Summary
This book reveals the surprising impact of medicine stamp duty (1783-1941) on pharmaceutical practice and the interface of law and government. It explains the considerable impact the tax had on chemists and druggists, how it led to an improvement in professional status, but undermined it by reinforcing their reputations as traders. The tax, which lasted until 1941, was imposed to raise revenue. The book is divided into 5 chapters: (1) proprietary medicines and the fiscal state; (2) the medicine stamp duty and the authority of law; (3) the tax and the profession of pharmacy; (4) the tax and the integrity of medicines; and (5) the demise of the tax
