The British Pharmaceutical Codex, 1934. Supplements 1–7


    THE last edition of the British Pharmaceutical Codex appeared in 1934. This most valuable book provides an indispensable extension of the brief official monographs of the British Pharmacopoeia. It has been kept up to date by the publication of seven supplements during the years 1940-45, and these have now been published together in one volume, which is much easier to handle than seven thin booklets. The first supplement deals with standard dressings and the fifth with quinine preparations. The other supplements contain a large number of new monographs and amendments to old monographs. The list of proprietary names has been considerably extended. A complete index covering all these supplements is included, and this makes it easy to find any information about specific preparations; but it is hoped that it will not now be long before this rather cumbrous accumulation of supplements will be replaced by a new edition of the Codex.
