This is weird and cool. Front cover says "Trees" among pictures of a "Catalpa Speciosa" and a picture of a deer watching a riverboat. Inside one page is some quack snake oil or pill and the following page is about trees. I assume it is supposed to be educational, but also lend credence to the goofy medical claims by mixing them with legit information about trees. Weird. The back cover is a picture of Criger with a caption claiming he uses "Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills." to fight headaches. Unfortunately there is some light blue scribble on the inside and outside of the back cover, otherwise this is in fantastic condition for a cheaply made piece that must be over 100 years old.
