Field gte not in database
From the murky
depths of the English language, Jeffrey Kacirk has amassed this storehouse of
linguistic treasures. Drawing on centuries of commentary, folklore, and literature,
Kacirk unearths forty-eight definitions of once-popular tonics, purgatives,
cordials, restoratives, gargles, medicinals, analgesics, and recreational
toxins. When you've learned from these cards what people used to drink, wear on
their heads, or stick up their noses, you'll understand why European history
has unfolded in such a peculiar fashion.
With 48 fact-filled cards per package, these Knowledge Cards are a great source
of condensed information–all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards.
Tastefully illustrated, the cards present a word on one side and its
definition, quoted from a host of archaic references, on the other.
