Gerard’s Herbal

The Herbal or General History of Plants

5 stars
John Gerard & Thomas Johnson, 1633 (repr. Noverre Press, 2015)

Review:

Beautifully illustrated early English seminal classic compendium of herb and plant origins, names (common and Latin), lore, cultivation, location, and recipes for magical and medicinal use from European sources and other countries. Well worth the cost and its weight! (For more info, see this full-size facsimile edition.)
