Books Info:

The Edinburgh New Dispensatory free pdf Excerpt from The Edinburgh New Dispensatory: Including Complete and Accurate Translations of the London Pharmacopoeia Dublin Pharmacop ia, Published in 1791- Dublin Pharmacopoeia, Published in 1794- And of the New Edition of the Edinburgh Pharmacopoeia, Published in 1803 Dr. Lewis published the first edition of his New Dispensatory in 1753. The principal part of the work was a Commentary upon the London and Edinburgh Pharmacop ias, of both of which it contained a complete and accurate translation. A concise system of the Theory and Practice of Pharmacy was prefixed, as an introduction- and directions for extemporaneous prescription, with many elegant examples, and a collection of efficacious but cheap remedies, for the use of the poor, were added as an Appendix. The manner in which the whole was executed, placed Dr. Lewis at the head of the reformers of Chemical Pharmacy- for he contributed more than any of his predecessors to improve that science, both by the judicious criticism with which he combated the erroneous opinions prevalent in his time, and by the actual and important additions he made to that branch of our knowledge. He was justly rewarded by the decided approbation of the public. During the Author's lifetime many editions were published, each succeeding one receiving the improvements which the advancement of the sciences connected with Pharmacy suggested. After the death of Dr. Lewis- Dr. Wedster, Dr. Duncan, and Dr. Rotheram, successively contributed to maintain the reputation of the work, by taking advantage of the discoveries made in Natural History and Chemistry, and by making those alterations which new editions of the Pharmacop ias, on which it was founded, rendered necessary. From the place of their publication, and to distinguish them from the original work of Dr. Lewis, which was still reprinted without alteration in London, these improved editions were entitled, The Edinburgh New Dispensatory. When the Edinburgh College some time ago determined to publish a new edition of their Pharmacop ia, the booksellers who purchased the copy-right of that work being desirous that it should be accompanied by a corresponding edition of the Edinburgh New Dispensatory, applied to the present Editor to make the necessary alterations.
