Pills, Potions and Poisons: an Apothecary’s Tale


In past times, apothecaries prepared medicines from herbs, minerals and animal products, which they supplied to other medical practitioners or dispensed directly to patients. Over the years there were many apothecaries in Nantwich. This booklet describes the history of apothecaries, presents a study of 17th century Nantwich apothecary Raphe Walley and, working from an inventory of the contents of his shop, explores the remedies he would have provided.
