I finally have a tome!


Gerard, John. The Herbal Or General History of Plants. Edited by Hill, Thomas.
1975 Reprint. New York, NY: Dover Publication, 1633.


While I am very excited by the arrival of my newest  book,  I didn't really build a shrine to it, those are from St. Valentine's Day, but it does help provide a perspective on the size, doesn't it?

I had been using this online version of  the 1597 original and I will refer back to it on occasion, but for the most part, it doesn't seem as though much of the information was changed.  The editor also does a good job of indicating his commentary, so this reproduction was much less dissappointing than my copy of Culpeper's.
