Culpeper's Color Herbal

Culpeper's Color Herbal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As charming and elegant as the 17th-century original, this groundbreaking herbal guide combines Nicholas Culpepers fascinating text with up-to-date information and modern full-color illustrations. Culpeper—a famed astrologer, physician, and author—covered almost 400 herbs and plants from Aconite and Adders Tongue to Yew and Yucca. For each entry, he gave both the Latin and common names, details on where to find it, its flowering time, astrology, and medicinal virtues.  Following the alphabetical list of herbs comes the inventory of illnesses and their cures, as it appeared in 1649.  Many of these plants still occupy a prominent position in the dispensaries of todays herbalists, so in addition to Culpepers entertaining and often caustic comments and descriptions, there are notes on contemporary usage by an established practitioner

Synopsis:

Updated and illustrated in full color, this classic retains the charm and elegance of Culpeper's 17th-century text. "Beautiful, affordable and particularly relevant...identifies both medicinal virtues and modern uses of each plant. In addition to beautiful color illustrations to help with identification of each plant, readers can contrast the ideas of the 16th and 17th centuries (with) those of today."--"Alive."
