This book was useful to me in helping a fellow historian find the meaning of the phrase “pilles of cochee” we could find from Shakespeare’s Words, that Shakespeare had used “pilles” to mean “pills” in King Lear, but were at a loss on the term “cochee” until we found a reference to “cochie” in this medical dictionary. Already sure the term was medicinal from the context in question, we confirmed using this book that cochee was a laxative made from the ingredients detailed in this dictionary. Fabulous medical reference. Access the free digital version here. This free digital version is only a preview, and as such does not include the entire book.
