The author, William Cullen (1710-1790), was a physician and lecturer on chemistry and materia medica at the University of Edinburgh. The series of lectures on materia medica that he presented in 1760 were published in an unauthorized edition in 1771; Cullen published his version of the lectures in this work in 1789 shortly before his death. This edition was enlarged by Benjamin Smith Barton (1766-1815), who studied medicine in the 1780s first at the College of Philadelphia under Dr. Thomas Shippen and Dr. Benjamin Rush, and then at the University of Edinburgh. In 1796 Barton became professor of materia medica at the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1812 he published this expanded edition of William Cullen's work on materia medica. In Good+ Condition: leather is rubbed with some loss of gilt on spine; edges and corners heavily rubbed; dampstained in lower gutter of first few and last few pages; occasional foxing; general browning of pages; otherwise clean and tight.
