Format: Paperback
Beautifully illustrated and well layed out, I have found this book useful, both as a gardener and an herbalist. Modern uses as well as Culpepers 16th century work are particularly usful for those interested in the history and progression of herbalism.

Format: Paperback
As the editor says, this is the essence of Culpeper's Complete Herbal and English Physician from 1649. It is illustrated in colour so you can recognise the herbs when you see them growing wild. In Culpeper's time that would have been common knowledge. It is also written in 20th Century English so it's a good deal simpler to understand than the original. Culpeper was strongly influenced by the astrological significance of herbalism, so David Potterton, a recognised expert himself, has included that data as well as the medicinal information and modern uses for each herb.
It's a great book for beginner herbalists: informative, helpful and wise. It's just not exactly Culpeper.

Good illustrations and well referenced. However, not exactly what I wasexpecting - there was far less information in it than I thought therewould be, about half a page per herb, including illustration. Nevertheless, a nice book.

I really like the book, just what I needed for my herbal medicine course. Lovely pictures of the herbs and an overall account of what each plant is good for. The book is good to get a basic understanding of the herbs described. Quick deliveryand condition as described. Thank you.

Book was a bit grubby and could have been cleaned up a bit perhaps, but all pages present - plus someone's interesting bookmark! Good value, all in all
