by Nicholas Culpeper
First published over 350 years ago, during the reign of Elizabeth I, The complete Herbal by physician, herbalist and astrologer Nicholas Culpeper, remains one of the most comprehensive listings of herbs and their uses in existence. In this illustrated edition, over 400 herbs are described in details, along with their 'government and virtules', remedies and cautions. Although much of the medical advice must be taken with a pinch of salt, the engaging tone, enthusiasm and expertise of the author are irresistible and highly entertaining.
