It is a great resource to have.
Andrea Workman
This is not a book for a pleasure read but it is an excellent one for research for homeopathic cures.

I consider it a historical reference book with a fair amount of current value.

I was tickled to be able to find a hardback copy of this comprehensive collection of information on medicinal, culinary, cosmetic and economic herbs. It describes their properties, how to cultivate and even the folklore of each one and their modern uses. Originally this book was printed in two parts. I'm glad I found a copy with both in one. I have used this book many times for my own herbal preparations. This is not a book for a pleasure read but it is an excellent one for research for homeopathic cures. I feel that the price was worth it for this herbal. I'm glad I have it in my healer's library.

I've found tons of historical information and folklore in this book, that I've not come across in any other ethnobotanical resources. It's also nice to have some concrete usage instructions (dosages, preparations, etc) for many of the plants in the book -- this info is hard to come by. It's fun to read and packed with useful info.

Great book to have in your library ...

Wish this was back in print in one volume but glad I was able to pick this up. One of the most invaluble resources I have give tons of wonderful information very comprehensive...love it. Only wish the pics of the plants were with each description instead of in their own lil groups.

This is the two volume set all in one book and I love it that way. Its jam packed with info. This was written a while ago so a lot more info has been gathered on the herbs in this book. I consider it a historical reference book with a fair amount of current value. But you do need more than just this book if you want to know about herbs and their uses. And its simple but that's what makes it beautiful.

Very complete. Excellent work for anyone interested in the history of herbs and other plants, and in their past and present uses.
