Would anyone be so kind as to provide me with information about a mid-19th century apothecary, such as their job, what tools they'd have, etc.
Any help would be appreciated.

Also, take the time to peruse the threads in this folder. A great deal of what you are asking for is already here, either as comments or as links or titles, etc.
