The English physician by Nicholas Culpeper( )

14 editions published between 1652 and 2016 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The English Physician was a humble vest-pocket-sized medical guide for the common person, by the prolific herbalist and author Nicholas Culpeper. It was a staple in 17th-century England, as it was short, written in accessible prose, and inexpensive; and perhaps as attractive, it took a decidedly skeptical view of "official" medicine, relying instead on popular remedies. Culpeper's philosophy was to teach the common folk to minister to themselves by providing them with the tools and knowledge for self-help. -- back cover

As charming and elegant as the 17th-century original, this groundbreaking herbal guide combines Nicholas Culpeper's fascinating text with up-to-date information and modern full-color illustrations. Culpeper--a famed astrologer, physician, and author--covered almost 400 herbs and plants from "Aconite" and "Adder's Tongue" to "Yew "and "Yucca." For each entry, he gave both the Latin and common names, details on where to find it, its flowering time, astrology, and medicinal virtues. Following the alphabetical list of herbs comes the inventory of illnesses and their cures, as it appeared in 1649
