545 pages, indexed. First Australian edition published by arrangement with Rodale Press. The bad news is that the book has retained American seasons, imperial measures, degrees in fahrenheint and South becomes North or vice versa. A pristine copy that has never been used. "In addition to an alphabetically arranged description of each herb, this lavishly illustrated volume contains background historical material, plus coverage of such subjects as medicinal uses, cooking, & gardening. A popular treatment of the history, uses and cultivation of herbs, science and lore, and home cultivation."
