Description - The Victorian Chemist and Druggist by W.A. Jackson

After a brief historical introduction and a description of a Victorian chemist and druggist's shop, this book describes and illustrates many of the items used and sold there. Most of the dispensing equipment and containers for the drugs used are now obsolete and appear from time to time in antique shops and at collectors' fairs. Articles sold over the counter included medicines, perfumes and toiletries and a wide variety of objects used in the sickroom or nursery. The book also contains a chapter on medical and surgical instruments and will help in the identification of the medical bygones which were in everyday use in the nineteenth century..
