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.

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.

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 It is an OLD book and of course most of the suggestions are out-of-date but that is not why I got this book.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 book is a very helpful book considering it was written originally in 1910. However, many (not all) of the remedies will still work today. However, I believe that if one has a serious condition, they should see a physician.

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.

This book is really handy to have because it's full of remedys that have been tried by moms and people. It may have just been the way my tablets formatted but it was a little hard to read because it's all together like a story. (At the time I bought I had a cold so I was looking for cold remedies) looking it over its full of all kinds ill provide a picture below so you can see the chapters. Over all I love this book I'm glad to have it in my collection.

A fun read to learn about how things were viewed and done over a century ago. Not only is there medical information, but also on plants, cooking, an extensive secret on manners, ceremonies and lots of household hints. A trip back in time.

I liked the concept of having all of the old-time remedies in a book I could reference...however, I found how the book was organized makes it hard for me to use. I want to be able to find something at the drop of a hat. If you're looking for these types of remedies and have time to spend while you familiarize yourself with this book, then you won't mind. I do enjoy that there is a whole book of old-time remedies, and even better, that it was free on my Kindle.
