It is rare to find an herbal reference guide to herbs so charmingly and exactly illustrated. Gardeners will find the illustrations helpful to see what less familiar herbs look like. But Culpeper's Color Herbal offers much more. Each herb is listed individually with a color illustration, a description, other information, specific exerpts from 16th century herbalist Nicholas Culpepper, and description of modern medicinal uses. This allows the reader, or the herbalist, the unique opportunity to compare traditional uses of the past with modern uses and current scientific research on active compounds. It is interesting to see which herbs science has proven to have medicinal value similar to the old uses. I was surprised, for instance, to find that Culpepper's old remedy for bronchitis, Colt's Foot (a familiar garden weed), is actually the source for a substance used in modern over the counter cough remedies! I was even more surprised when an Eyebright solution stopped a case of conjunctivitis - my first venture into herbal treatments! Descriptions are given for which parts of the herbs are useful medicinally. Appendixes I have not seen elsewhere provide 1) definitions of old time ailments, like the agues, for which old Culpepper prescribed, 2) a listing by ailment which herbs old Cullpepper used for which ailments and 3)a modern listing by ailment of which herbs are considered useful now. All of this information is presented extremely clearly and concisely - about half a page is devoted to each herb - making it an easy reference in a world of complicated herbals. I would not say this is THE total, definitive guide to herbs. It IS an herbal to come back to time and again in my library for reference and just plain pleasure. I recommend it for beginner through intermediate herbalist, those who want to venture into / expand their herb garden into specifics, the history lover and to the curious. A keeper.

...but I do not recommend Nicholas Culpepper's prescriptions. It is interesting to read what the 17th century physicians considered to be appropriate remedies and the illustrations are a wonderful aid to identification. However, if you want to practice medicinal herbalism, get a modern book to use in conjunction with Culpepper and take the advice of the modern book if there is a difference.

This is a great book with wonderful color illustrations by one of the master practitioners of our Western Medical Tradition. This is one of the few books that identifies each herb with its planet association. This relationship is an important element to an holistic approach to health. "As above so below". "

Generally a good basic book 24. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I really enjoyed this book and I enjoy using it. The drawings of the plants are well done, and usable for basic identification of plants,and I really enjoyed the updated usages of the plants that are shown. This book is worth purchasing but, I would not consider it a all in one reference book if you are interested in using herbs.
For general information and for the historical aspects its a good fun, enlightening book. Well worth buying for your personal library.

Not actually Culpeper 30. November 2014
Von Talia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was initially very excited with finding this book, but gradually I've grown dismayed with it and am looking for a replacement edition of Culpeper. First of all, Culpeper's books have gone through many editions, and somewhere in the 18th or 19th century people started tampering with what he'd written -- changing some of his astrological properties and so forth. This one is, at the very least, using one of those tampered editions as its basis: it is also missing lots of Culpeper's information, while other new info is added in. For example, some plants included in Culpeper seem to be missing altogether, and others that he didn't include have been added. What info is taken from Culpeper has selectively had that language modernized. As an example, an 1880 edition of Culpeper has this as his description for Alkanet:

"Of the many sorts of this herb, there is but one known to grow commonly in this nation; of which one takes this description -- It hath a great and thick root of a reddish colour; long, narrow hairy leaves, green like the leaves of bugloss, which lie very thick upon the ground; the stalks rise up compassed round about, thick with leaves, which are lesser and narrower than the former; they are tender, and slender, the flowers are hollow, small, and of a reddish colour."

This book has:

"It has a great and thick root of a reddish colour, long, narrow hairy leaves, and small blue or reddish-purple flowers."

...and it goes on. The descriptions of where to find the herb, and its flowering times, are also completely different between the two editions. The section of Medicinal Virtues is at least kept the same.

Alas, it seems that this book was really meant as just an herbal medicine book and is meant more as a practical guide for modern herbalists, rather than anything useful to a person who was actually interested in Culpeper's writings and history. It's a lovely looking book, but I really wish i could have found something of similar quality without all the tampering.
