Some History from the Derby Connecticut Historical Society:

ALBERT W. PHILLIPS, M. D. was born at Marcellus, N. Y., July 26, 1838, his early education having been secured in the common schools of his native town.

He graduated from the Hannemann Homoepathic College, Chicago, Ill., in 1861.

At the commencement of the Rebellion, he enlisted as a private in the 12th Regiment, New York State Volunteers, but was later appointed hospital steward of the same regiment, and later received the appointment of assistant surgeon of the 149th Regiment New York Volunteers. He served until the close of the war, when he moved to Birmingham. He held the office of registrar of vital statistics, and also was an influential member of the Board of Burgess for several years. He was the only follower of the school "similia similibus curantur" in the town, and had a large and lucrative practice.

Prior to the 1880s, Dr. Robert Fuller of New York, developed the method of making tablet triturates. Fuller described it as "A new device for putting medicine into a form that should admit an accurate, easy, compact and palatable administration". The tablets which were also known as "molded tablets", were made from a paste like mixture of the drug. The making of tablet triturates was a process easily adapted for use in the local pharmacy and most druggists of the late 19th century and early 20th century prepared the tablets using the small molds.

This tablet mold is a wonderful ONE GRAIN example of and early pharmacy "tool of the trade" and should not be missed by the novice or advanced collector. The mold is complete with the original box and in very nice condition except for minor surface wear that is commensurate with mild use and age. Also note that an unobtrusive dime size piece of the the label near the middle left portion of box is missing (unable to get an adequate picture). The box measures 6.5 inches long x 3 inches wide and shows mild wear. Don't miss this beauty! Dates from 1890 - 1900.
