Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Nicholas Culpeper (1618-54) was a physician and herbalist during the reign of Elizabeth I, whose practice in East London was famous for treating the poor for no charge. His masterwork, The English Physician (known as Culpeper's Herbal) was published posthumously. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

ein Muss für jeden, der Pflanzen auch unter astrologischen Aspekten betrachten möchte. Mit der bildhaften Ausdrucksweise muss man sich allerdings erst vertraut machen

Sehr interessantes Buch, gut zum darin suchen und neue Dinge erfahren, nichts zum Lesen (ich glaube, nicht mal für perfekt Englisch sprechende Menschen)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A view on Medieval/Renaissance Herbalism and Medicine 21. November 2000
Von Kim Robertson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I first heard of this book as being an excellent primary source for herbs and herbalism from the 16/17th Centuries.

It is very comprehensive and aside from a listing of each herb and its properties, it has several sections teaching the fundiments of medicine of the time. It covers:

* how a herb is assigned to a planet
* how a degree of strength is determined and what it means
* what 'humours' it affects and what 'humours' (bodily fluid systems) are
* and much much more.

If you are looking for a source to use for alternate medicine then this is NOT the best starting place. There are better works of a modern nature out there for that. However, as a back-up resource or a way of learning about the time when medicine was still holistic and not too scentific then this is he book for you.

The Wordsworth edition is in paperback and easy on the pocket. This publisher takes certain classic works and keeps them in print in small runs from time to time by demand. This means that although the book may be not immediately available, it will beome available again in the near future.

I hope this helps you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen 17th Century Herbal Remedies 25. Juni 2005
Von Dew - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book played an important and yet controversial role between formal medicine and herbalism.

Nicholas Culpeper(1616-1654) studied medicine at Cambridge, but gave up his studies when his fiancée was killed in a thunderstorm. Culpeper eventually set up his own healing practice near London. He was moved by the suffering of the poor and decided to help the them by selling medicines to them at a very cheap price and encouraged them to use local species.

In the 17th century, the physicians were leaning more toward non-botanical medications such as mercury, arsenic iron and sulfur etc. It is most likely that the physicians of that day resented Culpeper's popularity and considered him a threat, since be made their secrets accessible to the common person--therefore they tried to discredit him.

The people of England due to his genuine concern for them loved Culpeper. The colonist took his herbal to the New World as a medical reference and guide of when to plant and harvest these medical plants.

His mistake was he threatening the near monopoly on medical knowledge that the College of Physicians enjoyed.

This book contains a comprehensive description of nearly all herbs along with descriptions of their medicinal properties and instructions on preparing and using them to treat many different illnesses. It also included precise botanical illustrations. For 300 years this book was the standard for herbal remedies.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Culpeper's Complete Herbal 8. Januar 2000
Von Chris Belgum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you have an interest in Herbs and their culinary, mystic and medicinal usages, both modern and historical, then this IS the book for you. It is beautifully illustrated and text is written in both medieval English and modern English.
Each plant (it includes some fruits and trees as well) is pictured and the habitat is described. Along with each description is any affinity to a ruling planet as well.
My only critisism is that it contains a great deal of jargon, you will need to read up on herbalism per se to understand how to make tinctures etc. That said the book is a reference to the plants not the art.
I have had my (well thumbed copy)for over 10 years now and it is a constant companion to my interests in the natural power of the Earth and her fruits.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Culpeper 31. Dezember 2013
Von Gary W. Price - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
My Astrology teacher had the original Culpeper's herbal,with a section on Physic or how to diagnose sickness with
15th-17th century astrology, quite accurate in fact. Unfortunately, when this book came to the colonies from England,
that portion was edited out by Puritans to the New World. These Puritans were remainders of Oliver Cromwell's reformation
who disagreed with King Henry VIII over the Bible and sought religious freedom, only to persecute those in the New World
who did not believe as they; hence Astrology was akin to sorcery and witchcraft and died out in the United States very early.
Nevertheless, the herbal portion is still intact, accurate and quite good for home and family use for enthusiastic home herbalists
who want to cut down on their medical bills and put this book to use for everyday plant therapy, or for those who like plants as
a hobby.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Oldy, but a a goody 2. Januar 2013
Von Petra DeVerona - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book represents the beginnings of written scientific modern physician's references. That being said, there is some decidedly unscientific stuff in it (Culpeper lists what astrological signs the plants fall under), but it was a beginning (the original dates back to the 1600's). It is interesting from a historical point of view and has some good info about herbs. However, I would not recommend trying to make, use, or administer too many of the "cures" described (I had to laugh about the cure for lust). Those who have an interest in botany, herbs, history, holistic medicine, and/or medicine will find this interesting. If nothing else, it will show how far science and medicine have come.
