An interesting historical account of the use of “narcotic” drugs in the 19th century. There seems to be a lot of interesting tidbits in this book, though I found it a bit confusing to navigate. Much of its appeal lies in seeing through the eyes of a knowledgeable contemporary scientist. The Seven Sisters of Sleep is an intriguing curiosity rather than a sound reliable resource.
