For more than 300 years, Culpeper's Complete Herbal has been the standard in the field of herbal remedies.

Includes precise botanical illustrations to aid in identification.

ABOUT THE BOOK

First published over 350 years ago during the reign of Elizabeth I, Culpeper's Herbal remains one of the most complete listings of herbs and their uses in existence. From Adder's Tongue to Yarrow, each of the 411 herbs is described in detail, along with its government and virtues, 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. Also included is Culpeper's advice on gathering, drying, conserving, and using herbs to get the most out of them. This collector's edition is a must-have for anyone interested in herbs and their uses. Each entry is illustrated with a finely detailed image and there are thirty beautiful full-page plates throughout the book.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

Due to the nature of Nicholas Culpepper's language/the era it was written, sometimes the information may seem sketchy to the untrained eye, but I own two copies of this book & my mother has owned a copy since I was very young (if not before I was born) and I swear by it or any information about healing attributes of herbs, vegetables, and other things herbal that have been long forgotten. Brilliant stuff :)

The original and best reference book for anyone interested in herbal remedies was written in the mid-C17th by Nicholas Culpeper. He also wrote several other books for medical practitioners, and together they give a good insight into treatments of the time.

An excellent reference book for all things herbal. It includes a complete description and the medicinal properties of countless herbs.
