A monograph on the history of a pharmacy in Dynów by San.

    First note concerning Jarosław on the San comes from 1152 and first notes about pharmacists are mentioned in the town documents from 1600, the year of the death of Stanisław, the first pharmacist. In the first half of the 17th century 15 pharmacists serving as mayors, councilors, jurors and often donating money to public expenditure (Jakub Prywicki, pharmacist, donated 200 florins to a collegiate church orchestra) were working in Jarosław. Also, notes about dispensing of prescriptions from Krasiczyn deserve to be mentioned. Józef Sawiczewski (1762-1825), a famous professor of Pharmacy at the Jagiellonian University came from the nearby Zarzecze. In December 1869 three pharmacists were mentioned in the municipal records: Józef Rohm, Aleksander Bohus and Edmund Mańkowski.
