Originally published in the 1930s, this book is a detailed guide to the cultivation and use of herbs, for both medicinal and culinary purposes. Full of useful information and instruction, this book is still of great practical use to today's reader. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
