CODEX PHARMACOPÉE FRANÇAISE Rédigée par Ordre du Gouvernement par une Commission Composée de Mm. les Professeurs de la Faculté de Médecine, et de l'École Spéciale de Pharmacie de Paris. Paris: Béchet Jeune, Libraire de la Faculté de Médecine de Paris, 1837. First edition. 8vo. xvi, 535 pp. + [4] ff. illustrated ads for glass and porcelain lab vessels. This pharmacopeia replaced the Codex of 1818. The "Commission de redaction" was headed by Orfila and included Andral, Caventou, Pelletier, and Soubeiran (all cited in Garrison-Morton). Ex-library, stamps on pastedown, title page and following leaf, and a small label on the copyright page. Half leather and marbled boards, rubbed. Dampstain to lower corner of last third of text leaves; else internally very good. Despite these defects, the book appears rather pleasing.
