Wouldn't it be economical to make your own glue, paint, crayons, lipstick and deodorant? How about fireworks, dynamite and medicinal' opium wine? This fascinating book, reprinted from the 1930s, takes the reader back to a time when Americans had access to hard drugs; people were responsible enough to be given recipes for poisons, explosives and highly addictive substances; and making such items as soap, disinfectants and insecticides was commonplace. A useful tome, books such as this were seen in most homes as important as ice coolers and canning equipment.'
