Product Description
Intoxicants & Potions: Forgotten English II Knowledge Cards
From the murky depths of the English language, Jeffrey Kacirk has amassed yet another 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.

Tastefully illustrated, the cards present a word on one side and its definition, quoted from a host of archaic references, on the other.
