About this Item

Prescription Book of Dr. F. Baidials, 1842. 8vo. Rebacked with modern calf, original marble boards. Sixty eight pages or loose sheets from physicians or pharmacists of prescriptions to treat various ailments and sickness are bound in this small volume. There are many additional pages, all blank. This is an interesting collection of recipies as the originator of many is noted or signed at the end of the prescribed treatment. Included is a rare printed prescription form from J(ohn) M(artin) Bigelow M.D. who was both physician and botanist. The recipe is written out in ink. Bigelow made significant contributions to the Mexican Boundary Survey as collector and classifier. He and C. C. Parry were the major collectors of plants. On a second exploration for the Railroad series, Bigelow found the Parthenium argentatum, a rubber-yielding plant commonly known by its Mexican name 'guayule.'. Bookseller Inventory # 0000391
