Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Volume 1 of the fullest, most exact, most useful compilation of herbal material. Gigantic alphabetical encyclopedia, from aconite to zedoary, gives botanical information, medical properties, folklore, economic uses, much else. Indispensable to serious reader. "There is not one page of this enchanting book which does not contain something to interest." — Spectator. Total in set: 161 illustrations.

Synopsis:

Here is the first comprehensive record of plants and their uses to have been written for hundreds of years — in fact the only complete modern herbal. A truly encyclopedic work, the two-volume set describes well over 800 different species of herbs, grasses, mushrooms, shrubs and trees. Included is historical background for each plant, cultivation tips, up-to-date information on useful substances derived from each plant, and the different ailments the herb is used to treat. Also included are folk beliefs as well as economic and cosmetic properties of hundreds of plants — from aconite to zedoary. Also, common and Latin names, drawings, photographs, a good index and much more.

Shylsans, July 23, 2010 (view all comments by Shylsans)
One of the most complete herbals I have seen to date. In this book you can find information on lore, history, Botanical, and much more. What I thought was great was the touch of poetry this book brings to some of the herbs listed. It is a great combination of information that is easy to navigate. I truely enjoy both volumes.
