Fenners Complete Formulary and Handbook of 1888


Take a trip through time and discover what proprietary ingredients went into the medicine cures found inside those antique medicine bottles that are now endeared collectibles! Who knows, maybe you can cook up something interesting from the formulas found inside this ebook.
Fenner's was meant to be a working sourcebook for the individual pharmacist desiring to furnish product for a pharmacy. Every possible product is dealt with, from tinctures to fluidextracts to dyes to wax paper to imitation booze. Not worried about the "official" status of a preparation, if there was a customer demand, Fenner dealt with it.
