"Apothecary Jars. Pharmaceutical Pottery and Porcelain in Europe and the East, 1150-1850, with a Glossary of Terms used in Apothecary Jar Inscriptions"

This scholarly study includes chapters on Italy, England, France, the Low Countries, Spain & Portugal, Germany & Austria, Switzerland, Denmark & Sweden, and China. The supplemental section on inscriptions also explains what each remedy was used for, which is an interesting study in itself.Hardcover. 6.5"x10", 249 pages, 8 color plates and 96 black & white illustrations, dust jacket. Jacket torn at the top of the spine and a slight tear on the rear panel, paper a bit toned, else in very nice condition indeed.===
Bid as of the moment I'm pasting this is $350.
