I like honesty in a book, so the first sentence in the preface immediately attracted me. It stated that some remedies might be helpful as a placebo only.

The actual remedies were written in 1915. The book starts with extensive dictionary of medicines and terms.

The book is organized in chapters, each one addressing a number of issues. For example, a section on babies consists of more than 500 questions. The answers are written in plain language, useful and to the point. The section on herbs provides a description of common roots and plants, with recommendations when to collect them, and how to use them. Unfortunately, the illustrations are not part of the Kindle publication.

In addition to mother's remedies some sections have Physician's treatment section.

The book is nicely organized with an index, so you can find topics by either by decease or by remedy.

I found this book to be an interesting read. Both to see how things change and what remained the same. My great grandfather was a doctor at that time frame so the reference had a special meaning to me, trying to imagine his life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing January 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting book that was copyrighted in 1910. I mention this because you should not consider the contents as valid medical advice. Instead, it should be appreciated as a historical work that provides some true insight into the concerns of parents, and the understanding of medicine at the date of publishing, nearly a century ago.

As for this version, I must say that I was disappointed that the illustrations were missing. Plus, in the 'Amazon Cloud' version that I read, it's difficult to see the overall organization. And, in fact, it's my recommendation that if you are interested in this book that you hop over to Archive dot Org and see their versions which do include illustrations, and notes by the transcriber as to errata (typos, etc.)

That version is also free and available in a number of formats, including pdf.

Having grown up seeing so many of these remedies used, this book is great for having it all in one place. Lots of helpful information if you want to use tried and true home remedies.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! September 1, 2013
By Alisa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When you see a book like this you have to be realistic. It is an OLD book and of course most of the suggestions are out-of-date but that is not why I got this book. As a nurse, I enjoy reading about how people took care of each other back before so-called "modern medicine." I love the antiquated way this book "speaks." I could tell by the cover it was an "older" book. Enjoy it for what it is.

This is good for people who like to use homemade remedies vs using the "traditional" medicines from dr's. If you are into homeopathy this is for you
