The Verso contains the ownership signature of Dr. Guy Ellison, chemist and President of Van Horn & Co, New York City's first upscale drug store, which he ran with his brother-in-law, Alfred Van Horn, on East 41st Street at the turn of the century. Legal issues caused them to declare bankruptcy and reorganize the business, which was ultimately purchased by Johnson & Johnson.
