Rare Books - THERAPEUTICS: Its PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE - Horatio Wood (1905)
Once upon a time, American Medicine as practiced in the 1800's was predominately driven by the use of plant medicines. These old Materia Medica's and Dispensatory type books are laden with a wealth of history and knowledgeable plant medicine usage.

These type of books are really indispensable, especially if you want to be an effective herbalist.
