A Garden of Herbs - Rohde, E., S. Originally published in the 1900s, this book has been written primarily as a guide for those wishing to create an old-fashioned herb garden, and who want to know how to use these herbs as our great-grandmothers did.

Contents Include: - Of Herb Gardens - Knots for the Housewife's Garden - Of Sunday Herbs - Of Sallets - Herb Pottages - Herb Puddings - Herb Drinks and Homemade Wines - Additional Receipts - Of Picking and Drying of Herbs - Of Sweet Scents.
