To all and sundry,
I'm posting this on behalf of a friend. We would both be grateful if
you would reply to him directly, at
Thank you all for your anticipated insight.
I was wondering if you could ask the members of the SHAKSPER (or any
other relevant listserv) if anyone knows (and is willing to contact and
enlighten me about) anything pertaining to apothecary shops in London
from 1572-1634--what precisely they dealt in, what they sold,
particularly luxury goods. Pointers to articles, books, and other
references are welcome.
