Was asked a question re what the Apothecaries carried back in the Early periods - so felt it prudent to share...
Not a complete list - each Apothecary varied according to county - and area - the Welsh had a completely different format than that of London and Scotland...

A listing from Apothecaries in the 1500's (They also had what they called 'Women's Recipes') - taken from the Local women - but not officiated as such..:>
