Garrison & Morton 1845. First edition of the first official pharmacopoeia of the United States. The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) was founded in 1820, a few years after the proposition of Dr. Lyman Spalding in 1817. The works starts with a "historical introduction" on how the project for a national pharmacopoeia was started and wat its goals are supposed to be. The main text gives the directions for the production of medicines. On the left pages the recipes are given in Latin, on the right the English translation is given. Included at the end is an index both in Latin and English. With bookplate and owner's inscription. Binding rubbed along the extremities, rebacked. Browned, waterstaind and major foxing, especially in the second half of the books. Overall a fair copy.
