This is the first set of molds I have seen complete with all attachments. Clearly an unusual find. A rare opportunity to add a wonderful pharmacy tool - of the - trade to your collection.
EUPHORBIA PILUIFERA - noted in an 1891 JAMA abstract: Quite recently, at the suggestion of my friend Dr. E. T. Sabal, of Jacksonville, Florida, I have used the remedy named, euphorbia pilulifera, for the relief of a most stubborn case of hereditary asthma, and the results are such that I feel warranted in calling the attention of the profession to it, and also making an effort to compile some statistics which will be of service to us in the future. It is a popular domestic remedy in Australia, and has been used for the relief of coughs, colds and other like disturbances of the air-passages, but more especially in the treatment of asthma.
This dual purpose pharmacy tool of the trade measures about 9 inches high and retains much of its original black japanned surface.
The label is complete, a bit faded in one area (red printed portion) but otherwise sports great lithography.
A fabulous addition to any doctor or medical collection!
The contents include copious information on such as: ETIOLOGY, DIAGNOSTIC INDICATIONS, DISEASE PROGRESS & PROGNOSIS, TREATMENT, REMEDIES and much more.
