It deals with distillation and is the forerunner of the books of Glauber and French, as it is the successor of those of Brunswicke and Ulstadt. It gives an account of plants to be distilled (with drawings of them), of furnaces and other apparatus, and the methods of getting the virtues of plants, animals, and minerals, and their uses in effecting cures. It evinces considerable knowledge of practical pharmaceutical chemistry as then practised, especially as the author admits his want of skill in the art. It contains som e singular remedies, and some curious ideas" (Ferguson). - Mit viel. Abb. chemischer Geräte u. einigen hübschen Pflanzenholzschn. - Sauberes, nur vereinzelt leicht fl. Ex.
