In the 18th century, there was a “competition” between doctors and apothecaries. The former began making ointments and remedies for their patients, while the latter allowed themselves to practice medicine.
Medical school made the first codex compulsory by judgment of the Paris Parliament on July 23 1748; it was stipulated that it should be found in dispensaries, under the penalty of 500 F. Official doctors were listed and pharmacists had to scrupulously follow their prescriptions.
The codex was later obligatory for all of France starting in 1818.
This one if the 1st edition published after the Parliamentary decree.
