Notice of the Fourth Edition.
The new Pharmacopoeia of the London College of Physicians of 1836 is so changed from the preceding one of 1824, not only in the nomenclature, but in both the quantities and the processes, while many articles and preparations, altogether new, are introduced, that it became imperative on me in preparing this edition for the press, to revise minutery every line, and to re-write no inconsiderable portion of the whole. In the numerous formulæ inserted in the colume, which are not in any of the College Pharmacopoeias, I deemed it advisable, for the sake of uniformity, to adhere to the nomenclature now ordered by the London College, and hence I have throughout discarded the old terms Muriatic, Muriate, Oxymuriate, Submuriate, Prussiate, Tartar Emetic, Tartarized Antimony, Calomel, Corrosive Sublimate, and the like, taking care always to place those old names in the order of the alphabet, and referring to the new names for the details. In this way, the present edition will be found, I hope, to be very useful for refreshing the memory and for deciphering prescriptions, till physicians, apothecaries, and chemists before familiarised with the new names - a circumstance which must prove not a little embarrassing, for a considerable time to come.
