Color Herbal : Culpeper's - Nicholas Culpeper

Color Herbal


By: Nicholas Culpeper, David Potterton (Editor), Michael Stringer (Illustrator), E J Shellard (Foreword by)

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

As charming and elegant as the 17th-century original, this ground breaking herbal guide combines Nicholas Culpeper's fascinating text with up-to-date information and modern full-colour illustrations.

Culpeper a famed astrologer, physician, and author covered almost 400 herbs and plants from Aconite and Adders Tongue to Yew and Yucca.

For each entry, he gave both the Latin and common names, details on where to find its flowering time, astrology, and medicinal virtues.

Following the alphabetical list of herbs comes the inventory of illnesses and their cures, as it appeared in 1649.

Many of these plants still occupy a prominent position in the dispensaries of today's herbalists, so in addition to Culpeper's entertaining and often caustic comments and descriptions, there are notes on contemporary usage by an established practitioner
