By Josi Martin on 30 July 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First I must start by admitting that the published images, of the original herbal, are not terribly clear in this edition and this is a reproduction of the actual herbal - not a modern transcription. It also takes a bit to get the hang of the 18th Century English: a number of letters that look like 'f' are 's' really, the wording is somewhat verbose and they seem fond of starting the paragraphs 'Of...'.

However this is an incredibly important work so it gets five stars despite these faults. Salmon gets his information from a number of earlier sources and this book represents a point in herbalism's history where the power of plants for medical uses was still being acknoweledged by the medical profession but they were making some strides in the development of medical knowledge at this time, unlike earlier herbals.

It has a very up to date, and about the last flourish, of the western energetic system of herbs in the 'qualities' descriptions.

One Complaint - this is only half the work (despite the large size). Please issue the other book!!
