This is the first instalment of the sixth volume of a large system (in German) devoted to the pharmaceutic sciences. It deals with the materia medica from the pharmaceutic standpoint, giving, in connection with each article, the composition, mode of preparation, physical and chemical characteristics, tests for purity and identity, and uses and dosage. The subjects are arranged in alphabetical order; and the thoroughness with which the topic is covered may be gathered from the fact that this instalment of 240 octavo pages does not complete the letter A.
