An interesting look at the history of Pharmacies and how they came into their own in the Victorian era. One of the major players is Boots and this books talks about the development of the chain from humble beginnings.

It's not a deep book and most of the recipes in it are clearly marked with a skull and crossbones, today they would be considered to be way too dangerous to even try. I must admit there were a few where I played a game of spot the dangerous chemical (who knew having a background in chemistry could make you smile!)

This is a companion to the TV series, which I've seen a few episodes of, and as a companion it's good. As well as the dangerous recipes it also has some more usable sidebarred recipes. Everything from curry powder to hand cream.

As a starting point on looking at earlier medicine it's good, there's a pretty extensive bibliography in the back. Who knew that Boots had a subscription library until 1966? ( )

in 1898, the book departments were turned into Boot's Booklover's Library: customers were charged 2d to borrow a book, and the concept was hugely popular. The books were always kept at the back of the store so customers had to walk right through to get to them. It also gave people something to do while they waited for their prescriptions. At its height in 1938, the department was attracting one million subscribers, with books being exchanged at a rate of 35 million per year. The libraries were closed in 1966.
