Bottle of cinchonine sulphate crystals with wax sealed cork stopper, English, 1860-1910
Cinchonine sulphate is a cheaper alternative to quinine sulphate and was also used to treat malaria. Both cinchonine and quinine are present in cinchona bark. Once they had been chemically extracted from cinchona in the early 1800s, a new range of anti-malaria drugs were developed.
