These images are from the French language version of the trade card distributed by the Liebig Company, which was famous for both producing beef extract and being named after Professor Justus von Liebig, one of chloroform’s discoverers. Relying on the coasts of the Black and Caspian Seas as sources for Datura stramonium, the Liebig Company depicted a Crimean Russian peasant spilling out a basket (upper right) of harvested thornapple fruits. Collected fruits were sorted and decorticated at the Liebig factory (lower left), where a powerful anticholinergic slurry of scopolamine, hyoscyamine, and atropine could be extracted for pharmaceutical purposes.
