Rare first and only edition of the pharmacopoeia of Mons. Notwithstanding the fact that the pharmacopoeia of Vienna had been the official pharmacopoeia of the then Austrian-Netherlands, the city of Mons published its own pharmacopoeia in 1755, making it the last city in the Low Countries to create a new pharmacopoeia.
With the owner's inscription of L. Brabant on the title-page. Binding worn at the extremities; spine damaged at the head and foot. Several sheets of later paper pasted on the fly-leaves; first quire mounted on stubs; some soiling throughout, notably in the taxa and spots on pp. 196-197; nonetheless a good copy.
Anet (1 copy); Daems & Vandewiele, pp. 65-66 (3 copies); Wellcome IV, p. 368; WorldCat (2 copies); not in Blake.
