‘The apothecary to send for…’ – with Select Society

Monday, September 17, 2018
8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


James Buchan is an Itinerant Apothecary travelling from town to town, erecting his ‘bothy’ at markets and fairs, from which he sells potions and remedies, attends to common ailments and injuries and demonstrates remedies and techniques. As a ‘qualified’ Apothecary, he explains the nature and make-up of society, contrasting his role and situation in life with that of the grand ‘Doctors of Physic’ and the rough and coarse Surgeons!
