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.
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.
For minor ailments, this book is helpful. Some of the remedies were popular in 1910, but I would not use today. There was great advise about herbal remedies and teas etc, which I benefited by.
The reason that I rated it 5 stars is because the book is not well organized. Other than that, I liked this book as it is a long book with lots of information.
