13 Moons is the best! Placed my order at 3:00pm EST and received my UPS confirmation at 3:34pm EST! No other place will ship anything that quickly and still be accurate! Not only that but everyone at the shop personally signing the invoices makes 13 Moons a top notch operation! Have worked in the service industry for 20 years and these folks are the best!

A Modern Herbal
Volume I: A-H
The Medicinal, Culinary, Cosmetic and Economic Properties, Cultivation and Folk-Lore of Herbs, Grasses, Fungi, Shrubs & Trees with Their Modern Scientific Uses

by Mrs. M. Grieve

If you want to know how pleurisy root, lungwort and abscess root got their names, how poison ivy was used to treat rheumatism, or how garlic guarded against the bubonic plague, consult A Modern Herbal. This twentieth-century version of the medieval herbal is as rich in scientific fact and folklore as its predecessors and is equally encyclopedic in coverage. From aconite to zedoary, not an herb, grass, fungus, shrub or tree is overlooked; and strange and wonderful discoveries about even the most common of plants await the reader.

A Modern Herbal also includes many unique features, perhaps the most interesting are the hundreds of recipes and instructions for making ointments, lotions, sauces, wines and fruit brandies like bilberry and carrot jam, elderberry and mint vinegar, sagina sauce, and cucumber lotion for sunburn; and the hundreds of prescriptions for tonics and liniments for bronchitis, arthritis, dropsy, jaundice, nervous tension, skin disease, etc.
