This is a preowned book. The dustcover has a corner that is a bit ruffed up with a small tear and there is a slight evidence of moisture along the bottom. The binding is tight and pages are clean.
This book is a delight! With over 500 authentic herb recipes and intriguing recipes for food medicinals as well as other personal recipes neatly compiled. The recipes, sometimes quaint but always serious, reflect the tremendous importance of herbs to the rigorous survival of our forefathers, and afford factual insight into vital aspects of early American life from the 18th century through the period of the Civil War.
There are 23 illustration plates and 92 sketches reproduced from the botanical engravings that appeared in the 1849 edition of Dr. W. Beach's "The American practice condensed, or The family physician - being the scientific system of medicine".
