This book is the British physician's pocket manual of the British Pharmacopeia. The larger part of the book is devoted to a consideration of drugs, including all the pharmacopeial preparations, with the medicinal properties and doses, each of which is compared with those of the Continental pharmacopeias and of the United States Pharmacopeia, along with many non-official preparations. The book contains a large amount of general information such as tables for the conversion of different degrees of temperature, for the conversion of weights and measures, suggestions for prescribing, etc. While the book is specially adapted to the needs of those who use the British Pharmacopeia, American physicians will find in it much that is valuable.
