 RADCLIFFE, JOHN, Pharmacopoeia Radcliffeana
RADCLIFFE, JOHN
Pharmacopoeia Radcliffeana
1716. RADCLIFFE, John. PHARMACOPOEIA RADCLIFFEANA; or Dr. Radcliff's prescriptions, faithfully gather'd from his Original Recipe's. To which are annex'd, Useful Observations upon each Prescription. [By Edward Strother.] London: Printed for Charles Rivington .. 1716. First edition. 12mo. xii, 166, [2] pp. The final leaf is a publisher's advertisement. Bookblock sound; however, the upper board is detached and the lower board is missing. Ex library, ink stamp on title-page and p. 50. Text pages are age toned, some with light to moderate foxing. A popular work, a second edition with a portrait was issued the same year as the first (which was issued without a portrait), as was a second part entitled "Pharmacopoeiae Radcliffeanae pars altera." A complete copy of the first edition of the first part that needs rebinding and is offered as is. John Radcliffe (1650-1714) was a successful, Oxford-educated, English physician. He established a large practice at London that was as much a result of his witty conversation as his clinical skill and accurate prognoses, though sometimes his wit seems to have verged on rudeness, especially to his social superiors, and his prognoses were blunt. He became chief physician to the Princess Anne in 1686, after which he was employed professionally by William III, whom he eventually offended. At his death he bequeathed money in trust to Oxford University to build and maintain a library, which was completed in 1747 and still bears his name, and other large sums for charitable use. (Wellcome IV, p. 462; D.N.B.). .

COMMITTEE OF REVISION AND PUBLICATION
Notes on the Revision of the Sixth Decennial Pharmacopoeia of the U.S.
1880. COMMITTEE OF REVISION AND PUBLICATION. NOTES ON THE REVISION OF THE SIXTH DECENNIAL PHARMACOPOEIA OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Oblong folio, ex-library with usual markings. Quarter morocco, library binding. Spine title: "U.S. PHARMACOPOEIA REVISION 1 - 90." Thick (2 3/4 inches) bound collection of mimeographed and manuscript notes and circulars from the Committee of Revision and Publication for the Sixth Decennial Revision, which was published in October 1882. Also included are offprints of related articles from various journals and what appear to be printed revisions. These are arranged somewhat chronologically, some out of order, and are dated from 1880-1881. This was the most radical revision of the Pharmacopoeia since the first edition of 1820, and included such amendments as the adoption of the metric system of weights and measures, an end to the practice of polypharmacy (mixing drugs into one formula), standardization of tincture concentrations at 10%, new classes of preparations such as abstracta, elixirs, oleates and triturations, and the abolition of fluid measures in the working formulas. Many documents bear the signature of committee head Charles Rice. See Haller: "The United States Pharmacopoeia: Its Origin and Revision in the 19th Century", Bulletin of the NY Academy of Medicine, 1982 June; 58 (5) pp. 480-492. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1805252/pdf/bul lnyacadmed00091-0058.pdf. .
