Pierre Pomet’s ‘General History of Drugs’ is a fascinating and thorough survey of medical references, pharmaceutical preparations, botanical interests, zoology, and mineral mining. Pomet was a 17th-century French pharmacist who traveled throughout Europe learning from physicians and discovering new types of medicines. He opened a drug store in Paris and quickly became one of the most popular manufacturers of medicines in France. He published this catalogue as a supplement to his drug store.

 

An extremely rare first edition – It should be noted, according to Garrison & Morton, this book is

the most complete materia medica of the time.”
