About this Item

Near Fine. First Edition. Very unusual book published by Wellcome pharmaceuticals, including a 50-page history of vaccination and 310-page alphabetical guide to drugs, their medical uses and quantitoes of ingredients required to make up prescriptions. There are numerous plates, some in full colour, adverts and information about Wellcome Burroughs. The book is undated but was clearly issued in 1912 or 1913 since it includes a calendar for 1913. The text is in German throughout. Similar volumes were produced at this time in English and French. Full scarlet cloth lettered and decorated in gilt to front cover with blind-stamped view of the Wellcome laboratories in dartford, London on the rear cover. Rounded corners, all edges gilt. A fascinating little book and extremely scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 2055

Store Description

I have recently moved the majority of my stock (c.20,000 volumes) to a beautiful new book-house in Szeged, Hungary. Most of these have been in storage for a number of years and have never been offered for sale online. My stock is hand-picked and consists principally of literary first editions in English, French, German and Hungarian. Over the coming months and years I will be uploading these books to ABE, launching a Hungarian booksearch service and starting my own publishing company. Watch this space as there will be some real rarities for sale. Please contact me with any wants in the field of 19th & 20th century literature as I may have just what you want in stock.
