- The Chemist and Druggist A Weekly Trade Journal / Volume XXVII January to December, 1885

London, 1885. Leather Bound. pp. iv, 748. Index to contents at beginning of volume. 4to. This volume bound in original 3/4 leather over 'patterned' brown buckram. The binding is in poor condition, there being a split to the rear joint and the spine and the front board being detached. The contents remain tightly-bound, however, showing age-toning and some uneven trimming of the pages when the individual issues were bound up (no loss of text). Portion of p. 81 cut out (to remove ad?). Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. A bound volume of this scarce and interesting trade journal. The Chemist and Druggist journal has been in continuous publication since 1859 and is the leading trade journal for the pharmacy community in Great Britain. Early issues contain a wealth of information for studying the history of medicine, pharmacy, and the pharmaceutical trade worldwide. Reproductions of some individual issues may be ordered form the Wellcome Library, but early original issues of this journal are now quite scarce, and they are the ones which are most interesting containing, as they do, news of various national associations (worldwide), 'wills of deceased chemists', 'personalities', business changes, deaths, legal reports, reviews and literary notes, trade reports, current prices for compounding drugs and chemicals, correspondence, and - perhaps most importantly - a section entitled 'Counter Practice' which gives compounding directions for many different remedies and medicines, plus short articles on the efficacy of certain drugs and formulae. Each of the 25 issues in this volume contains about 30 pages, and each also contains one or two pages of advertisements for drugs and medicines of the period. Truly, a fascinating resource.
