CODEX PHARMACOPEE FRANCAISE Redigee par Ordre du Gouvernement par une Commission Composee de Mm. les Professeurs de la Faculte de Medecine, et de l'Ecole Speciale de Pharmacie de Paris. Paris: Bechet Jeune, Libraire de la Faculte de Medecine de Paris, 1837. First edition. 8vo. xvi, 535 pp. +  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.
