This course, which is given only during the summer-session, will continue for three months, and will be illustrated, not only by specimens of the different articles, and of the different formulae of the London and Edinburgh Pharmacop ias, but also by a variety of pharmaceutical experiments. Before the commencement of this course, Dr Duncan proposes to publish an improved edition of his catalogue of the Materia Medica, intended as a synopsis for his lectures on that subject. In the former editions of this list, the articles were arranged alphabetically. But besides the officinal, the Linnaean, and the English name of each article, it contained also an account of the natural order to which it belonged, of the source from whence it could be most advantageously obtained, particularly, whether it should be gathered in the fields, raised in gardens, or imported from abroad, of the different fixed formulae of the Edinburgh Pharmacop ia into which it enters, and of the different extemporaneous formulae B b 4 under t under which it might be most conveniently used. To this list, which will be reprinted with a sew alterations, he now means to add two other arrangements of the Materia Medica, one according to the natural orders to which the different articles belong, the other according to their obvious operation on the human body, or generally received medical virtues. But though these lists will, in many cases, give a distinct view of the affinities of different substances, with respect to medical powers, yet, in his lectures, he proposes, as formerly, to treat of each article in alphabetical order, giving a full account of the natural and medical history
