When it was published in 1931, A Modern Herbal was the first comprehensive encyclopaedia of herbs to appear since the days of Culpepper. Reissued now for the enjoyment of a new generation freshly awakened to the value of herbalism, this book retains the teaching of the older herbalists and incorporates the discoveries of modern times. It describes, in alphabetical order, over one thousand English and American plants, gives innumerable recipes, and contains the 200 delicate botanical illustrations of the original. The book, which has always stood as a classic of its kind, is rich in practical advice on the cultivation of herbs, their uses and effects, in addition to interesting and amusing anecdotes.
