Rare second edition of the Dutch translation of the Brussels pharmacopoeia. Like the first Dutch edition of 1742, the translation was based on the second Latin edition originally published in 1671. Interestingly, when this edition was published in 1775, the Viennese pharmacopoeia had been the official pharmacopoeia of Brussels since 1747.
With the bookplate of the Gouda pharmacist Elize Grendel (1899-1986). Binding somewhat worn and crudely rebacked. Dog-eared and some spots; a good copy. Anet (1 copy); Daems & Vandewiele, pp. 82-83 (1 copy); STCN (2 copies including 1 incomplete); WorldCat (3 copies); not in Wellcome; NLM.
