Book Description

First edition thus: “Translated into English, With Notes, Indexes of new Names, Preparations, &c, &c. By Thomas Healde, M.D., F.R.S.” A very good copy **in original boards**, though re-spined early on with a dark paper; edges worn, covers toned and marked. First (Royal Approbation leaf) and last (Posological Table) printed leaves used at pastedowns, resulting in much foxing to them and adjacent leaves, minor foxing thereafter; crack to block just starting in one place; closed tear to rear pastedown.
Dealer Notes
The Royal College of Physicians of London began publishing their Pharmacopoeia — a book of recipes for medical compounds — in the early 17th century. It was printed in Latin for about 170 years, until the publication of this, The New Pharmacopoeia ..., as herein. This edition was immediately reprinted, reaching its third edition in the same year; it was superceded by John Latham’s revised and adapted 5th edition, based largely on Healde’s work, in 1791.
