Botanical Companion to the British Pharmacopoeia
This Pamphlet has been written with the object of supplying, to Students of Medicine, a ready means of acquiring that special information which, heretofore, they had much trouble and attendant loss of time in searching for through cumbrous works on the subject. Charts are the usual vehicles employed for conveying this kind of information, but the want of portability materially lessens their usefulness. A short sketch of the Classes and Sub-Classes of the Vegetable Kingdom has first been given, this is followed by a description of the characters, of the Natural Orders of the Plants of the British Pharmacopoeia, and the Names of the Plants, with their Orders and Officinal Parts, arranged in a tabular form. I have considered it advisable to include the Linnsean Classes and Orders, as they are frequently asked by Examining Boards. Should the object in view be attained, and the labour of the Student lightened, the earnest wishes of the Author will have been amply fulfilled.
