19TH CENTURY PHARMACEUTICAL BOOK OF ANTIDOTES AND FORMULAS. [America? c.1840]. Compilation of pharmaceutical elixirs and remedies beginning with formulas for antidotes and including entries for Cannabis and Opium. Written in English with Latin names, some entries left unfinished; 9pp. of commentary in German and index at rear. Bound in early decorative paper boards; (text block loose, but holding at few quires, somewhat brittle; spine chipped, rubbed). The first known chemical processes were carried out by the artisans of Mesopotamia, Egypt, and China. By the 19th century, the practice evolved out of medicine and started developing as a separate profession. Subsequently, the role of pharmacist as a compounder of medicines was differentiated from physician whose role was now accepted more as the therapist. The pharmaceutical practice in the 19th century was restricted to compounding, dispensing and manufacturing medication in bulk lots not for general sale. The medicine commonly produced was simple elixirs, spirits, and powders. The 19th century witnessed various milestones being set in the field of pharmacy. In 1821, first school of pharmacy was established in U.S at Philadelphia. The first U.S pharmacopoeia was published in 1820. Interesting manuscript survivals both dating to an important time for growth in the pharmaceutical industry. Bookseller Inventory # D12915
