About this Item: Antikamnia Chemical Company, St. Louis, MO, 1902. Paperback. Condition: Very Good+. Illustrated by Hyde, Helen (illustrator). This is an advertising calendar produced for the Antikamnia Chemical Company. It pictures a young Japanese girl reading a book on its front; it also has an image of a five-grain Antikamnia tablet highlighted at the bottom left. The calendar, which measures 8x10-3/4", has the months of the year on the back, as well as advertising copy advocating the merits of the five-grain tablets. The Antikamnia Chemical Company made its appearance around 1890 in Saint Louis, Missouri. The trademark was registered that year, but the medicine was never patented. This pain-reliever was apparently mixed with codeine, which is addictive, quinine, and several other items either singly or in combination. Antikamnia was still "riding high" in 1902, when this calendar was produced, but was to virtually collapse with passage of the Pure Food and Drugs Bill in 1906. ABOUT THE ARTIST: One of the best known and most successful American printmakers of the early twentieth century, Helen Hyde (1868-1919) found her identity in Japan where she lived for most of the fifteen years between 1899 and 1914. Arriving in Japan in 1899 she persuaded Kano Tomonobu, the ninth and last master of the Kano school of painting to instruct her in the mysteries of the Japanese brush. Hyde proved such an apt pupil that she took first prize in an annual competition of Japanese painters for her brush drawing, Monarch of Japan. This picture is one of her watercolor images, and is signed in the printing plate. The calendar is printed on heavy cardboard and has rounded edges. It has a 1/4" hole at the top for hanging, and a few lightly rubbed areas along left and bottom edges, has an inconspicuous bump at the bottom left tip, and a few very small scratches to the surface which look more like white cat hairs. Overall it is in VG+ condition. SCAN upon request. Seller Inventory # 28684
