Leather bound edition, in New Condition. This is a modern reprint edition and it took me a long time to find the right company to reprint many of the more expensive and rare medical texts. This book is a true treasure! Beautifully bound in complete leather and expertly crafted to be a work of beauty.

Many of these rare and out of print medical/reference texts (the originals) are out of most people's price range, but these wonderful leather bound reprints are an amazing addition to any collection.  This is a beautifully crafted modern reprint, made today by amazing book makers.

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. Those of us who take herbal medicine seriously like to go back to the source, when doctor's and pharmacists used plant medicine daily. These type of books are really indispensable, especially if you want to be an effective herbalist.  

* Truly important today (even more so) as it was when Botanical Medicine was standard practice! Every practicing Herbalist should eventually acquire a copy of this book!
