by [PARMENTIER, Antoine Augustin, attributed author]
63 pp. 8vo, orig. blue boards, interleaved throughout. Paris: de l'Imprimerie du Département de la Guerre, An II [1793-94]. First edition of this pharmaceutical formulary prepared for the military hospitals of France. Quérard attributes the authorship to Parmentier (1737-1813), who held the position of apothicaire-major of the Hôtel Royal des Invalides for several years and "carved out a brilliant career in military pharmacy, eventually achieving the rank of inspector general in the army health service."-D.S.B., X, p. 325. This copy is quite interesting, having been interleaved with contemporary additional pharmaceutical recipes written on many of the interleavings. Fine copy and quite scarce. (Inventory #: 6580)
