CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As all of our customers will be aware, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is likely to cause disruption to many services. Although everyone at Dandy is currently fit and well, restrictions that have been imposed, both voluntary and compulsory, have already begun to affect our supply chains. This is particularly true for our many overseas customers, where border and transport restrictions can be imposed at little notice. We will always try to keep you informed of any problems that may affect your order, but we ask for your understanding at this difficult time. If you have any questions, then please email us at enquiries@dandybooksellers.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Electronic products such as e-books and online subscriptions should be largely unaffected, but please allow us a little longer time than usual to respond.

Popular Medicines: An illustrated history contains fascinating histories of well-known medicines. Historical details of 21 popular branded medicines are provided, some of which date back to the earliest proprietary medicines in the sixteenth century.

Each pictorial history includes biographical details of the inventor, the origins of the medicine and its subsequent history and details of the medicine's formula and intended purpose. Each entry is highly illustrated including colourful historical adverts, portraits, photographs and images of the medicines themselves.

Popular Medicines will appeal to pharmaceutical, medical and social historians, medical libraries, archives and museums, pharmacists and the general public.
