Cannot recommend this book highly enough. All our friends agree that the blackberry oxymel is better for colds than anything else they've ever tried - we end up making gallons of it every year now in order to be able to give it away. Text perfectly judged, illustrations excellent for identification purposes. I love the fact that most of the other herbalists quoted (as they plentifully are) are not from the 1500s and 1600s, but 20th century. A real gem. I agree the indexing could be better (hint hint for next edition), but that's not a reason to hold back the fifth star.
