Antique medicine chests are highly collectable and priceless, often unique, examples are on view in museums worldwide. They merit consideration, not only for their historical importance, but also for their beauty. Using examples from museums andprivate collections throughout europe, 'Antique Medicine Chests' examines the styles of teh cabinets to provide guidance on dating and their contents-- the bottles, drugs and accessories -- are also considered." - from the rear cover.
