Virginia-Carolina Chemical Company pocket notebook

Identifier: 2022-536
Scope and content

The advertising is more puff than substance, but there is a useful list of the various products marketed by the Virginia-Carolina Chemical Company in the years 1916-1917. These are organized by type and include "guaranteed analyses" of the Ammonia, A.P.A. and Potash contents of each product. A former owner of the notebook wrote some figures in pencil on the first blank page, but they don't seem to add up to much.

Dates: 1916
