Continuing my doctoral research about the institutionalization of pharmacy in Brazil in the 19th century, this project aims to inventory the pharmaceutical literature available to the instruction of students and pharmacy professionals in the country, since the establishment of the chair of clinical, theoretical and practical medicine at the Anatomical, Surgical and Medical School of Rio de Janeiro, in 1809, to the foundation of the first Faculty of Pharmacy, in 1891. The purpose is to map the characters (people and writings) that founded the teaching of pharmacy in Brazil, or at least, who laid the foundations for pharmacy to be established as a regulated and legitimate practice and knowledge in the list of curative activities in Brazilian territory, and to constitute a catalog, provisionally entitled Bibliographic Guide for the history of the teaching of pharmacy in Brazil in the 19th century, with a brief analysis of such writings, highlighting the authors and the contents. It is, therefore, a matter of gathering and analyzing works imported or printed by the national printing press and articles from scientific and commercial journals published in Brazil, which addressed both the subjects of pharmacy courses and teaching and pharmaceutical activity itself. In other words, the research proposed here will scan the teaching and research lines of pharmaceutical studies, whose main objective was, without a doubt, to offer specific and differentiated training to those involved with the art of formulating, in order to establish and consolidate an authority pharmaceutical.
