Introduction to the scanned version.
Arranged by Natural Order and Family, this manual and textbook for graduate and practicing pharmacists is quite similar to Culbreth's Materia Medica. The format is such that it can be scanned and OCR'd, unlike Culbreth's, a bravura display of arcane typesetting complexity. Further, unlike Culbreth, which I reorganized by genus, I have retained the original format of Sayre, i.e., from Algæ to Compositæ, by family. I am splitting it into comfortable-sized .pdf files, rather than have some gigantic 20M single file. All are bookmarked.

Thank you, Michael, for this Materia Medica.
