For over 350 years, this historic and definitive guide to herbal remedies written by physician Nicholas Culpepper has been the book to turn to for anyone interested in using herbs. This beautifully illustrated edition combines the charm, elegance, and information of his original 17th-century text with up-to-date, modern, practical usage. It includes details about where each herb can be found, its flowering time, astrology, and medicinal benefits.-- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

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". "

it is important to me to have a good understanding of herbal remedies
am 25. Mai 2016 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
As a novelist in the fantasy genre, it is important to me to have a good understanding of herbal remedies, both their actual properties, and things that have long been associated with them. This book is a delight to read, with engaging hand-drawn images of the plants described, as well as both a traditional and a contemporary look at each of the items.

Culpepper's Most Reverred Herbal
am 3. Februar 2014 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I bought this as a gift to one my most dearest friends and one who helped me to get started in herbalism. Culpepper's Herbal is ranked as the highest amongst any Herbals for sale as being the most highest in excellance, and so is anything associated with it. This seller sent this is a very fast ship and the book was in perfect condition and I would buy from this seller again.

Cute book if you are a collector
am 11. Juli 2011 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I collect herbals and this one I purchased through the Amazon used book program (if you have not used it - you HAVE to try it - I have gotten some wonderful deals). Anyway - the book doesn't cover anything groundbreaking - the info is good, and the pictures are ok. Since this is a re-print of an old book, nothing really all that new in it. The format is very charming as they describe it - so that part is cool. Nothing new in this book - if you are looking for content, go with Grieve. If you are looking for a cool little addition to your collection - you will not be disappointed with this little guy =)
Great visual book!

This book is great! Lots of drawings and in color too! This is not like a field guide book which as actual photos of the plants being discussed. Good descriptions of each herb, they are short, but consist of "Where to find it", "Flowering Time", "Astrology", "Medicinal Virtues", and 'Modern Uses". I feel this book is a great addition to my library.
