Stock shortages - since the lockdown we have been having difficulties getting stock. Some factories have closed and others are operating on reduced hours. Shipping is also affected. Where possible we have sourced alternative products.

The Victorian Chemist and Druggist

W.A. Jackson

After a historical introduction and a description of a Victorian chemist and druggist's shop, this book describes and illustrates many of the items used and sold there. Most of the dispensing equipment and containers for the drugs used are now obsolete and appear from time to time in antique shops. Articles sold over the counter included medicines, perfumes and toiletries and a wide variety of objects used in the sickroom or nursery. The book also contains a chapter on medical and surgical instruments.
