significant number of formulas for name brand (from that time) items such as hand cleansers and veterinary supplies. This is a far cry from today’s protective spirit regarding one’s copyrights and patents. There are many preparations for all manner of hair products – keeping Milady’s hair in good form and style. Parisian Body Lotions share a page with Rheumatism cures and a French Brilliantine For Glistening Hair Roots shares space with a Freckle Crème and a Headache Remedy which is really just directions to order aspirin in large quantities and repackage them in small tins and boxes. Imagine today if one decided to just go ahead and be a home based reseller for aspirin.... Wrinkle Crème, Massage Crème, Fig Laxatives, Face Crème and “Perfecto Kidney and Bladder Remedy” follow one another as if there is some thread of category hidden within this group. Liquid Cort Plaster and “Magic Healing Ointment” require Venetian Turpentine and “Shine It Polishing Biskit” calls for concentrated lye. Perfumes and brand name Cholera Remedy, Milk of Roses for a perfect complexion, Tooth Powders and Milady No-Odor Deodorant, Laundry Sheet Bluing and Powdered Fire Extinguishers bring the reader close to the end of the offerings... Finally, Egyptian Face Powder offers formulas for matching skin tones....something modern cosmetics have become fond of... All in, this is a fantastic little book with so many more formulas than I could even highlight in this forward.... Remember this book is from a period of time in which arsenic and strychnine were still thought of as acceptable curatives...so tread quite carefully while considering these formulas.... Enjoy the exploration.............S9 IMPORTANT NOTES ON THE PRESENTATION OF THIS MANUSCRIPT When re-printing old manuscripts, these are the hurdles, and it is with a partnership between myself and the reader’s eye that we do the best we can to rescue the knowledge herein.....
