My detailed study of “The Countesse of Kents Pouder” recipe — Elizabeth Talbot Grey’s popular polychrest medication, of such repute that it was reprinted countless times, and even included in the authoritative 18th-century pharmacopoeia known as Quincy’s Dispensatory — was originally published at a different website in September 2007, and is now being repurposed for She-philosopher.com.
As of September 2012, there are about 15 webessays in the expanded study, which traces the recipe’s evolution over a 100-year period.
