Summary, etc.:
"First published over 350 years ago, '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 detail, along with their '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."-- back cover.
