  • “An extraordinary book, a gripping trip back through time to discover a different but still unique Venice and its political intrigues and mysteries” (Art as a Part of Culture). In a medieval Venice ravaged by famine and orgiastic revelries, the protagonists of The Apothecary’s Shop explore the depths of the city and the paths to the supernatural in their search for a missing child. The young Costanza, of the noble Grimani family, has disappeared. Edgardo, the family scribe, vows to return the girl to her family, an ambitious enterprise considering his failing eyesight. Physical ailments and emotional torment hinder Edgardo’s search, for as he undertakes this perilous investigation, images of his own lost love—Kallis, a slave from the Far East who disappeared in a storm years ago—are resurrected. Help arrives in the form of Abella, the only female doctor in Venice. From her, Edgardo learns of occult medical practices and of Sabbatai’s Apothecary, where the city’s most desperate citizens seek heretical remedies and concoctions to sooth their suffering. It is here, however, where the secret of Constanza’s disappearance may lie. Venal physicians and legitimate healers, unscrupulous relatives, mystics and apothecaries, wealthy nobility and the wretched poor, undertakers, Eastern merchants, African slave traders, each plays a role this ingeniously constructed mystery set in the busy and licentious trade port of Venice. “Nobody writes about Venice like Roberto Tiraboschi in The Apothecary’s Shop.” —L’Unità “An extremely elegant intrigue, with cosmopolitan influences that reflect the character of the city, several unlikely plot twists, and the panache to put just enough confidence in the mind of the reader to keep the pages turning quickly.” —Seattle Review of Books

  • Genre : Poetry
  • I want an ingenious fibre to be treated as funny tragedy expressing a classic argument against materialism which runs like this: which changes of costume are bound to be dangerous? The Apothecary is an extinct fern called a sentence unfurling in the mists. It is also Lisa Robertson's first book. Originally published in a small edition by Tsunami Editions in Vancouver in 1991, it quietly disappeared until it was re-released in 2001 on a need-to-know-basis. BookThug is now pleased to make this text available in a more permanent and pleasing edition. The Apothecary stems from the author's desire to remake the sentence ï to let it be capacious, preposterous, convivial, and hang it from a pronoun worn like a phantom limb. Robertson wants that ghostly pronoun to reinvent itself afresh in each sentence. Looking towards the eighteenth century, sometimes through a lens occasionally borrowed from contemporary sources, the text of The Apothecary is precise, intoxicating materia medica dispensed by one of Canada's most important contemporary posts at the beginning of her career with the use of florid instruments.

An absolute delight” (Charles de Lint, author of the Newford Series). It is Christmastide, 1363, and two suspicious deaths in the infirmary of St. Mary’s Abbey catch the attention of the powerful John Thoresby, Lord Chancellor of England and Archbishop of York. One victim is a pilgrim, while the second is Thoresby’s ne’er-do-well ward, both apparently poisoned by a physic supplied by Master Apothecary Nicholas Wilton. In the wake of these deaths, the archbishop dispatches one-eyed spy Owen Archer to York to find the murderer. Under the guise of a disillusioned soldier keen to make a fresh start, Owen insinuates himself into Wilton’s apothecary as an apprentice. But he finds Wilton bedridden, with the shop being run by his lovely, enigmatic wife, Lucie. As Owen unravels a tangled history of scandal and tragedy, he discovers at its center a desperate, forbidden love twisted over time into obsession. And the woman he has come to love is his prime suspect. “Essential for historical fans.” —Library Journal “[Robb] lives up to the standard set by master medievalist Ellis Peters.” —Booklist

