Directions for Extemporaneous Prescriptions; V. A collection of cheap remedies for the Use of the Poor, the whole interspersed with practical cautions and observations. Intended as a correction and improvement of Quincy.’ 664 pages, very clean throughout, in original boards sympathetically re-backed with brown leather and red labels. The lettering on the spine incorrectly identifies the author as (John) Quincy, whose seminal Pharmocopoeia officinalis & extemporanea; or, a Compleat English Dispensatory was first published in 1718.
