11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Christine Herbert on 9 Sept. 2014
Format: Hardcover
this book is very special - they have taken a relatively unknown (in modern times) herbal by John Parkinson and made it accessible to a modern audience. This has not been done before as far as I know and it makes the work of Parkinson easy to understand. The original Parkinson contains several thousand herbs, and is available online, but trying to understand what he is conveying is not easy - I have tried....
Parkinson's original was hugely influential - Culpepper got much of his knowledge from this work, but it was never really acknowledged until now. This book has brought it to our attention, it has focused on a small proportion of the herbs but that proportion is very relevant as they have chosen those which are native to Britain but which are often not known about. Imagine trying to choose 75 from several thousand?
The information they have given is a mix of 16th century and 21st century herbal medicine, the comparison is absolutely fascinating and deserves to be read by experienced herbalists and anyone interested in herbs. This is not a herbal compendium, and the title "Bible" is unfortunate, but the contents are worth their weight in gold.

This is the latest in the Bruton-Seal partnership. I have the other books, and this one is really special. It brings the wisdom of one of the greatest herbalists to today's readers and enables an exploration of the world of healing and enjoyment through herbs. The photographs are beautiful and the text clear and instructive. Anyone who enjoys walks in the country will love it - no more wondering " what's that?" or "what can I do with it?" Absolutely brilliant.
