Older book in good condition

Older book. but it is pretty good condition. great information. Every Herbalist needs this Encyclopedia!

An encyclopedia of herbs?

I bought this book for my herbal medicine course... thinking it would have all herbs n in depth information on each one. Disappointed. I didn't need the folklore, how to make dye from plants or recipes, quotes etc..I wanted an encyclopedia on herbs. A lot of herbs I have to work with for school are missing. I believe the information on the one's listed could be in more detail. I did like the basic history, somewhat, but I would lose interest once the author started putting quotes in there n superstitions. Then you're flipping pages back n forth, to this section n that section, regarding different subjects of the plant. If you want just a herbal encyclopedia, this book isn't it.

Great desk reference for herbs!

A must for anyone new to herbalism! This is a wonderful reference book. Each entry has a brief history of the herb, best growing conditions, common uses. The only thing that would make it better is if the illustrations accompanying the entries were in color.

best book on herbs i have found

This book covers all the bases: harvesting, storing, cooking, sachets, medicinal uses.... on and on. I've used mine so much it is falling apart! I bought this book years ago for over $26 and it was worth it then! Its a steal now!
