It’s a grey day here in Boston on this first posting Monday of 2018, so I thought to brighten it up a bit with one of my favorite herbals.
This is from an 1852 reprint of Culpeper’s complete herbal : with nearly four hundred medicines, made from English herbs, physically applied to the cure of all disorders incident to man; with rules for compuounding them: also, directions for making syrups, ointments, &c, a work originally published in the seventeenth century by English physician Nicholas Culpeper.
The herbal has a long reprint history as you can see from the 18 different versions we have in the MHL collection.
From the 1995 Minnesota Medicine — click the image to read the full article!