  • Genre : Fiction
  • A dramatic novel exploring the lives of those caught up in the dreadful and arbitrary violence of World War II in Czernowitz, and its aftermath in Vienna. The Apothecary continues the story of the characters from The Walnut Tree, this time focusing on Felix. Like his sister Sussel, Felix is a pharmacist, and the book follows his life, and those of several other important characters, from the city of Czernowitz during the war years to Vienna in the 1960s. The forties are presented with the immediacy and reality that could only be supplied by someone who has lived this astonishing experience. Felix saves a young Jewish girl from being deported by the Russians, and procures the release of his own parents from cattle cars because a local Soviet official is in love with him. Then, when the German army moves in, Felix has to escape on his own, fleeing into the Caucasus Mountains to save his life. Twenty years on, Felix finds his childhood sweetheart, Martina, in Vienna, married to a former German soldier. Gerhardt is wracked by guilt because of his actions in Czernowitz during the war. Gerhardt's story, Martina's, Felix's and others, are all told with the same intense intimacy of detail. The Apothecary is filled with fascinating characters and chilling circumstances. Its style and originality, its charm and vividness, its lovely imagery and its wisdom, all make it an important book. It is the third book in an informal trilogy dealing with Jewish life in both cosmopolitan cities and in an East European village in the first half of the 20th Century - an outstanding literary accomplishment.

  • In Victorian London, the fates of physician Simon Bell and apothecary Gaelan Erceldoune entwine when Simon gives his wife an elixir created by Gaelan from an ancient manuscript. Meant to cure her cancer, it kills her. Suicidal, Simon swallows the remainder--only to find he cannot die. Five years later, hearing rumors of a Bedlam inmate with regenerative powers like his own, Simon is shocked to discover it's Gaelan. The two men conceal their immortality, but the only hope of reversing their condition rests with Gaelan's missing manuscript. When modern-day pharmaceutical company Transdiff Genomics unearths diaries describing the torture of Bedlam inmates, the company's scientists suspect a link between Gaelan and an unnamed inmate. Gaelan and Transdiff Genomics geneticist Anne Shawe are powerfully drawn to each other, and her family connection to his manuscript leads to a stunning revelation. Will it bring ruin or redemption?

  • You're going to love The Apothecary, an extraordinary techno thriller jam-packed with action and suspense! From a "Foreword Reviews," Award Winning Author, Marshall Chamberlain gives us another adventure into plausible reality. Set in Atlanta, Georgia, The Apothecary is a nano-technology thriller, exploring the heights of human degeneracy and the vile consequences of insane arrogance. "Street deals and deals, fiascoes and undercover labs, subterfuge, high technology, and a story that rises to the top of the political foodchain...gripping thriller...satisfyingly hard to put down." -Midwest Book Review: Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer A TOP SECRET, DOD NANOTECHNOLOGY PROJECT IS COMPROMISED. A ROGUE SCIENTIST EXPERIMENTS ON HUMAN BEINGS. DESIGN OF INEXPENSIVE NANO-DRUGS TAKES OVER THE DRUG INDUSTRY. THE NANO REPLICATION PROCESS CAN DESTROY THE PLANET. Dr. Corey Parnevik, the director of Pharmco's DOD project, who functions under heavy medication to control behavior disorders, disappears along with proprietary, hi-tech nanite inventory-test products capable of significantly affecting human behavior. A pattern of mysterious homicides manifests, and Parnevik becomes a prime suspect. The Atlanta PD investigates and is assisted by an unlikely alliance of three civilians: Mallory Driscoll, a lawyer and sister to the first homicide victim; Ryan McKenzie, a DEA agent with a past romantic attachment to Mallory; and Professor Barius VonMitton, a reclusive, retired Emory University academic plagued by multiple personality disorder. The stakes quickly morph into a matter of the highest national security when Parnevik's profane experimenting and complicity lead to a disaster in the nano-labs at Atlanta's Georgia Tech University. With the President of the United States involved and the media ready to pounce, the pursuit of the elusive Parnevik leads the alliance to the mountains of North Georgia, the slopes of the French Alps, the mesas of New Mexico, the hallowed halls of Washington, D.C., and the city streets of Caracas. Again, Chamberlain gives readers an exploration into plausible reality, filled with suspense-one of the best techno thrillers of the decade.

The Society of Apothecaries was incorporated as a City Livery Company by royal charter from James I on 6 December 1617 in recognition of apothecaries' specialist skills in compounding and dispensing medicines. The Society received its Grant of Arms six days later. The largest of the livery companies of the City of London, The Society of Apothecaries has an interesting and colourful history, which is outlined here in detail. This volume will appeal to those with interest in the Society of Apothecaries, and it is not to be missed by collectors of allied literature. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
