The Dispensatory of the United States of America - Third Edition
Wood, George B.; Bache, Franklin - 1836

Book Description: Brown leather covered boards with gilt lettering on black blocks on the spine; white front fep with penned names of previous owner, rear fep missing - 'cure for hydrophobia' pasted to inside of back cover. The Appendix only goes up to Potassium salts so at least one page is missing in the end pages; some foxing throughout and yellowing of pages at the edges but the binding is firm and the text is bright and clear; covers are scuffed, shows heavy shelf wear. Dispensatories are commentaries on the official pharmacopoeias. Thus this 176 year old book is chiefly botanical in nature. A treasure from the past; a treasury of information.
