Phantastica; narcotic and stimulating drugs, their use and abuse by Louis Lewin( Book )

37 editions published between 1928 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long out of print, this is a landmark study on narcotic and psychedelic substances by a world-renowned pharmacologist and toxicologist The first book to bring non-judgmental scientific insights to the use of drugs around the world Provides detailed information on all major drugs of the time, including opium, cocaine, heroin, cannabis, peyote, fly agaric, henbane, datura, alcohol, kava, betel, coffee, tea, cocoa, and tobacco A book credited with starting an era of ethnobotany that continues to the present day The publication of Louis Lewin's Phantastica in 1924 began an era of ethnobotany that is still flourishing today. Until Lewin, books on the use of drugs were purely works of anthropology, concerned with how people used these plants, rather than how the plants produced their famous effects. Lewin, a world-renowned pharmacologist and toxicologist, was fascinated by both, and Phantastica was the first book to bring scientific insights to a survey of the use of drugs around the world. Lewin traveled extensively and acquired an astonishing variety of knowledge, reflected in this book, which provides detailed information on all major drugs of the time, including opium, cocaine, heroin, cannabis, peyote, fly agaric, henbane, datura, alcohol, kava, betel, coffee, tea, cocoa, and, of course, tobacco. For thirty years ethnobotanists have bemoaned the fact that Phantastica has been impossible to find; now this landmark work is once again available

The untoward effects of drugs : a pharmacological and clinical manual by Louis Lewin( Book )

13 editions published between 1881 and 2017 in English and German and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Occupying, as it does, a middle ground between pure experimentation and empiricism, the science of materia medica, is enriched alike from the laboratory and observations at the sick bed. It is through a combination of the results furnished through these two channels, that the typical modus operandi of any individual drug can alone be determined. There occur, however, now and then, in the therapeutics! application of certain drugs, certain deviations from this typical, and, to a degree, normal action, the correct perception and significance of which are not always understood. But a knowledge of these is of the utmost importance to the physician, as affording him an explanation of the causes of certain symptoms, and also furnishing him with a guide to his practical management of them. The records of the individual facts here indicated--the appearance of abnormal effects of drugs--are scattered throughout the most diverse parts of medical literature, and are either not at all or but superficially considered in the manuals or text-books of materia medica. For this reason I have for a long time been making a collection of these facts, examining them critically, and making additions to this collection from my own personal experience. I have presented the results of this labor in this book in the hope that they will meet a practical want, and at the same time stimulate others to further observations in the same direction
