It is basically a catalog of colors, and the dye plants to achieve them. Some of the plants on the list are easily found or grown, while others, especially the range of mushrooms, will likely be much more difficult to find. Thankfully, the author has included botanical names, since plants often go by different common names, depending on locale.
The author has organized her information by color, with all the different plants that would render that color, along with mordants to achieve the best results.
I would have liked to see a different arrangement of information, so I would know at a glance what colors I could expect from a particular plant with the use of differing mordants on different fibres.
