"Speziale Manuale" -- any ideas?

Postby 113yearslater » 26 Aug 2014, 19:57

I have a death record for my great-grandmother's sister that specifies that this is her father's profession, so far as I can make it out. However, I can't manage to track down a translation for it. Might this sound familiar to anyone?

He was a shopkeeper who sold sweets, spices, seasonings but, in the past, he may also have sold drugs which then became found in a pharmacy or drugstore.

Okay, so basically he sold anything that might come in a tiny box or bottle, I suppose. Thanks so much!

I guess you could look at it that way.
