A leather bound volume comprising pharmaceutical and medicinal recipes written in Latin probably by a pharmacist or physician in England between the years 1761 to 1799.
Extent: 0.1 linear foot (1 volume)
This book of notes on Materia Medica, written in Latin, is neither signed nor dated and contains relatively little contextualizing information. Approximately the first third of the book (through page 80) consists of medical receipts, while the rest of the text contains an alphabetized list of medicinal substances, most of which are plants, though some mineral and animal products are described as well. The term 'Materia Medica' refers to the collected body of knowledge of medicinal substances and their therapeutic applications.
