The Japanese Societiy for History of Pharmacy.


After the conclusion of the trial was carried out on december 25th in the 18th year of the Meiji era, write-ups decreased graduallly. Under these circumstances, the traders of medicine began their own publication at their convenience and they put advertisements in them. "Eisei-tebako" by "Kishida ginko" and "Houtan-keikenroku" by "Morita Jihei" were the typical of them. While patent medicines were extremely popular, pharmacists at that time never denied the necessity of patent medicines. Junichiro Shimoyama and Keizo Tanba, who were representatives of pharmacists in Japan, suggested that pharmacists had ought to manage patent medicines and pointed out that excessive write-ups exacerbated the situation.
