Once I had this book borrowed from a local library. It is an extensive alphabetical list of alkaloids containing a brief chemical, physical and pharmaceutical info under each alkaloid name. (Eg. melting points of the substance and its salts, solubilities, crystallisation, angles of rotation of polarised light, effects on ingestion, occurence in nature, etc.). Anyone with an interest in plant substances will find it interesting. The copy I have seen was printed in 1947 in New York, so today it may be a little out of date.
