Handbuch der Pharmakognosie

Article metrics


DURING the past twenty-five years there has been no lack, in Europe or in the United States, of textbooks of pharmacognosy, most of which have been designed to meet the requirements of limited circles of students, and have doubtless more, or less efli-ciently served their purpose. But Prof. Tschirch intends his handbook of pharmacognosy to be a work of different character from any of these, of wider scope and higher aims, extending and deepening the scientific foundations of pharmacognosy, a field upon which Prof. Tschirch, assisted by his numerous pupils, has laboured for many years.

Handbuch der Pharmakognosie.

By Prof. A. Tschirch. Part i. (Leipzig: Chr. Herm. Tauchnitz, 1908.) To be completed in about 30 parts at 2 marks (2s.) each.
