Formulaire Pharmaceutique, à l’Usage des Hôpitaux militaires de la République Française.

63 pp. 8vo, orig. blue boards, interleaved throughout. Paris: de l’Imprimerie du Département de la Guerre, An II [1793-94].

First edition of this pharmaceutical formulary prepared for the military hospitals of France. Quérard attributes the authorship to Parmentier (1737-1813), who held the position of apothicaire-major of the Hôtel Royal des Invalides for several years and “carved out a brilliant career in military pharmacy, eventually achieving the rank of inspector general in the army health service.”–D.S.B., X, p. 325.

This copy is quite interesting, having been interleaved with contemporary additional pharmaceutical recipes written on many of the interleavings.

Fine copy and quite scarce.
