The Indigenous Drugs of India; Short Descriptive Notices of the Principal Medicinal Products met with in British India

A WORK like the present, which is intended to promote the extension of our knowledge of Indian drugs, is much to be welcomed. Indian Materia Medica presents a wide field of research for the botanist, chemist, and pharmacologist. Dr. Lall Dey’s book is a useful epitome of the characters and uses of Indian indigenous drugs, and contains a great deal of valuable information. It will form an excellent introduction to larger works on the subject, such as Dymock’s “Pharmacographia Indica,” and Watt’s well-known Dictionary.
