The first edition of this textbook was published in 1926. The new edition follows the design of the earlier editions, but where necessary it has been completely revised and rewritten. It presents the conventional type of information which has long been used in introductory courses in pharmacy, but it does this in an unusually clear and concise manner. Part I includes a brief history of the British Pharmacopoeia, and part II is devoted to general principles involved and the apparatus and methods employed in small scale pharmaceutical operations. Part II is followed successively by sections on pharmaceutic manufacturing, dispensing, microbiology, surgical dressings, sutures and ligatures and pharmaceutic preparations.

The book is written from the viewpoint of the needs of British pharmacy students and pharmacists which, in several respects, are different from those in the United States. However, since basic principles are common to all, the book may be advantageously used
