Most widely held works by John Redman Coxe
The American dispensatory : containing the operations of pharmacy ... : illustrated and explained according to the principles of modern chemistry ... by John Redman Coxe( Book )

31 editions published between 1806 and 1979 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr.Thacher,in addition to the common or standard articles,which hold a place in every pharmacopoeia, has devoted much attention to the popular and interesting subject of indigenous medicines. On the authority of the excellent works of Professor Barton, the occasional communications of others, and his own private experience, he has introduced more than fifty native articles of real or reputed medicinal efficacy. Many of these have been the subjects of experiment for a sufficient length of time to decide their character.Others are only known to possess positive and active properties, without having their natureprecisely investigated. ... As the American New Dispensatory will no doubt continue to be a standard work among the physicians and apothecaries of the eastern states, we have made our suggestions solely with a hope of promoting it's utility. We willingly ascribe to the author the credit of having collected hisinelerials with great industry, and of having presented much useful matter in an interesting light of view. These condeditionisim-proved with many valuable additions and will form a veryuse-fulacquisitiontomost American practitioners. -- N Engl J Med Surg 1813; 2:290-295July 1, 1813

American medical botany : being a collection of the native medicinal plants of the United States, containing their botanical history and chemical analysis, and properties and uses in medicine, diet and the arts, with coloured engravings by Jacob Bigelow( )

in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of Jacob Bigelow's American Medical Botany, being a Collection of the Native Medicinal Plants of the United States, lies in its illustrations. Along with William Barton's Vegetable Materia Medica, publication of which was almost simultaneous, Bigelow's book was one of the first two American botanical books with colored illustrations. More significantly, Bigelow's work was the first book published in the United States to have plates printed in colors. Like Barton, Bigelow originally intended to illustrate his massive work in traditional fashion with hand-colored copperplates, hiring the engraver William B. Annin and numerous colorists to produce the plates for Vol. I, part 1. But, finding this process too slow and expensive, Bigelow searched for a method that would allow the swift and easy application of color directly onto the plate, as well as allow rapid cleaning of the plate between impressions. Richard Wolfe showed that Bigelow turned to a printing process involving etched stone, a technique developed in Europe shortly before Alois Senefelder's invention of lithography in 1795-1796; it is likely, however, that Bigelow and his engravers discovered this technique independently, as printing from stone was little known in America at this time
