A Guide to Therapeutics and Materia Medica.

A Guide to Therapeutics and Materia Medica. This work, well known to students and practitioners, preserves the same form which has characterized it in its former editions, although it has been practically rewritten and very considerably enlarged. In the hands of its author it has been made to accord with the British Pharmacopœia of 1885. There have been seventeen omissions, and the author would gladly have excluded a greater number of useless articles which still receive official sanction. There have been 113 primary articles and their preparations added. The terminations of the names of alkaloids has been made uniform by adopting the English -ine and Latin -ina, i. e., codeine and codeina. Both the metric and apothecaries' systems are used side by side throughout the book. The American editor has added some sixty pages at the end of the volume, including a few new non-officinal preparations and an Epitome of the National Formulary issued by the Committee http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

This work, well known to students and practitioners, preserves the same form which has characterized it in its former editions, although it has been practically rewritten and very considerably enlarged. In the hands of its author it has been made to accord with the British Pharmacopœia of 1885. There have been seventeen omissions, and the author would gladly have excluded a greater number of useless articles which still receive official sanction. There have been 113 primary articles and their preparations added. The terminations of the names of alkaloids has been made uniform by adopting the English -ine and Latin -ina, i. e., codeine and codeina.
