This book, published in 1651 under the title A Physician Directory: Or a translation of the dispensatory, definitely reveals its age by its stained and yellowed pages. This book is written in english but was initially in latin. As for its size, it is a very accessible and easily carriable book size of approximately 7 by 11 inches. The cover seems to be covered by a flab of brown leather which is attached to the rest of the book like a collage. The edges of the cover are overused and the leather is paler.
