Just the Tonic : A History of Tonic Water, Hardback Book

Just the Tonic : A History of Tonic Water Hardback

Description

Just the Tonic is an accessible yet informative history of tonic water: its connections to the major disease malaria, the cure discovered in the bitter bark of the cinchona tree and its constituent alkaloid quinine.

It is a history deeply intertwined with botanical exploration and empire in the Victorian era, and the role of botanical gardens such as Kew.
