Pharmacopoeia Londinensis



Pharmacopœia Londinensis:
or the
London Dispensatory

Further adorned by the Studies and Collections of
the Fellows, now living of the said
C O L L E D G .


This is a real treasure.

Culpeper's first version of this publication was The Physicall Directory which was first published in 1649. Following on from this was the English Physitian, published in 1652. Here he describes the plants as well.

Then in 1653 he published the London Dispensatory, followed by this copy, the enlarged edition of the College’s Pharmacopoeia Londinensis - a First Edition in this format.

Gilt title on spine.

The spine was previously in pieces, but has been repaired and strengthened incorporating the original pieces.

"Wherein you may find,

1. The Vertues, Qualitites, and Properties of every Simple.
2. The Vertues and Use of the Compounds.
3. Cautions in giving all Medicines that are dangerous.
4. All the Medicines that were in the Old Latin Dispensatory, and are left out in the New Latin one, are printed in this fourth Impression in English with their Vertues.
5. A Key to Galen’s Method of Physick, containing thirty three chapters.
6. What is added to the Book by the Translator, is of a different Letter from that which was made by the Colledg.
7. In this Impression the Latin name of every one of the Compounds is printed, and in what page of the New Folio Latin Book they are to be found.

By Nich. Culpeper Gent. Student in physic and astrology; living in Spittle-fields neer London."

My physical description of this book is in picture form, and I have taken pictures of what I consider to be the most appropriate pages to show the best and worst properties.

If you wish to see all the pictures - Please be Patient ... This may take a while to load on your screen!

Sadly, an early owner of this book has cut out one of the recipes.
