Medical Botany: or Descriptions of the More Important Plants Used in Medicine, with Their History, Properties, and Mode of Administration Griffith, R. Eglesfeld - 1847 1st Edition
* These early books, like Dispensatory's, Materia Medica's, Medical Botany, and the like, come from a time when Botanical Medicine was the most used form of medicine in the world. As a professional Clinical Herbalist, I find them a rich source of knowledge, history and practical use, especially in these modern times. They are most valuable to own and will provide a lifetime of exploration!
