About this Item

BIGELOW, Jacob. A Treatise of the Materia Medica, Intended As A Sequel to the Pharmacopoeia of the United States: Being An Account of the Origin, Qualities, and Medical Uses of the Articles and Compounds, Which Constitute that Work, With Their Modes of Prescription and Administration. Boston. 1822. 424pp. Contemporary calf, gilt morocco label. Very Good. NOTABLE MEDICAL BOOKS FROM THE LILLY LIBRARY, p.175. CORDASCO 20- 0074. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 8060. The first "Pharmacopoeia of the United States" was issued under the supervision of Lyman Spalding in 1820, and Bigelow was largely instrumental in its publication. In the present work Bigelow gives the origin, qualities, and medical uses of hundreds of plants, vegetables, herbs, etc., which were included in the earlier work. Jacob Bigelow, a physician, was one of the most prominent practitioners of American medical botany of his day. He studied under Benjamin Smith Barton, the leading botanist of his day, before himself becoming a professor of materia medica at Harvard in 1815. "Bigelow's vision insured that the whole United States would have a single unified materia medica" - Lilly catalogue. Bookseller Inventory # 47282
