You can search for ads in the database American Periodical Series Online. Go to the link below and click on "Document Type" and select "Advertisement."

 

(APS Online) includes digitized images of the pages of American magazines and journals published from colonial days to the dawn of the 20th century.

 

Also, take a look at the website, AdAccess, from the Duke University Libraries:  http://library.duke.edu/digitalcollections/adaccess/
