A rare hectographed Ottoman book on medicinal chemistry, made for the lectures at the Imperial School for Medicine in Istanbul in 1889 and edited by Esat Şerefeddin, who would be come one of the leading late Ottoman / early Turkish botanists. The book was published in a limited edition only for the students of the institution.

The editor of the text Esat Şerefeddin Köprülü (1866-1942), was a lecturer at the Imperial Medical School from 1889 on. He would in the following years become a known and prolific Ottoman / Turkish botanist and author, who served as a teacher of botany until 1933 at the Medical school, University and at the Military School. He was one of the first Ottoman specialist in botanical medicine. Şerefeddin also served as the chief physician at various hospitals during the Turco-Greek war (1897), the Balkan Wars (1912-1913) and the first World War (1914-1918).

Şerefeddin published his first book in 1901, but the literature does not mention his early works such as our book.

Özege mentions a chemists called Faik Paşa as an author.

We could not find any institutional examples.
