Eau Dentifrice [drop-title]. [Together with] Jean-Marie Farina, rue Saint-Honoré, No. 331, Breveté de Sa Majesté Louis XVIII, pour l'invention et l'importation de la Crème du Cathay [drop-title]

Paris, Jean-Marie Farina, [early 1800s].

Two small quarto broadsides (each approximately 250 × 190 mm, printed rectos only); deckle-edged paper a little foxed and toned, and slightly creased; a few manuscript calculations in ink on the verso of the second broadside have bled through slightly; overall, both items are in excellent condition.

The broadsides advertise products stocked by Farina, a Paris perfumer. The first lists the extraordinary properties of the dentifrice of J.C. Dominique Merellini, while the second promotes a skin-whitening cream by way of inflated references to Ariosto's 'Orlando Furioso'. [2 items].
