Of or pertaining to dispensing or dispensation.
By James Champlin Fernald
By Nuttall, P.Austin.
A book containing the history and composition of medicinal substances, with information for their preparation as medicines.
By Stormonth, James, Phelp, P. H.
Dispensatorium; same etymon. Antidotarium, Liber Pharmaceuticus, (F.) Dispensaire. A book which treats of the composition of medicines. A Dispensatory differs from Pharmacopoeia, in containing the physical and medical history of the various substances; whilst the Pharmacopoeia is mainly restricted to the mode of preparing them. The Pharmacopoeia too, is published under the authority of, and by the members of a college or association; whilst a Dispensatory contains the whole of the Pharmacopoeia or Pharmacopoeias, with additions by the author, under whose authority alone it usually appears. The Pharmacopoeia, in other words, is official; the Dispensatory, generally, private. Formerly, the words were used indiscriminately. See Formularv, and Pharmacopoeia.
