The „galenical“ dissertation which was presented for disputation by Georgius Horčička at Charles
University in 1841 is discussed as far as its content is concerned. The dissertation studies a great
number of pharmaceutical dosage forms, many of which are already obsolete, but a certain number
of which are still in use in the present time. It is probably one of the first dissertations treating of
the given subject.
