Wing R2105. - FIRST EDITION under this title according to Wing. "The Pharmacopoeia of the Royal College of Physicians represents the first attempt at an official list of drugs and medicines for common usage, selected chiefly from the works of Mesue and Nicholas of Salerno. The first edition of 1618 was found to be so full of errors that the whole edition was suppressed and a fresh edition published the following December. Thereafter it remained substantially unchanged except for minor corrections and additions until the edition of 1721 published under the auspices of Sir Henry Sloane, when many important alterations were made. Hardly ever do the early editions appear on the market and only a handful of copies are known to exist, mainly in English institutional libraries ... Especially rare if found with the stunning large, double-page view of the Royal College of Physicians, designed and engraved by the Danzig-born David Loggan, engraver to the University of Oxford, the celebrated artist and author of 'Oxonia Illustrata.'
