Summary From Artichoke to Rhubarb- Vine to Hawthorn- The Complete Herbal provides the most comprehensive listings of herbs and their uses in existence. First published over 350 years ago by herbalist and apothecary Nicholas Culpeper, this encyclopedic guide had an extensive impact on modern holistic medicine. This includes his description of the qualities of foxglove, later used to treat heart conditions. In this illustrated edition, over 400 herbs are described in detail, along with their 'government and virtues', remedies, and cautions. Although much of the medical advice must be taken with a pinch of salt, the engaging tone, enthusiasm, and expertise of the author are irresistible and highly entertaining.
